Despite being blessed with a handful of young talent in the secondary, Nebraska has offered junior college cornerback Devron Davis. The Merced standout has a double-digit offer list featuring offers from schools such as Oklahoma, Washington State, West Virginia, Utah and Louisville.
A three-star prospect, Davis is currently 6-foot and 205-pounds. He doesn't just play corner for Merced, but also running back and is an active player on special teams.
"If they need me to return punts, play running back, I feel like I could be flexible in everything," said Davis. "When I get the ball on a INT, that also contributes to my game, because I feel I can take it back every time."
Davis says Nebraska's offer definitely has sparked his interest.
"Nebraska has some good defensive backs over the year," said Davis. "I know it's a new staff, with Coach (Brian) Stewart and Coach (Mike) Riley, but Nebraska is a good team that I think I would fit in with...I feel like my skill-set transitions to what they want to do. I'm a competitor and I feel like I could come in and be a leader as well. I think could come in and take over the corner spot."
Davis will have three years to play two. Last season, he recorded 33 tackles and three interceptions.
"Coach Stewart and I have been talking about a visit soon. He has some camps and after that, I will probably get a visit set up. If not then, right after the season for sure," said Davis, who can take officials during the summer because of junior college status. "I definitely want to visit."
Big Red Report will continue to monitor Davis' recruitment.
