Another talent at Norcross is emerging
A busy summer is starting to pay dividends for Norcross (Ga.) High School wide receiver Geremy Davis. The 6-foot-2, 192-pounder recently was offered by Jacksonville State to add to offers already from the likes of Chattanooga and ULM. The effort he put in over the summer also has several other schools tracking his progress.
Along with camps at the NUC Ultimate 100 in Atlanta and the Tennessee prospect camp early in the summer, Davis also attended Auburn and Troy and hopes to have sparked some interest.
"I got to see some schools and see what kind of offense they run and hopefully I picked up some interest from schools that weren't as highly recruiting me," Davis said.
Among the schools that have been showing some added interest have been Central Florida, Middle Tennessee State, Central Michigan and recently Indiana.
"Indiana, I got an email from them saying that they were sending all of my mail to the wrong place so I'm about to start getting a lot of mail from them," he said.
While Davis is not ready to name any favorites or any top five as he waits fore more options to emerge, he does know the factors he is looking for in a program.
"Of course education is important," he said. "Everyone wants to get a nice degree because whatever college you go to that's going to be your future. I play wide receiver so of course I'd like to go to a spread offense so that's what I'm going to look to and of course coaching style, facilities and also tradition, a school that has a nice past and stuff like that."
Davis' Norcross program has produced a load of talented skill players over the past few seasons like D.J. Adams, Prince Kent and Brice Butler. This year, Davis is ready to emerge as the new offensive threat. With one game in the books, it looks as though he is well on his way.
"We had our first game last weekend," he said. "We came up short in over time but I managed to play pretty good. I had six catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns. We've got a young team. We've got a young quarterback but he did pretty good in that first game and I feel like after we get a few games in we can be the team we're supposed to be."
