Football: Davis, Luker in TN-KY All-Star Classic

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).

Vanderbilt fans in the Knoxville area can get an early look at two of Coach Bobby Johnson's football signees Friday night, as well as some other future SEC stars.

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).
