4-Star Davis Discusses Official Visits
"I'm going to visit Texas on December 9th," said Torshiro Davis, the senior from Woodlawn-Shreveport. "They have their team banquet that weekend, and the coaches and players will be honored. It will be a good time for my mom to meet other parents." Davis will participate in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, January 7 of next year, and he plans to take two more official visits on the following weekends. "I'm visiting Alabama the week after the Army game and LSU the week after that," said Davis, who is ranked as the No. 7 outside linebacker prospect in the nation (he's equally adept at defensive end). "I'm supposed to visit Oklahoma in December - waiting to hear back from them about that." What does Davis think about this week's LSU at Alabama affair? "It should be, by far, the best game of the season. It's a hard one to predict," he said. "LSU has the best secondary in the nation but is weak at linebacker. Alabama always has first round draft picks at linebacker." A few weeks ago, Davis attended LSU's rout of Florida. "LSU disrespected Florida with that (Tim) Tebow dunk play and I loved it," laughed Davis in reference to Jordan Jefferson's "jump pass" for a touchdown against the Gators. When Tebow was at Florida, he would often leap into the air near the goal-line and hurl a toss into the end zone. Davis plays the final game of his high school career tomorrow night when Woodlawn takes on Huntington at Lee Hedges Stadium. "It's my last game and I want to go out with a W," said Davis. "The chances are high for us to win. I believe we've had a chance to win every game, but we just weren't able to come together. "I have 15 or 16 sacks this year. I had 5 1/2 against Northwood and actually got to sit out the fourth quarter. That was the first time we've beaten them in years."
