Davis Excited About Signing With Tigers

Auburn commitment Deshaun Davis talks about his weekend spent recruiting Rashaan Evans and why he's excited about signing with the Tigers.

Mobile, Ala.--After taking his official visit to Auburn last weekend, linebacker commitment DeShaun Davis was back on the Plains Saturday to spend time around the coaches and future teammates, but also to help recruit five-star linebacker Rashaan Evans. Perhaps the top player left on Auburn's board, Evans spent a lot of time with Davis and fellow commitments Tre Williams, Stephen Roberts and Kamryn Pettway while on his visit and the Vigor standout says it was a great weekend all the way around.

"It was good," the 6-0, 228 Davis tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "Anytime you come up and talk to recruits and players and just bond with them that's a good time. We got a chance to spend some time with Rashaan and put our last push in for him. I think we made a good push and we'll see what happens."

Getting to know Evans very well throughout the entire recruiting process with multiple visits spent together on the Auburn campus, Davis says that it was important for the recruits to make the drive back to the Plains this weekend to show him how much he's wanted.

"I think it went good with him," Davis notes. "We just wanted to come up and show him that we wanted to play with him. We have been telling him and texting him, but we thought this was a good time to show with our actions that we were willing to drive three hours and get of our our own beds to come see him. I know he was really appreciative of it and he told us that. I know he likes Auburn, but he likes Alabama too. It's going to come down to the wire for him."

While making the trip to hang out with Evans was the first order of business, Davis says that there is always a good reason to come back to his future home. In love with the campus, program and university since before he committed, he says every time back is like his first time.

"If I could explain it in words I would let you know," Davis says of his feelings for Auburn. "It's just that every time I step on the campus I get a different feeling from it. It gets better and better every day. The first time I see that AU symbol a big smile hits my face and I get those butterflies. I just can't wait to get up there."

Planning to make it official by signing at a ceremony at Vigor High on Feb. 5 along with his teammate and fellow Auburn commitment Justin Thornton, Davis says he's counting down the minutes and can't wait to get his career started.

"I'm looking forward to it a lot," Davis says. "It has always been a dream for me to play college football and the SEC is the best conference. Me having those offers and being accepted to an SEC school really speaks volumes to me. Wednesday that dream will actually be a reality so that's a big step for me in my life."
