Davis changing up favorites

It was West Virginia and Wake Forest in the top two spots for Marcus Davis, but now the 2013 athlete is mixing it up. Originally, a WVU visit was the only thing standing between him and a decision. Now, the Mountaineers may not even host the American Heritage (Delray Beach, FL) standout. Cincinnati and Vanderbilt are back in the picture with a vengeance. Get the latest right here.

Marcus Davis has a new top three: Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, and Cincinnati. It seems West Virginia is on the outside looking in with this one, but Davis has not completely ruled it out either. Last week, Vanderbilt made the jump back in after Defensive Line Coach Sean Spencer visited Davis at school.

"I hadn't talked to Vanderbilt in a long time until they came by. They were in my top three before, they kind of faded away, but then when they came back by, we renewed our bond," he said.

"(Coach Spencer) just told me they still want me the same way and he wants to definitely get me up on an official visit."

Davis hopes to take an official visit to Vanderbilt sometime in January, but nothing is set up yet.

"It's a great school for academics. I feel like wherever I go, I'm going to work hard. As long as I get a fair shot to play, I'm willing to go wherever. I feel like those coaches are going to give me a fair shot to compete for my job," he said.

The Commodores aren't the only ones to get back on Davis' radar with a visit. Cincinnati also visited him at school last week and he hopes to take an official there sometime in January as well.

"(I'll be looking to see) the opportunity of me going up there and contributing early, just the opportunity that I'd have there. I'm pretty excited about getting up there and seeing how campus life is," he said.

Like Vanderbilt, Davis liked Cincinnati early but says it had kind of faded out of his mind because he hadn't talked to coaches much. That's been changing lately.

Wake Forest is still as much in the picture as ever before, and West Virginia isn't totally out. Davis plans to take his visits and make a decision after that. He'll be looking for the place he feels most comfortable and sees an opportunity to compete for a spot.
