Sophomore Cornerback Jaden Davis Is Warming up to Schools Representing the SEC and ACC

MIAMI, Fla. -- Just a sophomore, cornerback Jaden Davis is a wanted young man with scholarship offers on the table from nearly 15 Division I programs.

Regardless of which graduating class, Jaden Davis certainly stepped up to the plate and was one of the top defensive performers from the talent-rich Under Armour All-America Camp at Miami Gulliver Prep this past weekend.

Davis, a sophomore cornerback at Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas, is also a hot commodity on the recruiting scene that's forever grateful for all the attention that's been coming in his direction over the past year or so.

"It's crazy," Davis said. "Just thinking, like, when I was a kid I wanted to be the best and the guy with all the offers. They're all starting roll in and I'm getting a lot of interest from schools I really like

"They like my zone coverage. I have to work on my press a little bit, but they like the way I get after the ball, break, and how I'm patient with receivers."

With over a dozen total scholarship offers to choose from, including ones from Mississippi StateIllinoisMissouriNC State and Kentucky, Davis says he's already comfortable enough to dish out his top two schools after making the trek up to both campuses in the past.

"I've been up to Kentucky and Syracuse so far, so I feel like I have the best relationship with (offensive coordinator) coach (Eddie) Gran and (secondary) coach (Nick) Monroe," Davis said.


Davis, who will likely be equipped with nearly 30 Division I opportunities by the time he wraps up his prep career, goes into more detail on his significant interest level in the programs ran by Dino Babers and Mark Stoops.

"Syracuse, it was amazing," Davis said of last year's visit up to Central New York. "It's like a family up there. Coach Monroe brought me up there for the visit, and I immediately felt like I was at home.

"Kentucky, coach Gran actually had offered me at Cincinnati because that was my first offer. When him and (defensive backs) coach (Steve) Clinkscale went to Kentucky, they ended up offering me.

"I've been talking to them for so long, so I've already built a relationship with them."

The 5-foot-10, 165-pound defensive back says he plans to journey up to Lexington for Kentucky's spring game.

As always, stay tuned to Scout.
