St. Petersburg Lakewood wide receiver Ryan Davis visited Florida Thursday, his second trip to the school this month.

Davis checked out UF in early August with five-stars George Campbell, Byron Cowart and CeCe Jefferson.

This time Davis came to Florida with his father and Donterio Fowler, the younger brother of Gators defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. The three of them are cousins and close friends.

“We came to see Dante, but this visit was really for my dad,” Davis said. “He wanted to see the school and everything it has to offer. He really liked it and thinks it’s a good place for me.”

The 5-foot-10, 167-pounder watched Florida’s practice Thursday and came away impressed with new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper.

“The new offense is way better,” he said. “It’s a lot more explosive. It’s a perfect fit for me and my position (slot receiver). I feel like they’re going to be better this year.”

Davis was going to make his commitment in October but may now decide after the second game (Aug. 29) of his senior season. He expects Campbell and Cowart, who are also deciding sooner than planned, to announce before him.

Davis will name final finalists soon, and Florida will make the cut along with Florida State and Maryland.

“I love the coaches (at Florida),” he said. “It’s just fun talking to all of them. It was great to be around them again (Thursday).”
