Davis Hits Syracuse in January

It's been a long road for Myles Davis as he was ready to join the Class of 2011 at Syracuse before tearing his ACL and having to sit out a season and now the linebacker will spend a semester at community college to get started academically and join the Orange in January with the Class of 2012.

Myles Davis, a 6-foot-1, 225-pound linebacker originally from Penn Hills High School in Pittsburgh, Pa., is committed to be a part of the Class of 2012 for Syracuse and we spoke to him on Friday night about his road to recovery and how excited he is to get back on the field and join his future brothers at ‘Cuse.

"I'm going to be taking courses at Allegheny Community College here in Pittsburgh in either the spring or the fall and just rehabbing my knee and then I'll be enrolling early at Syracuse in January," Davis said. "I tore my ACL up at Milford and I had two surgeries already and I'm having a third at the end of this month. The first time they used a cadaver which didn't work out, so now they're putting in one of my own ligaments instead, so that's what the hold up was with me going to Syracuse this year."

"It's really hard having to wait at times and watching Syracuse play and not being able to even play was tough," Davis added. "I just had to hit the gym to keep my mind off of it and focus on getting bigger, stronger and faster to keep my right and I'll be good to go when I get up there."

We asked Davis what the plan was for him when he gets on campus.

"I'm going to be playing at linebacker, but I don't know if I'll be on the inside or the outside," Davis explained. "I'm an aggressive player and I give 110-percent every single play. I've also had a year and a half of waiting, so there won't be any snaps off when I get back on the field. I've definitely got something to prove when I get out there again. When I was at Milford I was really making a name for myself as one of the best there was and then the knee injury happened, so coming back and getting there again just makes me more hungry."
