This could get interesting.
Tennessee and Clemson are still heavily recruiting RB Mike Davis, who committed to South Carolina last Friday.
Also, the 5-foot-9, 200-pounder from Stephenson High School said he hasn’t made a final decision on if he’ll still take this weekend’s official visit to UGA.
“I don’t know about that; I should know sometime on Thursday,” Davis said. “I haven’t talked to Georgia since the day before I committed.”
On while we were on the topic of UGA: Davis said the timing of last Friday’s commitment to South Carolina had nothing to do with RB Todd Gurley committing the UGA earlier the same day. “I knew a week before that Gurley was going to Georgia. That didn’t really affect my decision at all.”
Fast forward to this week: Davis allowed Tennessee to make an in-home visit a couple of nights ago. “They’re trying to get me to change my mind. They know I’m committed but reminded me that nothing’s official until you sign the papers.”
Then there’s Clemson: The Tigers called the other day, and there’s an ever-present fear among South Carolina fans that Davis could flip to the Tigers at any moment. After all, his older brother, James Davis, was an All-ACC RB at Clemson.
Davis is scheduled to visit Clemson on Jan. 27, and his older brother has let everybody know about it, even saying Mike was a “soft” commitment to South Carolina on Twitter.
“I don’t know if I’m going to Clemson yet and please don’t pay attention to what he says,” Davis said.
Some have speculated that Davis has never really considered Clemson because he didn’t want to follow in his brother’s footsteps. “That didn’t have anything to do with me and Clemson. They just came on late with me.”
So where does everything stand with Davis? “I’m committed to South Carolina. I’m 100-percent committed. I don’t know if I’ll go on these last two visits. If I do, it will be because I told those coaches that I would. But I just don’t know right now.”
