Davis turning the page

Charles Davis and Neptune, N.J., are now finished with their 2009 campaign, as they came up short in a playoff game on Friday night. Now the talented junior will turn his attention to the recruiting process.

The 5-foot-11, 191-pound back with an offer from Rutgers couldn't help but voice his disappointment with the outcome of the game in his most recent interview with Rivals.com, but he acknowledged that he would have to try and move forward.

"We lost last night and it wasn't good at all," Davis explained. "We just came up short, 17-6. For some strange reason I didn't touch the ball at all.

"The coach just wasn't calling my plays. I had surgery on my wrist a few weeks ago and I came back after being out for about six days. I missed one game, and then the next game I got eight carries. Last week in our playoff game I had six carries for 111 yards and two touchdowns. This playoff game the coach decided he wanted to go in a different direction and I guess it didn't work out.

"It was pretty bad, but I'm trying to take it the best way I can. I've got another year left."

With his season over, Davis will now take this opportunity to focus on academics as well as recruiting. He plans on taking at least a couple of visits in the next few weeks.

"I'd like to go down to Maryland and Virginia," he said. "I spoke to Maryland about three weeks ago, and they came to visit the school. They just want me to go down a visit. I've talked to Virginia a couple of times as well.

"Alabama has been sending me a lot of stuff lately. I've been getting a few things from Nebraska, too. That's pretty much it. Mostly it's schools inviting me to games."
