Colleges Looking At Tight End Prospect

This rising senior has performed well at two different positions on the football field in high school.

Brewton, Ala.--A rising in-state senior who is starting to receive a healthy amount of attention from college recruiters has had success at more than one position in high school.

Trent Davidson, who weighed in at six-foot-five, 242 pounds at the Nike Camp on the Auburn campus in May, plays tight end and is a deep snapper for T.R. Miller High School.

As a junior, he made 15 catches for 225 yards and was credited with 26 pancake blocks. He also handled the deep snapping duties without a hitch.

Davidson tells Inside the Auburn Tigers his coaches informed him that he was going to become the team's deep snapper and it has worked out well. "When I was a sophomore they called me and and said, ‘You are a pitcher. You have a good arm so we are going to teach you to snap it between your legs.'

"In two years we have gotten every punt off and there has been one muffed snap on PAT. The holder didn't get it down."

The past spring in baseball Davidson hit .415 with six home runs and 40 RBI while pitching and playing first base.

So far, colleges have been giving him more attention as a football prospect. In-state, in addition to Auburn, he is hearing from Alabama and UAB. Out-of-state teams include Florida State, Arkansas, LSU, Middle Tennessee State, West Virginia and Notre Dame.

He plans to make another trip to Auburn for a football camp this summer and says he will also participate in camps at Alabama, Middle Tennessee State and Florida State as he gets ready for his senior season at one of the top high school football programs in the state of Alabama.
