Davis Calls UVa Offer "Unexpected"

Javaris Davis

Jacksonville (Fla.) Ed White two-way standout Javaris Davis received a Virginia offer last week, an offer he called "unexpected." Davis talks about Virginia with Scout.com.

With well over 30 offers, Javaris Davis added one more to the pile, Virginia.

"It was unexpected," said the Jacksonville (Fla.) Ed White two-way standout. "I just know they have a great academic program."

The 5-foot-10, 173 pounder is now trying to learn more about the Cavaliers and his recruiting coordinator, UVa assistant Scott Wachenheim.

"From the time we talk a little he seems very cool. He has a laid back, great personality.

Davis has the ability to make big play on both sides of the ball. As a junior he played both running back and defensive backs. At running back he finished with 976 yards and 12 touchdowns on 89 carries, while on the other side he tallied 39 tackles, 15 pass break ups and three interceptions.

These numbers and his ability has attracted from across the country. The Florida native now has offers from Duke, Clemson, Louisville, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Syracuse, UCF, West Virginia and Wisconsin to name a few.

Many schools are recruiting Davis as an athlete, including the Wahoos. I love both, so I haven't decided yet (which position I like more), but I will soon."

Although Davis named Georgia Tech and Clemson as his two leaders back in September, with the new interest in his recruitment, the athlete is looking at every school equally.

"I don't have any at the moment. All my options are open now."

Davis has already visited Georgia Tech, Clemson, UNC, Miami, Florida, UCF and USF, but says he will try to hit up ten more schools before he makes his decision.

"I'm not sure (who I am visiting yet)," he said. "I'm making me decision before my first regular season game in August."

Davis is looking for a couple things, however, before he makes his decision official.

"How the coaching staff is and how they treat me and my mom," he explained. "The depth chart, the education program and a good sports medicine department. I want to be a physical therapist."

For now he is preparing for his senior season at Edward White and making sure he continues be a well-rounded athlete.

"I'm working on my craft and technique more at the DB position, and I am just getting bigger, faster and stronger."
