Spartans CB Davis gets his scholarship back

Davis found out that a English class he took in his freshman year at Alliance high school in Canton, OH didn't meet the NCAA clearinghouse eligibility requirements leaving him one credit short of meeting NCAA requirements.

OKEMOS, MI - Michigan State student athlete Kendell Davis found himself without a scholarship when he arrived in East Lansing.

Davis found out that a English class he took in his freshman year at Alliance high school in Canton, OH didn't meet the NCAA clearinghouse eligibility requirements leaving him one credit short of meeting NCAA requirements.

He appealed to the NCAA but had his appeal denied, so he had two choices, he could go the junior college route, or he could pay his way through to MSU.

Davis chose the latter and used the time to work out and hit the books. The move paid off when Davis received his scholarship for the 2006-07 season.

At Alliance he rushed for 1,404 yards and 12 touchdowns and is slated to be MSU kick returner and nickle back this fall.
