#1 Prep OLB Noor Davis set to announce Friday #1 outside linebacker Noor Davis has decided to move up his announcement date to this Friday according to Chris Nee of

Four-star linebacker Noor Davis has moved up his decision date and plans to announce a verbal commitment Friday, per Florida analyst Chris Nee.

Key players here include Notre Dame and Florida, both of which had made a cut into the top five, but Davis is considering offers from across the country and has made many visits.

Previously Davis had been targeting a decision at the Under Armour game in January.

Davis carries a 4.3 GPA and the 6 foot 4, 225 linebacker has indicated he would go to a great business school if he had a choice. The Mendoza school of Business at Notre Dame is ranked #1 in the nation and the Fighting Irish could sell playing time with the likes of Aaron Lynch, Stephon Tuitt, Ishaq Williams, Ben Councell, Ronald Darby, and Tee Shepard on a stellar defense for at least 3 of his 4 years on campus.

On the other hand the University of Florida can sell itself as one of the best public institutions in terms of business schools in the nation and the fact that they produce NFL talent. Also the defending champions Auburn Tigers just got a visit from Davis and with his sudden declaration to move up his announcement to this Friday after it was previously thought to be in January shows good promise for War Eagle.

Make no mistake Davis is the type of athlete and student any school would love to have. At this point he can pretty much go anywhere he chooses. My gut feeling is he picks Notre Dame.
