Football Prospect Hitting the Camp Circuit

An in-state football prospect is getting looks from colleges at more than one position.

Brewton, Ala.--Trent Davidson is a good looking tight end prospect from T.R. Miller High School.

At 6-6 and 242 pounds with a 4.66 40-yard dash speed, he has the ability to make an early contribution at tight end or he could possibly grow into a swift offensive tackle on the next level. He definitely has the ability to add more weight to his frame. He dropped 20 pounds to improve his quickness.

"Some colleges have talked to me about playing offensive tackle," Davidson says. "Last year I was 262 pounds, but I got into the weight room and got my strength and speed up."

Davidson has the versatility that coaches love because he gives them several options with his size and speed. At T.R. Miller High School, his first option is at tight end. "We run the ball mostly. I caught 15 passes last year, and every one of them was for a first down or a touchdown. I deep snap also. I've been snapping for punts for two years already and we've never had a punt blocked. I started snapping for field goals last year, too."

The rising senior has been busy already this summer, and he will be attending more camps over the next two months. "I've gone to Alabama and MTSU already," he says. "I'm planning on going to Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, and maybe Southern Miss and Mississippi State. The last two aren't final yet. I've gotten offers from Louisville, MTSU, and Mississippi State. I don't really have any favorites right now. I want to keep my options open and take a look at all of the colleges."

Davidson is in good shape academically. He has a 3.4 grade point average, is a member of his school's honor society and has a qualifying ACT score of 24 that he plans to retake to shoot for a higher number. "I really want to take a look at academics and campus life so I can make a good decision on where I want to spend the next four years of my life."
