Mike Davis Decommits From Florida

Mike Davis is no longer committed to Florida.

The running back from Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain, Ga., told MrSEC he doesn’t plan to consider the Gators as he attempts to make his college decision.

Davis said he had yet to inform Florida’s coaches of his decision but planned to do so on Sunday night. He declined to give a reason for falling out of favor with Florida’s coaching staff.

“It was just a misunderstanding with something that happened,” Davis said.

Davis took an official visit to Tennessee this weekend. The Vols became an intriguing option to Davis in large part because of their need for immediate help at running back.

“That factors in a lot in what college I go to,” said Davis, who was hosted on his trip by UT freshman linebacker Curt Maggitt.

Davis said he also plans to take official visits to Alabama, South Carolina, Florida State and Miami.

Davis, who said he plans to make his final decision on National Signing Day on Feb. 1, said Florida State’s coaching staff has recruited him the hardest.

“The coaches check on me every day,” he said. “They’re just constantly after me.”

Davis could have his teammates after him to choose South Carolina or Miami.

Stephenson defensive back Kyle Fleetwood and defensive tackle Carlos Hood are committed to South Carolina. Linebacker Raphael Kirby has given his pledge to Miami.

South Carolina Receives Commitment From Defensive End

Defensive end Darius English from McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Ga., has committed to South Carolina.

English chose the Gamecocks over offers from Auburn, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, North Carolina and others. He gave his commitment to South Carolina after visiting Columbia on Saturday.

“When I finished the tour and everything, I told coach (G.A.) Mangus that South Carolina is where I want to be,” English told “He was excited. He said that I was the first defensive end commit for them.”

That’s true. South Carolina has commitments from four other defensive prospects: linebacker T.J. Holloman, defensive tackle Carlos Hood and defensive backs Kyle Fleetwood and Rico McWilliams.

South Carolina has eight commitments for the class of 2012.

Georgia DT Picks Carolina Over Auburn

Georgia defensive tackle prospect Carlos Hood committed to sign with South Carolina yesterday.  In March, Hood tried to commit to Auburn, but the Tigers wanted to re-evaluate him at the team’s prospect camp later this spring.

“I was talking it over with my mother and decided to go ahead and commit to South Carolina.  They won the SEC East last year, and they have a good defense almost every year.  They run a 4-3 that is a good fit for me.  South Carolina is not far from home, so my friends and family will get to see me play.  I like South Carolina, and South Carolina likes me.  There was no reason to wait any longer.”

We’ll see if Auburn tries to get back involved with Hood.  And if Hood will listen if they do.
