Spotlight Class of 2011: Ed Davis

Compare the thoughts of Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio and Spartan Digest.

Ed Davis - Linebacker

HT: 6-FOOT-3 / WT: 214-POUNDS

Another player the Spartans worked with in camp and have watched enough to know what he is capable of doing. Gives the Spartans another excellent athlete who can run while also cover. Should help push the Spartans defense up another level during his career.

Mark Dantonio Says: "Ed Davis is extremely tough and runs very well. He is another young man who we saw in camp this year and we also saw him play in 2010. Ed is a very talented player who hits with power and is extremely quick. He has great knee bend, explosiveness and ball skills. He also possesses the size and speed to be an outstanding player early in his career at MSU."

Spartan Digest Says: Great pickup for the Spartans class as he brings great athletic ability being able to lineup at linebacker or even come up and stand up on the edge. Will need to add some weight and strength but that should not be a problem.
