Kyle Davis was in Athens over the weekend (good gracious who wasn’t) and, while he enjoyed himself, he is no longer willing to say much about what happens on his visits, or what his plans are for October 23 (the day he plans to announce) because, according to Davis, the media has a tendency to get it twisted where his intentions are concerned.
Davis declined to give many details, referencing recent interviews gone awry with other media outlets where “they switch my words up so much.”
“It was straight,” Davis said of his time in Athens, Ga. “I love the rain, and the fact that my mom was there. I always like being around my mom.” (Kipp Adams, Dawgs247)
Davis has done his best to remain both coy and mysterious throughout his recruitment. He’s been so coy, in fact, that I no longer have any feel for where he’ll announce-especially since he has every intention of continuing to take visits after he announces.
Wherever he does decide to go, he’ll do well I’m sure.
Georgia could certainly use his services. Their only reliable target is Malcolm Mitchell and, with Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey both showing a propensity towards being inconsistent, he’s hardly made the impact he would have hoped by this point in the season.
That said, Davis is also looking at Auburn and Tennessee. Auburn recently gave its star receiver, Duke Williams, the boot so that has to look attractive to Davis as well.
We’ll see what happens, but I hope Davis’s close bond with the incoming Jacob Eason—who has marked both Davis and Demetris Robertson as must-haves to join him in Georgia’s 2016 class—will be enough of a difference maker to lead Davis into a red and black uniform next season.
