RB Mike Davis Profile
CUTigers caught up with Stephenson High School (Stone Mountain, Ga.) junior running back Mike Davis at last month's Georgia Junior Bowl.
"It was crazy. All I would see growing up is Clemson Tigers, because my brother played for them and went there," he said. "There's still a lot of stuff in my house that says Clemson Tigers."
In two NFL seasons, with the Redskins and Browns, James Davis has rushed 28 times for 75 yards. He's also caught eight passes for 50 yards.
At Clemson, ‘Thunder' Davis is second in school history with 3,881 yards. His 47 rushing touchdowns are first in school history.
The younger Davis said he's not getting too much pressure to follow in his brother's footsteps.
"He gives me advice, as far as my recruiting—things of that nature," he said. "He tells me to make sure I don't go to the wrong place and I don't play in college."
The brothers speak often.
"He talks to me about Clemson, but he always tells me to make my own choice," Davis said.
"I hear from him every night. But during the day, I don't. He's always busy."
As a junior, he rushed for over 1,200 yards and scored 13 touchdowns.
Along with Clemson, South Carolina, Central Florida, Vanderbilt and Tennessee have offered. At the time of the interview, Davis claimed the Gamecocks as his leader, with Tennessee not far behind.
