Four Star Prospect Impressive at Elite Camp

The Under Armour Scout.com Elite Southeast Camp featured impressive play by a prospect from Tucker High School.

Tucker, Ga.--Jonathan Davis, who was one of the top all-around high school football players in the state of Georgia last fall as a junior, stood out in a talented group of linebackers at the Under Armour Scout.com Southeast Elite Camp in Auburn.

The all-star event wasn't the first for the Tucker High School star and it won't be his last as he plans to hit the circuit this summer to show his skills.

"The camp was great," Davis says. "I went to the last one they had up in Georgia so I was used to all the guys that were out here so that was nice."

Davis rushed for more than 1,000 yards as a junior and made 125 tackles. On Sunday in Auburn, he worked out with the linebackers.

"I loved the one-on-one drill between linebackers and running backs," Davis says of the spirited session in which the backs tried to get open on pass routes vs. the defenders. Particularly good plays drew cheers of approval from the other participants and the cat-quick Davis had more than his share of good ones.

With his excellent speed, athleticism and intensity as well as his size (5-7, 186-pounds), the big question is where Davis will line up at the next level?

"I've been hearing a lot of strong safety or outside linebacker," he says, adding that the position he would most like to play is "the one that gets me on the field."

Davis, who is interested in SEC programs like Auburn, Georgia, Florida and Alabama, is holding one early SEC offer from Mississippi State. UCF and UAB also have scholarships waiting for the prospect who has not declared a leader to this point.
