uot;You see some guys who run well, but then they lose that speed when they put pads on. Not him. His speed carries over to game night.”
Davis had 73 tackles and five sacks as a linebacker last season, but will move to defensive end this year, which is where most programs project him as a college player. But some, like Texas A&M with its 3-4 defensive scheme, think he could be an outside linebacker.
"He possesses a lot of flexibility for the teams recruiting him,” Bays said. "He'll play a lot of snaps both ways for us. He could be a linebacker, a defensive end, a tight end, a fullback. He can go to college and play at 240 pounds or 280 pounds.”
Davis has Division I size, speed and talent — there's no doubting that. And in his senior season, he is determined to erase any doubts about his ability to bring all of those qualities on every play.
"I'm aggravated by the situation I'm in now,” he said. "It's definitely a motivator. It lit a fire. When coaches see my senior year game film, they'll see a big difference.”
