Marlon Davidson, the No. 3 player overall in the Class of 2016 according to Rivals.com, will announce his college choice Sept. 4 at his school in Greenville, Ala.
Davidson, a 6-3 279-pound strong side defensive end, is expected by most to select Auburn, which he has visited several times. Alabama and Georgia seem to be in the mix as well.
He is expected to graduate in December and enroll in college in January to take part in spring drills.
“He’s being shown a lot of attention right now,” Greenville coach Josh McClendon said. “We want him to get the most out of himself this season. We have to get him to understand that he doesn’t have to do everything by himself. I think, for him, going to college early will be more for his benefit. It will allow him to get into a balanced environment.”
Davidson spent his first two years of high school at Greenville and then transferred to Carver in Montgomery. He transferred back to Greenville for his senior year to be closer to family after his mother passed away.
