2012 Intro: Drew Davis

RALEIGH, N.C. --- Inside Carolina profiles junior Drew Davis, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker from Broughton High School.

Scouting Report

"He can do it all," Broughton head coach Chris Martin said. "He can jump into coverage and he's excellent in run support.

"On the next level, people have talked about him playing the SAM linebacker. He has the wheels to do it. He has the smarts to do it."

Prep Career

A few days before Broughton's season opener, Davis had surgery on his wrist which required the insertion of a screw. He returned to the lineup the second game of the season and went on to record 150 tackles and be named all-conference for the second consecutive season.

"He's a kid we brought up as a sophomore and really solidified our defense when we moved him to the MIKE linebacker," Martin said. "He started out at defensive end, but once we moved him to MIKE, he showed an ability to play sideline-to-sideline."


Davis has garnered interest from Duke, East Carolina, Georgia Tech, LSU, Nebraska, North Carolina, NC State, and Vanderbilt.

The lack of any scholarship offers has prevented Davis from establishing favorite schools.

"I just want to play wherever I can," Davis said. "If I got an offer, that would help me sort out my choices. But, right now, I'm just trying to figure out who wants me."

To help boost his recruiting stock, Davis plans on camping at East Carolina, UNC, NC State, Vanderbilt, and Wake Forest this summer.

Davis has attended junior days at Duke and Wake Forest.

Extra Notes

Growing up, Davis was a "big" UNC fan and his family was season ticket holders for a few years. His grandfather is an alum and his older brother is currently enrolled there… Davis played lacrosse early in his prep career, but gave it up to focus solely on football.
