Calling Card: CB Tony Davis

With a shift back to corner, Tony Davis talks about the move from safety, his own health, filling the void of Sean Lee and Justin King, A.J. Wallace's health and more on Tuesday's teleconference call.

Tony Davis took some time to field questions on the team and his own progress this spring as he makes the transition from safety back to his old position of corner. Davis talks about a variety of Penn State spring football topics, from his own position shift and Michael Mauti's move to safety to the progress of the defense and the battle between Daryll Clark and Pat Devlin, and more.

On the move to corner:

The shift has been going great for Davis - he loves being back at corner. He is not sure if he will stay there, that will likely be determined in the preseason. Corner was the first position he played as a kid -- he loves it. Last year was the first time he played safety.

On what led to the shift back to the corner:

He is not sure. It was Joe Paterno's call - he came out one day and moved him over. He loves playing corner and stressed this several times throughout the interview.

On the current nickelback situation:

They do not play nickel during the spring. It is a role he could play, but he is not sure how they will set up the scheme.

On his role in the secondary this year:

To come in and play where they need him. He is looking to provide whatever the coaches ask of him.

On his own health:

He had a shoulder injury last season and started feeling 100% right around start of spring. He had a lot of rest and rehab. But he is 100% and feels very good now. He participate in winter session since they have no contact.
