Deep Run High School put together a great class of prospect in the Class of 2009 with players like…
Busy Month For Davis
"My buddy Antone Exum told me that once the first one comes in it kind of starts a spark and they all start rolling in." Exum signed with Virginia Tech in December. Conner then talked about the last month or so. "Duke was first to offer back in the middle of January. Virginia verbally offered about a week after Duke but they gave it to me in writing at their junior day. Virginia Tech offered about a week after that. I went up to BC's (Boston College) junior day and I think they offered on January 31st. West Virginia gave me an offer the first week in February. The most recent was Maryland and they just offered me on Thursday."
Davis is a stout 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds and is being recruited to play offensive tackle at the next level.
This past fall he visited five schools: Ohio State, Boston College, Virginia, Wake Forest, and Maryland. However Davis says he does not have any big time favorites.
"I really don't have a top three or anything like that. So many schools are offering all of the sudden and it's been crazy. I just want to learn more and visit as many schools as I can; it really is a great experience. I just like seeing how different all the schools are and all the different crazy traditions they all have."
Deep Run High School in Glen Allen, Virginia was stacked with talent this past season, and Davis is the next big time recruit to come from the program. Georgia landed four-star cornerback Jordan Love. Versatile athlete Antone Exum committed to Virginia Tech and could get a shot at backing up Tyrod Taylor, and three-star defensive end Jake Snyder will be heading to Virginia next fall. Needless to say Deep Run loves their football, and Davis jokes about the pressure from friends and classmates.
"It is pretty funny actually, and I hear it from everybody. Our school is pretty much divided right down the middle between the two Virginia schools. I have Tech fans telling me that I should go there and I have UVA fans telling me I should go there. It's like the battle that never ends. I grew up going to Virginia games as a kid so I guess in the past I would say I'm a Cav, but ever since the recruiting has started I try to put that past history aside. I can honestly say that I like both Virginia and Virginia Tech equally because they are both my state schools. I mean Jake is going to UVA and Antone is going to Tech so everyone always brings that up. No matter what I say somebody always disagrees and that is what makes the rivalry so much fun."
Davis is looking forward to attending a junior day at Virginia Tech on Saturday. "I am waiting until I learn more about all the schools, and going to Tech on Saturday. Hopefully after that I will start to get a better idea. I know a few of the Fork Union Military kids who are going too, it should be great."
