“It was a good trip and I enjoyed my time there,” Davis told 247Sports.com. “The coaches treated me great and I really enjoyed what they did for me.”

Davis maintains he’s still committed to Stanford. But where he will sign is still unknown.

“I’m not sure yet what the future will be but as of right now, I am solid with Stanford,” he said.

Tide, Tigers In Running For Deon Bush

Defensive back Deon Bush from Miami Columbus High School has his recruiting focused on three schools: Alabama, Auburn and Miami.

Bush told 247Sports.com he doesn’t have a leader among his top three.

“They’re all even right now,” he told the website. “I have no clue right now. I’m still not sure.”

Bush has already taken official visits to Alabama and Auburn along with Purdue. He plans to visit Miami in December and is considering a visit to LSU or Southern California.

Bush might also take an unofficial visit to Auburn when the Tigers host Alabama. His decision could wait until Jan. 7 at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.

“It might last until then but I’m not sure yet,” he told 247Sports.

Vanderbilt Continues Its Splash In Recruiting

Brian Kimbrow helped continue the trend of Vanderbilt’s 2012 recruiting class when he committed to the Commodores on Friday.

The reason I made that decision is I like to be different,” the Memphis, Tenn., tailback said during an announcement ceremony in Nashville, according to 247Sports.com. “I like a challenge. I don’t want anything given to me. It’s close to home and it felt like home and it gave me an opportunity to be successful after football.”

And Kimbrow should give Vanderbilt a better chance of being successful at football. He’s considered the state’s top prospect and the nation’s third-best all-purpose running back by 247Sports.

Kimbrow joins a recruiting class that is creating buzz around the country. Along with Kimbrow, Vanderbilt received commitments from defensive end Caleb Azubike and wide receiver Cory Batey on Friday. The Commodores have 11 commitments for the class of 2012.

First-year Vanderbilt coach James Franklin has been busy selling recruits on the idea they can get a quality education while also helping Vanderbilt change its luck on the football field.

“We can do something special,” Kimbrow told SI.com. “That’s something I’m interested in.”

Schools like Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Notre Dame and Southern California were interested in Kimbrow. Oh yeah, Tennessee was, too. Kimbrow tried on a Vols hat before placing it down on the table during the ceremony, which was carried live on WGFX radio in Nashville.

“Nah, it didn’t fit,” Kimbrow said, according to SI. “It’s Vandy.”

And there’s the difference Franklin has made for Vanderbilt. UT isn’t used to losing in-state prospects to the other SEC team in the state. Franklin is trying to make it a trend and he’s challenging prospects to join him.

“If you feel that you are the best and the brightest, come prove it with me week in and week out,” Franklin told SI.com on Wednesday. “If you’re afraid of competition, then you’d better not be playing major division football, and you’d better not be considering the SEC.”

Where Vanderbilt’s class will finish among SEC teams remains to be seen. Remember, prospects can’t sign with schools for another seven months. Still, the most recent class rankings published by ESPN.com places Vanderbilt at No. 24 in the nation.

How will prospects view Vanderbilt if the Commodores struggle in Franklin’s first season on the field? We’ll see, but these prospects choosing the Commodores have already seen the struggle in the past.

“I’ve had a chance to think about this for two years now,” Kimbrow told SI. “I’ve been recruited since 10th grade. … This is where I feel comfortable. This is where I want to go.”

And other top prospects in the Southeast appear ready to join him.

Lee’s Brother Doesn’t Expect A Change Of Heart

Plenty of schools will continue to recruit Dillon Lee despite his commitment to Alabama.

The linebacker from Buford (Ga.) High School announced on Monday his commitment to Alabama over offers from Georgia, Florida State and Southern California.

Lee’s older brother, Georgia sophomore offensive lineman Dallas Lee, said he expects other schools to keep calling Dillon trying to change his mind.

“People don’t think an early commitment is really where they are going (to sign),” Dallas Lee said. “But I didn’t change my mind after committing early, and I don’t see (Dillon) changing his. He put a lot of thought into it. He’s pretty solid on Alabama.”

Fans in Georgia were hopeful Dillon Lee would be solid to Georgia after the Bulldogs offered him a scholarship on May 2. The offer just wasn’t in time.

“I was very serious about Georgia,” Lee said. “My brother plays there. You know, they just came in too late. They came in real late.”

Dillon Lee Set To Announce Choice

Linebacker Dillon Lee from Buford (Ga.) High School will announce his college choice on Monday night at 6:30 eastern time.

Lee said last week that he’s considering Alabama, Georgia, Florida State and Southern California. According to Shane Youngblood of 247Sports.com, it appears to be a two-team race between Alabama and Florida State.

“Alabama is cautiously optimistic heading into the decision,” Youngblood wrote, “but there is no doubt FSU has picked up some of the late momentum. At this point, this is truly a 50/50 coin flip as to where Lee commits.”

Sources told Youngblood that Lee doesn’t appear to be considering Georgia, “although (the Bulldogs) will likely keep pursuing the four-star defender until Signing Day.”

Lee’s older brother, Dallas Lee, is a sophomore offensive lineman for Georgia.

Georgia Linebacker Set To Announce Decision

Linebacker Dillon Lee from Buford (Ga.) High School plans to announce his college decision on Monday.

Lee is considering Alabama, Georgia, Florida State and Southern California.

Lee’s older brother, Dallas Lee, is an offensive lineman at Georgia. That has led many to believe the Bulldogs have an advantage in Lee’s recruitment.

“My whole family is Georgia fans, and I’ve been going to games there my whole life,” Lee told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I know a lot about them, and I’ve been trying to get to know the new linebackers coach since he was hired.”

Georgia is the most recent school to offer a scholarship to Lee, who has nearly 20 offers. Lee told the AJC he wasn’t offended by the AJC.

Lee is ranked the No. 232 prospect in nation by Rivals.com.
