During his career at Stanford Dudchock saw action in 16 games. He was redshirted as a freshman, played in seven games as a sophomore. As a senior Dudchock caught five passes for 43 yards. Three of those catches came against Notre Dame. Stanford rarely threw to tight ends during the 2013 season.
During his high school career at Oak Mountain High School in Birmingham, Ala., Davis caught 33 passes as a junior and 26 as a senior. He was named to the Top Metro Super Seniors team as a senior. In high school Dudchock, who rated a 3-star prospect on Scout.com, had offers from Florida State, Auburn, Wake Forest, Southern Mississippi, in addition to Vanderbilt and Tennessee.
In in interesting twist, Dudchock had committed to Bobby Johnson's staff in May of 2009 but made the switch to Stanford in November. At the time Dudchock explained his switch to the Bootleg.com:
"It was the right choice for me at the time," Dudchock said. "The coaches at Vanderbilt are great people. I have a good relationship with Coach Cain, the tight ends coach. The offensive line Coach Caldwell recruited me and he's great individual along with Coach Cain. Head Coach Bobby Johnson is a great man and he's a great leader."
Dudchock is the second graduated player from the state of Alabama to transfer to Vanderbilt this year. The Commodores also got LSU quarterback Stephen Rivers (Athens, AL) who will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Excited to start grad school and play football at Vanderbilt University next year! Thankful for a new opportunity and ready to get to work!— Davis Dudchock (@DavisTheDude) June 16, 2014
