Davis Ready To Be An Auburn Tiger

Auburn verbal commitment T.J. Davis talks about his official visit over the weekend.

Tallahassee, Fla.—There wasn't any doubt for commitment T.J. Davis that Auburn was the place for him even before he took his official visit over the weekend. Now that he's seen what Auburn is like on a game day and had the opportunity to see Tiger Walk, the eagle flight, etc., he is positive he's ready to be a Tiger.

"The trip was great," Davis said. "It was my first and only official visit this year. The game was great. They won. They beat Florida. It was a great game. I thought it would be a pretty close game, actually. Special teams did a great job and defense did a great job. Overall, it was a great visit. I was already pretty much solid. But now, that just topped the cake."

Making the trip with his parents Davis said it was fun to see them get into being an Auburn fan considering that he grew up in a mixed household, one Florida and one Florida State fan.

"We were kind of an in-between house," Davis said. "They're Auburn fans now. War Eagle all the way."

Hosted on his visit by Auburn running back Onterio McCalebb, Davis had the opportunity to watch his host score a touchdown in the win over Florida. Even though he's a defensive player he said that he and McCalebb have just hit it off over the last few months and he enjoys hanging out with his fellow Floridian.

"Onterio is a great guy," Davis said. "I've been on a few unofficials here -- Junior Day and National Championship celebration -- and he's always been my host. He's from Florida so he kind of knows where I'm coming from and how it is being away from home. I can relate to him a lot."

Also spending time with other prospects on hand including commitments Zeke Pike and T.J. Yeldon as well as uncommitted Deon Bush from Miami, Davis said they're working hard to bring more talent in with this year's class.

Already with a solid foundation for the 2012 class, Auburn is looking to finish strong with several more top targets on both sides of the ball. One thing is for sure and that is the future is very bright for Coach Gene Chizik's program. Davis said after watching the defense play well against the Gators with so many young guys seeing action makes him ready to be a part of an exciting time for the Auburn Tigers.

"That lets me know the coaches know what they're talking about," Davis said. "They're teaching the kids the right thing and coaching them the right stuff and putting them in the right spot to make the plays that they're supposed to make. I just want to come in and compete for a starting spot. Just play ball and do whatever I can to contribute to the team."
