Custis talks official

Over the weekend three-star defensive end Davon Custis took an official visit to Boston College and came away very impressed with the experience. He spoke with EagleAction.com and recapped the trip. He also talked about where the recruiting process stands now.

The 6-foot-5, 220-pound lineman from Columbus (Ohio) DeSales holds offers from Boston College, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan State, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Stanford and Cincinnati.

Boston College was already in a good position with Custis before this past weekend, but they may be in an even better spot right now.

"I had a really good time up there," Custis said. "The team reminds me of a big family. That was the impression I got. Basically, Will Thompson showed me around and it was really enjoyable.

"I talked to the defensive line coach and the head coach, as well as the athletic director and the academic director. That was all really good, too.

"Boston College has pretty much everything. They're a good football team and I really like the campus life. The business program is top-notch and it's a great location being right there at Boston. I love the people there."

While that all sounds great, the Eagles still have some competition for Custis.

"I'd say Boston College is still the leader but Northwestern is right behind them. Those are probably the two schools I'll end up narrowing it down to. I like the same things about Northwestern that I like about BC.

"Last week I got calls from BC, Northwestern, Iowa, Stanford, West Virginia, NC State, Michigan, Cincinnati, Purdue and Indiana. I think that's about it.

"I've pretty much narrowed it down to Boston College, Northwestern, Indiana, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Stanford, but I know I can only take five official visits.

"Basically I'm still leaning towards Boston College but I'll have to wait and see what happens."

Custis plans on announcing his decision around Christmas. Thus far he has led his team to a 3-0 record. On the season he has recorded one sack and is averaging six tackles per game, despite consistently facing double and triple teams.
