TE Jordan Davis gaining interest

3/22/2012

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Thomson (Ga.) tight end Jordan Davis might not be a household name right now, but he has seen his stock rise over the last several weeks.

On Wednesday, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound athlete spoke with Florida head coach Will Muschamp.

"It went good," Davis said. "I called coach [Derek] Lewis and he told me to call him again a little later so that he could put me on the phone with him [Muschamp]. So I called back later, he put me on the phone with him and he told me they were looking for some good tight ends. So they want me to get down there, so the can sit down and talk to me and see if they want to offer me."

Davis, whose only offer is from Louisville, said Florida, Georgia, Auburn, Alabama and Duke have all shown interest. Davis said the interest with he and Florida is mutual.

"They have a pro-style offense," Davis said of Florida. "They like to get the ball to their tight ends and they use a lot of tight ends in their offense. That's the type of offense I like. I'm trying to get down there as soon as possible, which will probably be the first week of our spring break around April 1st or somewhere around there."

In addition to Florida, Davis said he is planning to visit Georgia and Alabama over the spring.

"Alabama, Georgia and Florida would be my top three teams," he said. "But I'm still pretty open right now, though. I'm from Huntsville (Ala.), and Alabama is the team I grew up rooting for. Georgia is where I started getting looks from first, and they talk to me a lot."
