Why so early?
"Ole Miss is just in my blood. It is family. I had an uncle,
Lew Davis, who played there, and I have had a couple of cousins play there. I
am also real close with the staff, and I just feel at home there. It's just the
place for me," added Ken Davis.
The 6' 2", 215 pound bruising
tailback with breakaway speed recently receive a new scholarship offer despite
his solid commitment to the Rebels.
"Alabama offered me in March.
They said I was the number one back on their board and they are going to recruit
me until the very end."
Will Ken listen to what the Tide has to say?
am never going to say never, but it is going to take a whole lot to get me away
from Ole Miss. I am solid with my commitment."
The Rebels have certainly
not taken Davis' commitment for granted.
"They were the first ones
to call me this week. Coach Freeze called the first day they could call. He called
me early, like 6:30 in the morning (laugh). He told me that I needed to come by
the school and just hang out for a day. I am going to try and get over there pretty
Davis was on his way to setting several school records at Tupelo
last season when he rushed for nearly 900 yards and 10 TD's in the rugged 5A during
the first 4 1/2 games. Then the injury came.
"It was tough. I am not
going to lie. I am just happy I did not tear anything and have to have surgery.
It was just a severe ((MCL) sprain."
Ken has felt healthy enough that
he is now running track.
"I qualified for state in the long jump,
4 by 100, and 100 meter race, but I pulled a hamstring so I am not sure I am going
to be able to run the 100 and 4 by 100 this Saturday. I will do the long jump
for sure though."
How far back does Ken feel from his injury?
am doing good, man. I do not know if it is a 100% because I have not been hit
on it, but I am not limping or anything. I go full speed ahead in track."
has had well publicized troubles with his grades while he was an underclassmen,
but hopefully Davis' recent success in the classroom is the start to the road
to becoming a full qualifier.
"It is coming along good. I am ready
to wrap it up. I am going to take some correspondence classes this summer, and
I should be ready to go next May. I am taking the ACT test in June, so hopefully
I will get that out of the way."
