Auburn Recruit Decommits

Chatham, Va.--Tailback Enrique Davis, who signed with Auburn last February before attending Hargrave Military this academic year, has decommitted from Auburn.

"Right now I am decommitted," Davis tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. "I'm checking out a couple of other schools right now.

"This weekend right now I'm going to Ole Miss," he adds. "Next weekend I'm visiting Tennessee and the weekend after that it's coming down to Florida State and Maryland. I'm not sure exactly which one right now. I've already taken my official visit to Auburn. I took it for the Iron Bowl game."

After signing with Auburn in February 2007, Davis had originally stuck with his commitment to the Tigers with plans of signing again on Feb. 6, 2008. After the latest development and even though he is no longer committed to Auburn, he says that Auburn is still a possibility.

"They're still in the running," Davis explains. "Basically it had to do with the offense and whatnot. Coach (Tony) Franklin and Coach (Eddie) Gran are going to call next week and talk to me about the offense and stuff like that."

Davis is known more as a power back, which he doesn't think will fit in with the change in philosophy from Al Borges' West Coast system to the spread run by Franklin.


Davis adds that he should be in solid standing academically after his year in prep school.

As for his final decision, Davis states, "I don't know when. I can't really rush it. I feel like the time for me is the time when I'm going to do it. I don't know if it'll be signing day, after signing day or what. The decision I make right now is the decision I'm going to have to live with for the rest of my life. I've got to take it easy and go over with myself what I want to do.

"Of course playing time is what you want, but I feel wherever I go I'm going to play--not to be cocky or anything--just because of my ability and because I'm going to give 100 percent whenever I get in there. I'm going to go in there and try to make players compete with me."
