Quoting Davis: "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."

Worth Noting: Davis made 148 tackles as a junior, but missed his senior season with a knee injury. He has made a strong recovery and is expected to be ready for action this fall as a freshman with the Tigers. An early commitment to Auburn, he did a good job of helping the coaches with recruiting.
