Davis twins commit to Clemson

Rising seniors J.D. and Judah Davis, the twin sons of former Clemson linebacker Jeff Davis, will follow in their father's footsteps.

After the final practice of the first session of the Dabo Swinney Football Camp, the Daniel High School linebackers immediately accepted greyshirt offers from Clemson.

"After camp, we went to talk to coach Swinney in his office and he told us about it right then and there," J.D. said on Friday afternoon, during an interview with CUTigers.

The twins were "ecstatic."

"I've always thought that I was supposed to go to Clemson," J.D. said. "It's a big family place. My dad played here, three of my sisters came here. It was just a win-win."

The Davis twins will graduate from Daniel in December. This January, they'll enroll at Tri-County Tech as part-time students. In January of 2015, they'll be on scholarship and on the football team at Clemson.

"It's super exciting. It's a dream come true. We always thought we were meant to go to Clemson," Judah said.

But he admitted that Friday's news was a bit of a surprise.

"We knew that if we kept working hard, I might be able to earn an offer," Judah said.

The twins, both of whom are 6-foot-2, 215 pounds, play middle and outside linebacker at Daniel.

J.D. described himself as a "physical, smart" player.

"We are apart of a great linebacking corps…we enjoy playing for Daniel," Judah said.

Last season, Judah had 80 tackles.
