GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Palm Beach Gardens (Fla.) head coach Chris Davis is no stranger to coaching top offensive linemen.
Davis was a wide receivers coach at Lakeland (Fla.) High School from 2005-2008 and had a to chance to work with Maurkice and Mike Pouncey, who eventually became first-round NFL draft picks by Pittsburgh and Miami, respectively. Davis thinks his star lineman, Avery Young, should be mentioned in the same conversation as the Pouncey twins.
"The energy he brings to the team," Davis said, "how he makes everyone better around him -- he's the best player I've ever coached. He's in the same category as the Pouncey twins."
Four-star offensive tackle Avery Young calls his official visit to Florida "perfect." He's one of the Gators' top targets.
