LB Jonathan Davis (5-9 205) of Tucker, GA took in the USC-LSU game Saturday with his father and left with a favorable opinion of the Gamecocks. "I love the place," Davis said. "I love the atmosphere. They have great fans, great coaches. I met coach Spurrier in person for the first time. I met Emmanuel Cook and Captain Munnerlyn. One of my friends goes there, Kenneth Miles. I just loved the place. It's a great place for football."
Davis also got the chance to talk with recruiter Ron Cooper and got a clearer picture of how he's viewed by the Gamecock coaches. "We talked for about 15 minutes and he showed me around the lockerroom and where the new weight room is going to be," Davis said. "They want me to play the same position as Emmanuel Cook. I was already high on South Carolina, and as of Saturday, it was like, I can't wait to get to my official visit."
Davis also is looking at Georgia Tech, UAB, Central Florida and Boston College for official visits. He has not set any dates. He does not claim a favorite.
