"When I got to school this morning and signed in at the office they told me that our former coach (defensive coordinator) Brent Dearmon wanted me to call him," Davis says. "When I got in touch with him it was Coach Malzahn on the phone and he was telling me they were going to offer me a scholarship and I told him I was going to come. I accepted about 10 seconds later, I didn't hesitate.
"Coach Malzahn was excited," he adds. "He told me I made his day and that he didn't think it would be so soon, but that's just how it happened."
Playing a position of need for Auburn's 2014 recruiting class, Davis is athletic and capable of making plays all over the field as evidenced by his stats as a junior. Earning Class 6A Honorable Mention All-State honors, Davis made 148 tackles with 15 tackles for a loss, two interceptions and one sack for the Wolves.
"It's just that family atmosphere," he says of what he loves about Auburn. "I have been to a lot of schools and none beat out Auburn. They just make you feel at home and make you feel like they want you there. They gave me that feel even when I didn't have a scholarship offer so imagine what I'm going to feel now that I have been offered and committed. I'm just excited about the whole process. Auburn is the place for me, no ifs, ands, or buts about it."
Carrying a 3.1 grade point average, Davis is a solid student and a player that is looking to play early for the Tigers next season. He says as far as the recruiting game goes this does it for him and he's now focused on the future and playing at Auburn.
"Auburn is the place for me," Davis says. "DeShaun Davis will be attending Auburn."
