Davis Sets AU Visit, Talks Tigers

Auburn commitment Chris Davis gives his feelings on the Tigers and talks about his upcoming visit.

Birmingham, Ala.--One of the top athletes in Alabama for the 2010 class, Woodlawn standout Chris Davis put an end to his recruiting in December when he committed to the Auburn Tigers over South Carolina, Mississippi State and others.

Now playing basketball for the 7-7 Colonels, Davis says he's just excited about his decision and ready to get to Auburn.

"Everything is still going straight with me," the 5-11, 180 Davis tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "It feels good to get it over with. There is a lot I like about Auburn."

One of the first order of business for Davis is to take his official visit to Auburn. Originally scheduled to take his visit back when he committed in December, Davis notes that it will now happen this weekend.

Coach Dan Mullen's Bulldogs are still trying to make a push for Davis and he says at the moment he's not even sure he'll visit Starkville, but he does feel very good about his decision to be a Tiger at the moment.

A quarterback for much of his career at Woodlawn while seeing some time on defense, Davis is also an excellent kick and punt returner. He's so good with the ball in his hands that most teams recruited him as a wide receiver, however Auburn likes his skills as a future cornerback. Even though he'll be on defense, Davis says the Auburn coaches still want him touching the football.

"They told me I could come in and start at punt returner if I can do what I was doing on the field at Woodlawn," Davis says. "They said they needed somebody to come in and work. I like that."

Playing both ways for the Colonels this season, Davis had a huge year as his team finished 5-4. It was the first winning record for Woodlawn in almost 15 years. In just nine games Davis finished with 10 touchdowns on the ground, one through the air, 877 yards rushing as a quarterback. He also added five interceptions as a defensive back.

Also a standout basketball guard for Woodlawn on the hardwood, Davis is averaging close to 20 points per game this season. His best game came in a holiday tournament when he poured in 38 against Wenonah.
