The USF class of 2011 is just a few days away from arriving on campus and USFNation had a chance to catch up with the incoming signees and their plans since National Signing Day. One of those signees is running back Willie Davis from powerhouse Stephenson High School in Georgia. Davis had a solid season for Stephenson last year, accounting for 968 rushing yards on 119 carries with 10 touchdowns (8.0 avg.), and also added 10 catches for 73 yards. Davis talks about his past summer, the Bulls increased presence in Georgia amongst other things. Check out the interview here.
USFN: How has your summer been going so far?
WD: It's been going good, just preparing to come down there!
USFN: Have you been using the USF workout plan and how has that been going for you?
WD: Yes sir, I have been using it this summer but more in the spring after we signed. I've basically been working out with one of my strength and conditioning coaches. I've just been trying to work and come down there and be in shape.
USFN: What's your current height and weight?
WD: I'm 5'10" 190 lbs.
USFN: Being from Georgia, have you noticed the USF brand increasing in the State of Georgia?
WD: Yes sir, I've been noticed that. Everybody knows that South Florida is on the rise and we're on the verge of something special this upcoming season.
USFN: What were some of the reasons you chose USF?
WD: I chose USF because it was the best situation for me. I can come down there in Tampa and establish myself. The campus, the facilities and I like the team overall.
USFN: With a few days before you enroll, how exciting is it to finally be joining the Bulls family?
WD: It's really exciting; I can't wait to get home.
USFN: As an offensive player, what type of defense do you like to see when you get to the line of scrimmage?
WD: Basically, I don't mind any defense. I feel like I can be successful against any of them.
USFN: What's your favorite offensive play to run?
WD: My favorite play to run is power off tackle.
USFN: What are some of your strengths as a player?
WD: Well, I don't really have a lot of weaknesses. I have power, I have speed, and the ability to run over you, through you and around you.
USFN: What are some things you want to improve on?
WD: Instead of running through DBs, I want to run past them. When I get into the open field I'm speedy so I want to work on not being so overaggressive.
USFN: Is there a player at the college or pro level that you try to model your game after?
WD: Well one player that I really like and have admired and modeled my game after is deceased. Everybody knows that's Walter Payton. He's the best that ever did it.
USFN: Before you get on campus, what is a message you want to leave for Bulls fans?
WD: Just to expect great things from me, within the coming years we'll be competing for BCS titles, winning the Big East first and going to BCS bowl games.
