Recruiting: Bruce Davis update

Once committed to Texas, the talented Davis will now make his decision after the season.

"I had committed to Texas, but it (the whole process) was too much," Davis told HR on Wednesday afternoon. "I camped at Texas and UCLA this summer (along with Penn State) and really liked both campuses and staffs. The reason I became concerned about committing early was that I wouldn't be able to focus well enough on the upcoming season. So, I've withdrew my commitment to Texas and will decide between them and UCLA after the season is over."

Davis is the son of former UCLA Bruin, Oakland Raider and Houston Oiler great "Big" Bruce Davis.

Last season, the six-foot-four, 230-pound Davis recorded 35 tackles along with one fumble recovery, three caused fumbles, eight sacks, nine other tackles for losses and three deflected passes. He was asked about quarterback pressures.

"We didn't chart pressures, but I had a ton," he said.

Davis has a 310 lb.-bench, 465 lb.-squat, 28 inch-vertical leap and has been clocked at 4.69 in the forty. He will return at defensive end for Clear Creek Aubrey Schulz this season, but could play either DE or outside linebacker on the next level. His academics are excellent, carrying a 3.0 GPA and has already scored an 890 on the SAT, which he will retake after the season.

Bruce was asked about tough opponents he's faced.

"Two come to mind," he said. "Drew Tate (Baytown Lee) and Roshawn Pope (the Galveston Ball QB who signed with Houston) are both excellent players."

So is Davis, who is currently ranked 26th overall on the Heartland Recruiting Regional Top 160.
