The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. He is currently rated as the #8 outside linebacker in the country by Scout.com, making him a four-star prospect.
Davis is considering offers from LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas. He is a verbal commitment to LSU, but will take visits.
Scout Eval: Davis is a real threat to get the to the quarterback off of the edge. He is rated as an outside linebacker, but he could play with his hand in the dirt a lot on the next level. He has a lightning quick first step and fights hard through blocks.
