Davis Visits AU, Hoping To Hear From Tigers

Speedy football prospect Demetrius Davis from Huffman High made a return visit to see Auburn this week.

Huffman, Ala.--Already with over two dozen offers, including Mississippi State, Memphis, Indiana, Arkansas State, Troy and others, speedy athlete Demetrius Davis made another trip to check out the Auburn Tigers on Tuesday. Using his better than 4.4 speed to shine at running back for the Vikings, the 5-11, 178 Davis is being recruited as a defensive back by Auburn and he took the opportunity to get an even better feel for the Tigers on his latest trip.

“Everything is going good,” Davis said. “I actually got down there around 11 a.m. My mom wanted to see some things so we went to the stadium, saw the new dorms, got some academic things in, saw the recreation center--really everything. We got a good tour.”

Working out for the Tigers as a defensive back in June, Davis impressed with his athleticism and quickness in space. That earned him a return visit to sit down with defensive backs coachTravaris Robinson this week, something Davis said went very well because of the bond the two have in regards to making the step to the next level as players.

“He was telling me that coming out of school he wanted to play receiver,” Davis said of the AU coach who played for the Tigers. “He only got recruited as a receiver by two schools, Auburn and Miami. He ended up coming to Auburn, but switched to defensive back.”

Still waiting on an Auburn offer, Davis said he is taking his time with the recruiting process to see what he hears from the Tigers. With Robinson telling him the staff wants to see him in action this fall, Davis said all he can do now is try to impress them and hope that’s enough.

“I’m really trying to see what happens,” Davis said. “Coach said they’re going to get back to me on that and let me know some things. It’s good. I’m going to get out there and try to make some big plays and hope they offer me.

“That would be big,” he added. “I have been an Auburn fan all my life. I grew up an Auburn fan and like Auburn. That would be good because it’s in-state too.”

With no timetable for a decision Davis said at the moment he is enjoying the process. While there is no pressure on him to make a decision the upcoming senior said it’s not something he takes lightly because of what it means.

“People think about it as a decision that impacts the next four years,” Davis said. “I’m actually looking at it because of the rest of my life. This decision is going to affect the rest of your life.”
