Ryan Davis (St. Petersburg, Fla./Northeast) is a member of the 2015 class. He may be a few years away from his National Signing Day but he’s certainly stirring up a ton of early interest.

Davis started as a freshman in game one of last year. He only ended up playing in four games because he broke his wrist in his none throwing hand.

“All I can tell you is that this kid is the real deal,” said Mike Jalazo, Northeast’s coach. “He’s going to be off the charts.”

Davis, 5-foot-10 and 160-pounds, is off to a blazing sophomore season. The Vikings are 5-1 behind Davis. He has completed 65% of his passes for 1,129 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions. Davis has also rushed for 375 yards and two touchdowns.

“Last season getting some time and playing was a great experience for me,” Davis said. “I got some time and experience. So this season I feel a lot more comfortable.”

Football is in the family. His father Willie played and his older brother Chris was arguably the top recruit in Florida in 2003 before signing with Florida State.

“Ryan is a better quarterback than Chris at the same stage,” Davis said. “They are the same size and Ryan has a better arm. He has just grown up being a quarterback. He knows the game, understands what you are telling him and he makes all the right throws. How many quarterbacks take what the defense gives them at this age? Ryan does.”

Davis said his father and brother have played a big part in his early high school success.

“My family has been great,” Davis said. “My dad and brother have always taught me to do the little things, the small stuff. They also said that you just need to work hard every day.”

Davis already has three early verbal scholarship offers from Florida State, Arizona and Indiana.

“That Florida State offer felt great,” Davis said. “Arizona and Indiana offered too. It’s humbling for me. I am not going to get the big head.”

Davis has been to games this season at USF [vs FSU], Florida [vs LSU and Bowling Green].
