    In less than 24 hours, Ben Davis, the nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker, will announce his college decision.

    In anticipation of National Signing Day, Davis, who has been recruited by just about every major program in the country, tweeted out his top five schools on Tuesday morning.

    The race has come down to four SEC schools – Alabama, Auburn, LSU and Mississippi State – and Notre Dame.

    The Crimson Tide have long been considered Davis’ frontrunner, but Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs have made an impression and his visit to Auburn last weekend went very well.

    “Everybody’s up there for me,” Davis told AL.com. “I really don’t have a leader after this visit. I knew coming in that I was going to have a great visit. I just wanted some answers to some questions and see how the coaches react and the players.”

    Despite Georgia and Auburn each making a strong push, and LSU and Notre Dame still in the mix, Alabama is still considered the team to beat for the No. 11-ranked player’s services.
