Davis enjoys spotlight



Lincoln (Tallahassee, Fla.) wide receiver Reggie Davis knows all about being in the spotlight.

Davis is a highly-ranked receiver, plays for a big-time program, with offers from some of the best programs in the country, and he even plays opposite of another Rivals250 receiver in teammate Taj Williams.

In his estimation, it is all part of one big package.

"It is great to be at a school that is well known and all," said Davis. "It also feels good to play with great players and to be getting attention from great schools. It is all just part of it and it helps me want to be better."

Earlier this month, Davis named Georgia as a school that stood out in his recruitment in an interview with Rivals' Recruiting Analyst Chris Nee, and according to the four star recruit, his reasons for liking the Bulldogs are quite specific.

"I like them because they throw the ball a lot," said Davis. "They get the ball to their receivers, and they have some guys graduating and some seniors, so they need receivers and I like that."

Another reason for the Rivals250 prospects interest in the Bulldogs stems from his relationship with his primary recruiter, Georgia tight ends coach John Lilly.

"Coach Lilly is a cool guy," said Davis. "He is a good dude and really laid back. He is easy to talk to."

While he has made it clear that he has serious interest in the Georgia program, the Tallahassee native is hesitant to name a leader at this point.

"I don't really have a leader or a school that stands out above the rest," said Davis. "I know I just have to look at all of the schools and listen to what they all have to say. I have to make sure that schools aren't just telling me the same thing they are telling the other recruits and all."

Davis admits that he doesn't know who is recruiting him the hardest at this point, but he does feel that a number of schools are giving serious efforts to land him on their commitment list.

"I think they are all recruiting me about the same right now," he said. "I don't think any school really stands out as recruiting me harder than another. They are just all recruiting me hard."

With summer quickly approaching, the Sunshine State playmaker isn't quite sure where he is headed, but he has his summer planned out in regards to becoming a better player before his senior season.

"I will be working out a lot and getting ready four our seven-on-seven tournaments," said Davis. "We will be working hard this summer trying to get better. I don't know if I will visit anywhere really. I have some plans but nothing final yet."
