TODAY’S FEATURED PROSPECT: Rian Davis
*All rankings are from 247Sports latest rankings*
Rian “Trouble” Davis is a four-star outside linebacker from Apopka, Florida. He’s 6-2.5 233 pounds. According to the latest 247Sports Composite rankings, he ranks as the No. 170 overall player, the No. 11 OLB and the No. 25 prospect in FL. Davis holds 40 offers with the latest coming from LSU on May 16. Georgia offered on March 3. He visited Georgia last week for the second time this spring last week and expects to visit Louisville next week. Davis was in Athens back on March 4 too. On May 3, he released a top 12 and tells me he’s releasing a top 4 on June 11. His top 12 included Georgia, Houston, Louisville, Oregon, Texas, Clemson, Arizona State, Alabama, Miami, Ohio State, Indiana and NC State.
Davis is a big-time prospect that Georgia needs to grab a hold of if possible. He plans on committing by the end of the summer, and it’ll be interesting whether or not Georgia did enough last week to get him.
