Signing Day Capsule: RB Kingston Davis

Get to know 2016 Michigan running back signee Kingston Davis on national signing day.



Kingston Davis, a long-time Michigan commit, comes from Pratville, Alabama. Michigan, Jim Harbaugh in particular, has a close relationship with the city of Pratville as of late, including a satellite camp during the summer. Despite being a longtime commit. U-M had to hold on to Davis after seeing increased interest from SEC schools and him taking official visits. Despite the interest, Davis stayed true to his pledge and enrolled to U-M early in December.


"The same can be said of Davis, who initially was touted as a potential fullback, but is now not only considered a running back, but one the Wolverines must keep in the fold as LSU and Florida have both offered. A powerful back with great balance, he has a chance to continue his rise with a good senior season."


“It’s a great atmosphere up there at Michigan,” he later added.  “Coach Harbaugh and Tyrone Wheatley were a big part of it.  I love them.  They’re great coaches and I think that’s where I want to spend my next four years.”


Much like Kareem Walker, Michigan's other early enrollee running back, he has a chance to walk in and contribute his true freshman season. With the Wolverines returning a lot of experience at the running back position with no one taking charge of the depth chart, there's an opportunity for Davis to leave his mark year one.
