Cortez Davis, one of the top defensive backs in the South, heads to Alabama this weekend for a special 7-on-7 tournament.

“I am heading over to Alabama for the Top Gun 7-on-7 tournament,” said Davis.

Later this month the Florida standout will be back in Alabama with his teammates.

“I am going to Alabama again with Mainland for a 7-on-7 on July 14. Then we have some 7-on-7 tournaments around here,” said Davis.
Cortez, Marlin and Mainland had planned to visit Florida State in June for a 7-on-7, but ran into some travel problems.

“We weren’t able to make it. At first we took the wrong route and then a bird hit our bus and crushed the windshield so we didn’t get there,” said Davis.

The Mainland standout can’t wait to hit the field for one more season.

“I am looking forward to it. It is my last year so I want to go out and show everyone what I have,” said Davis.

Teammate Marlin Lane is doing well with his rehab.

“Marlin is looking better,” said Davis.

The one time Clemson commitment switched his commitment to Florida State this spring. Where does he stand with his commitment today?

“I am still looking around. I still have my options open,” replied Davis.

Coach Rumph continues to work hard to convince Cortez to switch back to the Tigers. Another visit to Clemson could come later this summer.

“I am trying to go up when Marlin goes,” said Davis.

The top defensive back would like to enroll early, but has some work to do for that to be possible.

“I am trying to get everything done so I can enroll early, but it is hard. I am taking summer classes to see if I can be ready,” said Davis.
