Davis throws for Kiffin at camp

On Alabama's first day of summer camp 2014, one of Mississippi's top quarterbacks joined the mix and tried to show his stuff for Lane Kiffin and company. He talks about his Sunday inside.

Nick Saban has quarterbacks going through the proverbial gauntlet this time every year, as part of his Alabama camp sessions.

The first one of 2014 took place on Sunday, and Starkville (Miss.) High's Brady Davis impressed enough to make it into offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin's final throwing group of the day.

Before the trip, the 6-foot-3, 190 pound rising-senior was worried the UA staff wouldn't know who he was, however.

"I'm a little under the radar cause of my previous record at my old school but I should impress," he said.

Davis seemingly did, though he felt he could have showcased his arm talent a bit more.

"It was hot out there," he said. "I didn't do as well as I had wished, but was one of the three QB's Kiffin had throw for him though. I looked good in the pocket precision drills, I threw it fine. I just didn't go out there and throw lights out like I did thought spring.

"I also hurt my MCL in spring and didn't mention it to them, so I probably looked a little worse throwing on the run."

Despite the feelings, Davis was invited to return to camp and throw in the July camp session by Kiffin and company, so he showed some promise.

"We just went through some routes in that last group," he said. "Then he (Kiffin) just asked if if I could get back any time, to just come throw for them again.

"I will if I can get an open date, yes sir."

So with some worry about the Alabama staff not knowing his name, Davis was able to impress enough to be one that the group is now familiar with going forward.

"It just made me feel good they all already knew who I was," he said.

The Tide camp was the first of many this summer for Davis, who holds offers from nine double-digit schools, per Scout.com. He'll throw at Ole Miss on Wednesday and Mississippi State Friday.
