Alabama commit is “still open” to other schools, including Mississippi State
At 6-foot-7 and 323 pounds, Raekwon Davis is as big of a prospect as you will find. And he’s also one of the quietest.
On Monday, though, the four-star defensive tackle shed some light on his concealed recruitment as players from both Alabama and Mississippi converged on Camp Shelby in Hattiesburg, Miss., for the annual Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game.
“I’m still committed but I’m still open to other schools,” Davis told a group of reporters. “I’m still looking around.”
Davis, who has been committed to Alabama for more than a calendar year, confirmed he will take an official visit to Mississippi State on Jan. 15.
The Meridian native said members of the Bulldogs staff visited him at his school and he felt the program was deserving of an official visit.
But Davis didn’t seem all that sold on Mississippi State when asked to characterize his relationship with the program.
“It’s an OK school,” Davis said of the Bulldogs. “I can’t really explain what it’s like. I’m still looking at them and I’m still interested in the school. I’m still open, like I said. But I’m still committed to Alabama.”
Davis maintained several SEC programs are still interested in his services, though he didn’t name specifics. However, he conceded he will take his decision all the way to National Signing Day. He added that he knows where he wants to go, but suggested he cannot reveal it.
“I know where I want to go, I just don’t want to say it just yet,” Davis said.
He is rated as the No. 6 player in Mississippi.
