Former Texas A&M tight end Jordan Davis announced he's headed to Louisville; will sit one season and has three years of eligibility left

Former Texas A&M tight end Jordan Davis made a visit to Louisville last weekend and on Wednesday announced he was transferring to U of L. Davis will sit out next season and then has three years of eligibility left.

Jordan Davis was able to see the University of Louisville football team on tape in preparation for the Music City Bowl.

Now, the former four-star prospect from Houston, Tx., is part of the Louisville program. Davis, who played for Texas A&M last season as a true freshman, announced on Wednesday he's transferring to Louisville.

"I want to thank coach (Bobby) Petrino and the coaching staff for giving me another opportunity," Davis said.

The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Davis called Louisville the "right fit" for a place where his talents would be used. He spent last weekend on a visit to U of L and attended the Cardinals' spring game.

Davis, an early enrollee last spring at Texas A&M, played 11 games for the Aggies and had two catches for seven yards. He scored a 3-yard touchdown in his first career game against Ball State.

Texas A&M only used a tight end in 32 percent of its plays, but Davis said he knows Louisville uses it much more.

"If you are a tight end, there's nothing more than you can ask for than what they do at Louisville," he said. "You can call that the new "Tight End U." I saw what Cole (Hikituni) showed in the (Music City) bowl game (against Texas A&M) and that carried over into the spring and the spring game. They didn't disappoint me at all, watching the tight ends.

"They really use the tight in in so many ways."

Davis was the No. 137 prospect nationally by Scout.com in the Class of 2015 and was ranked as the No. 5 tight end.
