DE LaSamuel Davis Profile
Davis went public with his decision to pledge to Clemson before a gathering of family and friends at Light of the World Church in Bamberg.
"It's like a family up there, it's just like back at home in Bamberg working with my coaches," Davis told CUTigers, after his announcement.
"They make sure you stay on top of your work, make sure you're going to class and doing what you're supposed to do."
The roots to Clemson run deep for Davis, who picked the Tigers over a number of offers, including UNC, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.
"Clemson had Da'Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp. They were apart of that, too. There are some other great players like Vic Beasley, Bashaud Breeland from Allendale, they kind of inspired me to be apart of that, too," Davis said.
When asked to describe himself as a player, the 6-4, 218-pound prospect said he's dependable.
"I'm going to do whatever I've got to do to do my job...I'm an accountable person. You can count on me to be there," he said.
Mary Davis, his mom, is happy with the decision.
"We love it. We went up there for Junior Day and Clemson just stood right out in front. They were very helpful, they were very nice to us. We loved it. Dabo [Swinney] was very nice."
She's excited, too.
"I've waited for this day for a long time," Mrs. Davis said. "Sammy has always been a Clemson fan. Very excited, very excited for him."
The Davis' pastor, C.A. Murray, has known LaSamuel since he was a sixth grader.
"Very humble, very quiet, very respectful," Murray said. "He's a wonderful young guy."
As a junior at Bamberg-Ehrhardt, Davis had 112 tackles, 38 tackles for loss and seven sacks.
