Davidson Excited About Auburn Offer

2016 defensive line prospect Marlon Davidson talks about adding an offer from the Auburn Tigers.

Already very familiar with the Auburn Tigers after watching older brother Kenneth Carter play the last four seasons, 2016 defensive line prospect Marlon Davidson worked out at Saturday’s camp for Coach Rodney Garner and left with the news he’s been waiting for.

“I got an offer today,” the 6-4, 267 Davidson said. “That means a lot to me. It means I actually worked this time. I came up here before and didn’t get it. I came back this time and I got it. That’s great.

“I love the coaches and everything about them,” he added. “I love the fans the most. They are very intense. I like the players here. They welcome you like home.”

Seeing his brother play last season for the Tigers and get a year under his belt playing for Garner, Davidson said he likes the intensity the veteran coach brings the table whether it’s on the field for a game or in a camp setting like Saturday.

“He’s tough,” Davidson said. “I know I’m going to have to finish through every drill. I know I’ll have to really get after it. I’ll have to work.”

Currently looking at Georgia, Alabama, LSU and several others in addition to Auburn, Davidson said at this moment there are no favorites on his list as he prepares for his junior year.

“All of my schools are even right now,” Davidson said. “Everything is just the same.”

When he takes the field this fall it will be with a new school after transferring to Carver-Montgomery during the summer. Bonding with fellow 2016 prospect Lyndell Wilson, Davidson said he can’t wait to play for the Wolverines this fall and be part of one of the top defenses in the state.

“Me and Lyndell plan to crank it up a little bit this year,” Davidson said. “It’s going to mean that I’ll have to get after it. We all have long-term goals and that is to compete and see who can top each other. I know we’re planning on going to the same school and being the dynamic duo.”

Davidson hopes to have a decision sometime near the end of his senior season.
