Shaquille Davidson’s sophomore season was cut short due to injury. Now, the 2014 Gaffney (S.C.) High wide receiver is 100 percent healthy and poised for a big junior season.

“Everything is going good,” said Shaquille Davidson. “I’m just happy to be back out there. I believe we are going to be just as good if not better than last year.”

Although he only played in six games last fall, several college football programs have already extended scholarship offers.

“I have offers from Clemson, Georgia, North Carolina, N.C. State, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Wake Forest, “he said. “Pittsburgh, Oregon, Nebraska, and Notre Dame are also recruiting me. I think Notre Dame will probably be the next to offer.”

Four schools are at the top of his list.

“I don’t really have a leader, but Ohio State, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina are my top schools – in no order,” Davidson said.

With football season around the corner, the 6-foot-1, 170-pound playmaker is ready to take some trips this fall.

“I haven’t set anything up, but I’m hoping to make a lot of visits this season,” said Davidson. “I know I’m going to end up going to a couple of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Clemson games.”

As an upperclassman, Davidson expects his role to be different this fall.

“I feel like since Quinshad (Davis) is gone, that I’m going to have to step up and be more of a leader than I was last year,” he said. But I learned a lot from him because he was a real leader.”

Now that he is completely healthy, the Gaffney standout is focused on his upcoming season.

“Team-wise, we want to win the region and the state (championship),” Davidson said. Invidually, as long as we win that’s the main thing, but I do want to lead the state in receiving.”
