2015 CB Davante Davis waiting on Miami

2015 CB Davante Davis waiting on Miami

Peter Ariz
One of the breakout stars of the 2013 high school football season was Homestead’s Davante Davis. The 2015 corner bursted onto the scene last year, intercepting Sean white twice in a nationally televised game. The 6-2, 185-pound CB has since transferred to Booker T. Washington.

“It’s like a family. I though it was going to be harder, but it’s been easy. I used to live in Overtown, so it’s really not any different. I’m trying to win a championship,” said Davis.

Heading into last season, Davis played a lot of tight end and receiver, but made the full-time switch to cornerback and it seems to have been the right move.

“I’m very comfortable there (at corner) now. I’m physical and most receivers don’t like that. I plan on staying at corner. Growing up, I played both sides of the ball and on defense I played almost every position.”

Davis holds one offer from FAU right now, but that looks like it will be changing soon.

“UM always comes around. Florida State and UCF came down. I’ve talked to Alabama and Coach (Mario) Cristobal a few times. I’ve talked to Coach (Lamar) Thomas from Louisville too.”

Although he seems to have interest in the hometown Canes, Davis is a little confused as to why they have not turned up the heat on him.

“I don’t know about them because every time they come around it’s only like a handshake. They always talk about bringing in the hometown kids, but if they take forever to offer then you lose their interest in them. I haven’t been to any of their events because they haven’t invited me.”

Davis is very familiar with Miami linebackers coach Micheal Barrow, a Homestead product.

“Micheal Barrow and Coach (Brennan) Carroll are always coming around Booker T and they were always at Homestead for Lane. It’s a pretty good vibe from Barrow because he always seems excited to see me and I had surgery on my shoulder so he asks me about that.”

What is Davis looking to work on over this offseason?

“I just want to be more of a shutdown corner. I don't want many balls caught on me.”

FWIW, I have heard that Miami is very high on him and I expect an offer to come soon.

Blows my damn mind on why he hasn't been invited to any events. Seems like every 3* or above from south Florida gets an invite but not a stud like Davis?

Anyways, Davis is a stud at CB and could be really special for us. I hope we don't make him wait till camp to offer. Physical, great length, and ball skills.
 
I like this kids size, length and skill set, I think AG should load up on secondary talent this cycle and not wait for the big name players to commit, and then choose to go after the under the radar players. This cycle I would mix special talent with under the radar south florida players. Bring in competition at every position.
 
He should be a top priority also, we got so many options but we cant just let some of these guys go without a major fight
 
we might be in a hole to get this guy if a decent program swoops in and offers before we do.
 
These kids act like Miami is supposed to offer them, Miami schollys don't mean much to some of these kids. He has one offer and talking about Miami offers so late. Smh but sounds like a player and would love to have.

Reading again he seems to think UM will offer saying that they're always around but then shows concern as to why they havent offered or shown him as much love. It's weird BUT the kids got the talent that warrants attention
 
When he gets his hands on players they go down. He needs to improve his technique because he is not going to be able to just sling players down at the next level. Im impress with his film I will definitely check him out this fall.
 
Only has 1 offer from FAU, but pissed at Miami because they haven't offered yet.

Makes sense.


That name brings back memories, lol.
 
I want us to load up on DB's, DT's, LB's and WR's .... Need some OL too! maybe 3-4

OL (4)
Db's (2)
DT's (3)
Wr's (3)
Lb's (2)

Anything else is a bonus!!!
 
So no invite to UM's junior day? Don't understand why, if he's that nice, measurables seem to be there.
