South Carolina commit hears from Irish

Four-star tight end Kyle Davis of Lawrenceville (Ga.) Archer is one of three tight ends Notre Dame is currently targeting in the 2016 class. The South Carolina commit talks about his interest in Notre Dame.

Notre Dame has extended offers to three tight ends in the class of 2016, including South Carolina commit Kyle Davis of Lawrenceville (Ga.) Archer.

Davis, who committed to the Gamecocks in the beginning of last fall, recently touched base with Irish assistant Scott Booker.

“Notre Dame actually offered me sometime in the fall, but I wasn’t aware of it,” Davis said. “Coach Booker called me this week to check in, and that’s when I found out I actually had an offer. We mainly talked about my recruitment and how it was going.”

Despite his commitment to South Carolina, Davis is still exploring his options. Davis also holds offers from Auburn, Boston College, Duke, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

“I’m committed, but I’m keeping everything open,” Davis said. “It’s a big decision, so I don’t want to make the wrong one.”

Davis admits Notre Dame is relatively unfamiliar to him.

“I really don’t know a whole lot about Notre Dame other than what happened with Manti Te’o,” Davis said. “I also know they are a great academic school and are a Catholic school.”

“A visit (to Notre Dame) is possible, but I need to learn more about them and hear more from their coaches, first.”

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete plays wide receiver for Archer, but he’s projected to develop into a tight end at the next level.

Davis has taken recent visits to Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee, but no trips are currently planned for the future.

A four-star prospect, Davis is the No. 10 ranked tight end in the class of 2016. Top Stories
