Davis interested in SU

The Villages (Fla.) has not been known as a football power house, but this year they have one prospect that is looking to change that. That player is 6-foot-4, 225-pound linebacker Noor Davis.

As it stands right now Davis is closing in on twenty scholarship offers and one of his most recent offers came from Syracuse.

"I would say it was a few weeks ago that they offered me. It was great Syracuse is a great school and it is in a great location near my family. It is a program that has had a great history with players as well as great academics."

Right now the Sunshine State prospect does not know too much about Syracuse, but there are two items that stick out.

"It is a school with great tradition and the coaches have been great when I have had a chance to speak with them on the phone. They are definitely a great school and they are in consideration," Davis said. "I talked with Coach Brumbaugh, Coach Shafer, and Coach Conley. I have gotten along with them well. They are all great people and we talk about how well I could help the school. They are a school I will definitely consider."

Syracuse is looking for Davis to play outside linebacker and he talked about what he thinks division one coaches like about his game.

"They are looking for me as an outside linebacker. I am versatile, my athleticism, I am big, tall, I'm long, and I am rangy. I can cover a lot of ground and in doing that I can stop the run, rush the passer, and cover the pass."

A visit for Davis has not been set up yet, but because he does have family up north there is a solid chance he will look to make a trip to New York when he visits family.

"Hopefully I can visit. Hopefully next time I head up there to visit family we can make a trip up to Syracuse. We will see."

Last season Davis stepped his game up to open the eyes of division one recruiters and as a senior he will look to improve on those numbers. If he is able to top his junior number he would be looking at one of the top defensive seasons in the country.

"Last season I had 101 tackles, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, five pass break ups, two touchdowns, and a safety."

There is no hurry for Davis to make a choice as he is looking to take his time so he makes the right decision for himself.

"I plan on waiting this process out, so that I can make the best decision for myself."
