Florida DB heading to T-Town

Tallahassee (FL) Godby cornerback T.J. Davis has seen his stock rise after an impressive round of performances at summer camps and 7-on-7 events. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound junior has been impressive early this season racking up 24 tackles and two interceptions through four games, despite the fact that his Godby team has struggled as a whole.

"Overall my team has had a pretty rough start," Davis said. "We've had a lot of correctable mental errors and we've come close in a few games but we've got to get past some of those errors and stop beating ourselves. I want to try and step up and become a good example and a leader for the team."

This weekend, Davis will take another big step in the recruiting process by making his first visit to a college game this season, and the game he'll be attending not only features two of the top teams in the nation but also two teams that are heavily involved with the star junior prospect.

"I'm going to the Alabama-Florida game this weekend and I'm really excited because it's my first college game visit of the season. I've been in touch with both schools and they both have told me they are really interested. Alabama has actually said they will be sending me an offer in the mail soon."

"I'm excited to see what the atmosphere is going to be like at Alabama but I already know I really like the way things are run there inside the program. I got a change to be up there for one of the camps this summer and I was really impressed with the way the coaches work with players. They really seem to know how to motivate you and get the best out of you."

Davis said that despite growing up in the shadow of Florida State University, he holds no particular personal history as a fan of any one school.

"Growing up, my mom was a Florida fan and my dad was a Florida State fan and I never really picked a side. So as far as that goes, I'm not really a big fan of any one school heading into this process. I'm going to be open to everyone and look for the program that fits me the best."

After this weekend's game, Davis doesn't have any specific game visits schedules but has a few more destinations in mind.

"I'm going to really try to get to an Ohio State game this season and I'd also like to go to a game at Ole Miss as well. I'll also probably go to the Florida-Florida State game since it's here in Tallahassee this year. I want to try and take in as much as I can this year just so I can get an early impression and know a little more about each school once recruiting really starts getting serious for me next year."
