As a highly recruited prospect, Devron Davis’ addition to UTSA’s roster bolsters a corner back position that is short on depth and experience. The Junior College transfer originally signed to Colorado State on National Signing Day. But Davis asked for, and was granted, his release due to personal reasons. Now, he’s a Roadrunner. Davis spoke with InsideRunnerSports following a recent practice.
Interview with UTSA CB Devron Davis
How was practice?
”It was great. It was up-tempo and live. Guys were flying around flying around having fun.”
How would you say things are going overall?
”Things are going great with the leadership of Coach Wilson and the rest of the coaches. Guys are stepping up, we’ve got competition everywhere. That’s what you like to see this time of year with football.”
How are you adapting to UTSA’s defense?
”It’s been great. With the help of my coaches and some of my teammates, they’ve been bringing me along. The adaptation part, when you love the game you can adapt to anything.”
Why did you come to UTSA?
”The coaching staff and just the players. I want to help this program win and help the team out and be a contributor to get things going in the right direction.”
You originally signed with Colorado State, but you asked to be released. What happened?
”Nothing really happened. It was just a misunderstanding. There were a lot of things behind the scenes that came out but it wasn’t anything major.”
After being released, did you have a lot of other options?
”Yes, I had a lot of schools that were contacting me, trying to get me to come on visits. But once Coach Wilson and the staff got a hold of me, I know what time it was and where I wanted to be.”
What do you see your role on the team?
”I want to help in anyway. I want to be a contributor and just help with some of the younger guys. I want to be a role model in my play and off the field with my preparation.”
How do you think the season will go?
”I feel like with this coaching staff, and with all of the good people around this program, things are going to be shocking about what’s going to come out of here. I can see nothing but great things in the future. As far as me, I just want to contribute in any way.”
