Ben Davis, the nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker, will now be in Tuscaloosa, Ala., this weekend for an official visit instead of next weekend after meeting with Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt Monday morning.
This weekend is shaping up to be one of Alabama’s biggest recruiting weekends in recent history, and I’m sure by no coincidence. The Crimson Tide scheduled their national championship parade smack dab in the middle of a weekend where around 10 five-star prospects will be roaming around. Some of the notable recruits that SEC Country has confirmed will be there include: the nation’s No. 1 outside linebacker, Lyndell Wilson; nation’s No. 1 athlete, Mecole Hardman, Jr.; nation’s No. 1 wide receiver, Demetris Robertson; nation’s No. 1 junior college player, Jonathan Kongbo; and the nation’s No. 2 outside linebacker, Mique Juarez.
Because of Davis’ change, Auburn will now have the last official visit before he announces his decision on National Signing Day.
The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder recently told DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell that Georgia still leads for his services, but only by a “half-yard.”
Davis, who is the son of Alabama’s all-time leading tackler, Wayne Davis, is projected by 100 percent of recruiting analysts to choose Alabama, according to his 247Sports Crystal Ball.
