1. Georgia

Georgia has the edge for Davis and it is getting him on campus again next weekend and then for an official visit on June 14. Look for the Bulldogs to try to extend their lead when he’s back in Athens this month.

Davis has really been excited about the way Georgia has developed defensive linemen over the last few years and his relationship with defensive line coach Tray Scott has been a driving force behind his interest. Former teammate Jamaal Jarrett has also been helping Georgia in its pursuit of Davis.

2. Clemson

Clemson is not going away in Davis’s recruitment. The Tigers will host Davis this weekend and hope to regain some momentum after getting a chance to impress him. Clemson also has Davis scheduled for an official visit on May 31.

Clemson’s history of producing outstanding defensive line talent is not lost on Davis and Clemson’s relative proximity to his home is also working in its favor. It will be interesting to hear how his relationships with defensive line coaches Nick Eason and Mike Rumph have progressed after his trip this weekend.

3. North Carolina

North Carolina has already hosted Davis this year and it is hoping to impress him again when he takes his official visit on June 7. North Carolina desperately needs a big-time playmaker such as Davis on the defensive line and it is hoping the opportunity in Chapel Hill is enough to keep him from leaving the state.

4. Tennessee

Tennessee has always done a good job recruiting the state of North Carolina and it has circled Davis in the 2025 class. The Volunteers are hoping to reload on the defensive line and Davis is a prime target. His skill set is a good fit for their scheme and he’s enjoyed getting to know the coaches.

It’ll be interesting to see when his next trip will be but he’ll likely be back in Knoxville before announcing a commitment.
