Mark Richt and Bryan McClendon worked together in 2015 to get a commitment from wide receiver Randrecous Davis of Atlanta. Now in 2016, the two are working against each other to convince Davis to come to their new schools.

Davis (6-1, 185), who has been committed to Georgia, will switch to either the Hurricanes or the Gamecocks, his coach said Wednesday.

“Right now he’s holding to Georgia but probably will end up at Miami or South Carolina,” Mays High coach Corey Jarvis said. “No one from Georgia has been in touch. He’s really interested in South Carolina.”

Davis had an in-home visit with Richt on Tuesday night, and USC is scheduled Thursday for its in-home meeting. Davis will take an official visit to Miami this weekend and is scheduled to visit USC on Jan. 29.

This season Davis had 53 catches for 1,154 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also scored three touchdowns on returns and threw a scoring pass. He also plays cornerback.

According to 247Sports, Georgia receiver commitment Javon Wims of Hinds Community College in Mississippi will make an official visit to USC this weekend. He visited Miami last weekend.

Wims (6-4, 215) is a Jacksonville, Fla., native and was recruited by McClendon when he was at Georgia.

Last season Wims caught 47 passes for 779 yards and nine touchdowns. He played for Hal Mumme in 2013 at Belhaven University and as a freshman caught seven passes for 55 yards.
