Defensive Back: "New U" just offered me

The Hurricanes offered one of the area's top defensive back prospects today. Read on to learn about him and to see what Miami's chances are.

"Blessed to receive an offer from the NEW U," announced Shawn Davis today.

At 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, Davis is a 2017 cornerback prospect at Miami Southridge High. He put his name on the recruiting map with an excellent junior season. It has resulted in several major scholarship offers lately.

USC, Alabama, Auburn, and Tennessee are some other schools who have already offered the standout defender. He's already being recruited like one of the top defensive back prospects in South Florida.

It's good to see the Canes getting in the mix early on and he seems excited about it, especially when he called it the 'New U' when mentioning the offer. That's a common thought among defensive prospects.

The Canes signed two cornerbacks a couple weeks ago and the position will likely be a priority in the 2017 class.
