Davis narrowing his focus

One of the top uncommitted defensive tackles prospects in the nation for the class of 2010 is Jerome Davis if Buford High School in Georgia. Michigan State is very interested in the 6-foot-2, 255-pound prospect and SpartanMag.com recently caught up with him.

Michigan State is still looking to address the defensive tackle position for the class of 2010 and Davis is one of a few select recruits the staff has identified as a high-caliber prospect.

Davis updated Spartanmag.com on his schedule for official visits

"I have already been to West Virginia and I will be visiting South Carolina, Michigan State and Mississippi State. I also just got called by Miami and they want to come take a look at me, so I am going to leave a visit open to see what happens there."

So where do the Spartan rate on his list

"I like really Michigan Stat ea lot. I speak with Coach Wearne often. I would probably commit to them, but I want to take my visits and see what all the schools are like, but Michigan State seems like a great place."

Davis was not sure about what schools he will be at each specific week, he does know that he will have a busy month, but one he is looking forward to. Davis indicated that he will travel with his family to East Lansing and he is anxious to learn more about the school, the academics and the overall football program.

Spartanmag.com will be sure to follow-up with Davis after the Holiday season. The next few weeks should allow him to rest up and not have to worry about recruiting as coaches are not allowed to call or visit during this time period.

Davis is rated a 3-star recruit at the 63rd best defensive tackle prospect in the nation for the class of 2010.

Commitment Update:

Spartanmag.com also was able to touch base with 4-star safety commitment Isaiah Lewis of Indiana. Lewis injured his knee toward the end of his season and had to have surgery. We asked him how things are progressing

"My knee is doing fine, he said. I am recovering fast and right now I am working on getting full motion back and strengthening it. They have said it will be stronger than the other when I am done."

As far as his official visit to Michigan State, Lewis indicated that he will be back in East Lansing the weekend of the 22nd of January.

While the knee injury certainly makes the chance of Lewis not red-shirting a long-shot, don't count it out. Lewis is well aware that Spartan RB Jason Ringer suffered the same injury his senior year and was back in time to rush for 817-yards the next fall.
