Erik Davis, a wide receiver / defensive back from Ezell-Harding, and Blake Luker, an offensive lineman from Collinwood, will represent the Tennessee squad in the 19th annual Tennessee-Kentucky All-Star Classic, set for June 14 at Tennessee's Neyland Stadium (7 p.m. EDT / 6 p.m. CDT).
Davis and Luker are among 21 high school seniors who accepted football scholarship offers from Vandy last February. They are spending this week in Knoxville preparing for the All-Star game, which is sponsored by the Tennessee Athletic Coaches Association.
Luker, a 6-5, 300-pound lineman, was an all-state selection in Class 1A who led his team to a 24-2 record his junior and senior years. He is the first player from Collinwood High School ever to sign with a Division I-A university.
Davis, an explosive 6-2, 180-pounder with 4.4 speed in the 40-yard dash, led Ezell-Harding to a perfect 15-0 record and a state championship his senior year. His senior statistics were astounding: 64 catches, 1,341 yards, 18 touchdown catches, and 6 interception returns for touchdowns. He was also an All-State selection in Class 1A.
Davis and Luker will report to Vanderbilt for fall camp in August.
Ten other SEC signees have been selected for the Tennessee team, including Chattanooga-Red Bank running back Gerald Riggs, Jr. (Tennessee), Hendersonville kicker James Wilhoit (Tennessee), Nashville-David Lipscomb quarterback Ethan Flatt (Ole Miss), and Eugene Cousart of Memphis-Whitehaven (Arkansas).
