Davis, who chose to bypass the early signing period to participate in a ceremony with his classmates at his high school, has been committed to the Frogs since July 28th. Holding 12 offers, including from Army, Kansas State, and Tennessee, Davis stuck firm to his pledge despite a hard push from the Volunteers late in the game.
Standing 5’9” and weighing in at 160 pounds, Davis isn’t a huge guy at corner, something that the Frogs have put a premium on finding. But his like of premier height shouldn’t deter fans from getting excited about this new Frog, as he is fast, relentless, and unafraid of laying the big hit. Davis is also a winner - his West Feliciana team was state champions during his senior season, where he starred on both sides of the ball. Davis is lightning fast - he runs a sub-.4.4 40, and could also run track while in Fort Worth.
Welcome to the fam, Derius!
