Now a Spartan

Four-star recruit Ryan Davis left Northeast for Lakewood. The Spartans have found a super high school signal caller that could be their missing piece to the puzzle.

There was some big news in St. Petersburg, Florida at the end of last month, as 2015 Scout 300 prospect Ryan Davis transferred from Northeast to Lakewood. In fact, Davis was one of several players that left the Vikings. This four-star wide receiver recruit is a terrific high school quarterback. Now he's the signal caller for the very talented Spartans.

"It's been a nice and good transition for Ryan and his teammates," said Corey Moore, Lakewood's coach. "Aside from his talent he's a better kid and that's the best part about this. Of course as a player, he's very good and just another big piece for us. Now we have to put it all together."

There's uncertainty in the air when it comes to Davis and his college position. At 5-foot-11 and 170-pounds, he projects the highest at wide receiver, specifically the slot. But he's a bona-fide spread quarterback who holds offers from schools like Arizona, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest. Others like USF and Florida State like him as an athlete. In the current Scout 300 Davis is rated as the No. 26 ranked wide receiver.

Davis still has two years of high school football to play so his future position is yet to be determined. That will ultimately depend on where he commits. In the meantime he's the quarterback for Lakewood and if things fall in place they could make their way very deep in the playoffs.
