Q&A: Bryan Davis

With Signing Day done, Eagle Insider will be following up the 2009 class. This is the eleventh installment of a series of Q&A sessions. This time it is Bryan Davis, who took some time to talk with Eagle Insider.

EI: Which coach played the biggest part in your recruitment to BC?

BD: Coach Commish (Jeff Commisiong). He was just there with me and kept it straight forward.

EI: What position have you been told you will be starting your BC career at?

BD: Defensive tackle.

EI: How would you describe your game on the field at this point?

BD: Very fast paced, very aggressive. I like to hit a lot but I also like to use different techniques to get past my blockers.

EI: So you definitely sound like a defensive guy since you like to hit, because there was some talk whether you were recruited as a DT or a center on the OL?

BD: Oh yeah, definitely. The only reason I played offense was because our team was so short on big guys on the line. Our center before me wasn't doing as well as he should have, so I felt like I needed to step up and play a bigger role on the team. I can play offense but I would rather play defense and defense is where the coaches said I will play.

EI: What do you listen to before a football game?

BD: There are a lot of different things that I listen to. I listen to a song by Nas called ‘Hero.' I listen to some Gucci Man, he's a rapper down south. And when I am done with that I sit down and I think, then I pray. I pray at my locker and then I pray one more time on the field.

EI: Who was your host on your official visit?

BD: The other Bryan, Bryan Murray. He cut my hair, he was pretty much the team barber.

EI: Funniest or most memorable moment or person from official visit?

BD: I think it had to be when we went to eat at a seafood restaurant, The Capital Grille. They brought out like a 50 pound lobster, it was huge, it was the biggest lobster I had ever seen. And one of the recruits who was also there, Conor O'Neal from Florida, ate the whole thing. He ate the whole thing with no problem and was eating the side orders with it too. The lobster itself was bigger than the plate. I can't even explain to you how big it was, they said that lobster had been in there for a couple of years. That lobster was huge.

EI: So who is bigger at this time you or Conor O'Neal?

BD: He had to be bigger. He must weigh more. He eats way more than I do, I couldn't even force myself to eat that much.

EI: Have you kept in touch with any BC players or fellow commitments?

BD: Nah, I have been focused on getting my school work done and following the workout program. I haven't had time to hook up with any of them.

EI: What was the reason you chose BC, other than big time football and great academics?

BD: The people. It was kinda like being at home. It's funny because I went up there and everybody was telling me how people were going to be rude and nobody was going to talk to me or interact with me. Because we are from Georgia and people have southern hospitality. It really surprised me that when I went up there everybody was friendly. Even talking to people that didn't know I was going to be going there, it was cool. It was kinda like…how could I say it…being where everybody loves each other. It's kinda hard to explain but it was just the feeling that I got.

EI: If I didn't choose BC, I would have gone to______.

BD: Georgia Southern. I'm trying to think though because nobody has ever asked me that question. I'm thinking Georgia Tech actually. They hadn't offered but they were talking about offering me pretty soon but I went ahead and accepted the Boston College offer.

EI: Which home-cooked meal are you going to miss the most while at college?

BD: I make most of the home cooked meals when we eat in but it would have to be my grandmother's cooking. As far as what I am going to miss the most, it is a lot of things (chuckles). She makes smothered turkey, it has gravy on it. Macaroni and cheese, it is so delicious. Mashed potatoes, collard greens. She throws it down. She cooks corn bread, it tastes just like cake. It's really good. She does a lot of things with different foods, I'm going to miss that the most.

EI: Hottest celebrity you would like to go out with, kind of like your dream girl?

BD: (laughs) My dream girl, my dream girl…it's kinda hard. I would have to say Sanaa Nathan from Love & Basketball. It would definitely be her (chuckles).

EI: When at a party, what's your best line with a girl?

BD: (laughs) Wow, that's hard. I don't usually use lines, it's just like "hey what's up" (breaks up into laughter). That is kinda hard.
