Clemson verbal commitment Cortez Davis is one of the top defensive backs in the Southeast. Davis has been committed to the Tigers and the Noles during his recruitment. Top programs continue to come after the Tiger commit.
Cortez helped Mainland High to a big victory Friday night.
“We played Deltona last week. We had a good game and won 43-0. I played just the first half because it was a blowout,” said Davis.
Next week Cortez will play for a championship.
“This week we play for the district championship. Either way we are in the playoffs. We have a good chance to go all the way,” said Davis.
Marlin Lane has given the team a big lift since returning from his injury.
“Marlin is playing real good. We are much better now. It is good to have him back,” said Davis.
Cortez will be back in Death Valley for the South Carolina game, along with Marlin.
“We are coming up for the South Carolina game. I can’t wait to see that one,” said Davis.
The Florida standout watched the Tigers loss to Boston College on television.
“I watched it. It was a good game, but we came up short,” said Davis.
The Clemson staff has told Cortez they expect him to play as a true freshman.
“I hope I can come in and help out right away. Coach told me he would pressure me to start my freshman year,” said Davis.
Many of the top programs in the nation continue to recruit the star defensive back.
“I am still hearing from other schools. I tell them I am firm with Clemson,” said Davis.
How firm is Cortez with the Tigers?
“I am 100 percent,” replied Davis.
Cortez will take his official visit to Clemson in January. Right now that is the only visit he plans to take.
“I am coming up for their banquet weekend for my official,” said Davis.
