Davis on Summer Workouts

When D.J. Davis came to Oregon as part of the 2007 recruiting class there were some things different than today. First of all, everyone called D.J., Drew when he enrolled for spring term in time for the spring workouts. Now he is D.J. and a senior with four spring workouts, four summer workouts and three seasons under his belt. He's also a starting wide receiver and a leader on the team.

Davis feels this summer has had the best turnout of any he's seen since he's been at Oregon. He's one of the veterans that gets things moving for the voluntary workouts. He's also a player the younger guys can look up to. Davis has battled injury (torn knee ligaments) during his sophomore year yet he battled back and now entering his final season as a Duck is anxious to get into fall camp.

Last year Davis had 23 catches for 233 yards and two touchdowns. In the run-happy Oregon offense, that's not bad considering wide receivers have to be as good in down field blocking as they are in catching the ball. Standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 205 pounds. He's a touch guy and his Oregon record for wide receivers in the bench press (355) is a good indication of why he does so well in down field blocking.

With one more week of voluntary workouts to go, Davis talked about how the summer is going.
