"Practice was good. It was very intense," he noted. "We hung out afterward a little bit and mingled with the coaches and stuff like that. We had a nice time. Practice was very intense. Guys are definitely working hard."

Davis said Iowa, Pitt, Maryland and Duke are the other schools that have shown the most interest to date.
