Carlton Davis Chooses Auburn

Carlton Davis finally made it official on Wednesday, choosing the Auburn Tigers.

Miami, Fla.--After weeks of speculation, talented defensive back Carlton Davis made it official on Wednesday when the Norland High standout signed with the Auburn Tigers. A longtime commitment to Ohio State, Davis visited Auburn in January along with good friend Jeremiah Dinson and will now join him in the Tigers’ secondary.

At 6-2, 180, Davis has the size to play safety and he’s rated a three-star at that position by Scout, but will likely get his first look at cornerback in Auburn’s defense. Choosing the Tigers over the Buckeyes, Florida, Miami and many others, Davis is a physical player that was one of the top defensive players in the Semper Fi Game in California.

A first-team All-Dade County performer as a senior, Davis had 38 tackles and five interceptions for Norland.

Instant Analysis:

Davis is a player that Auburn Coach Travaris Robinson went after hard on the recruiting trail because of his length and ability to cover ground in the secondary. Built like Seattle’s Richard Sherman, Davis has the speed to run with receivers on the outside, but isn’t afraid to come up and be physical in run support. He should be a player to challenge for playing time right away at one of the cornerback spots for the Tigers as well as getting in the action on special teams.
