Down, but not out

One of the top prospects in the state of South Carolina for 2014 may be down with an ACL tear, but it won't be long before he's back.

Gaffney sophomore wide receiver Shaquille Davidson suffered the knee injury against Lancaster in the ninth game of the season.

Also a standout on the basketball court, Davidson has missed every game this season on the hardwood.

"It was pretty rough, but now I just look at it as getting better," he told CUTigers in a recent interview.

Davidson is eyeing a return to the playing field within the next few months.

"I want to say I'll be back during spring practice," he said.

So far, four schools have offered him to play football -- Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina.

"Clemson offered during the season, after I had gotten hurt," Davidson said.

Oregon, Alabama and Auburn are also expressing interest.

Davidson visited Clemson last fall for the Auburn game. He has not taken any campus trips since tearing his ACL. Though he has no plans, he would like to take visits to South Carolina and North Carolina.

The 6-foot-1, 166-pound sophomore claims no list of favorites.

As a sophomore, Davidson had 29 catches for 683 yards and eight touchdowns, including a 99-yard touchdown reception against Greenwood. He also had a 99-yard kick return against Byrnes. Davidson averaged 35.3 yards per kickoff return. Top Stories
