Davis snaps to it at Georgia Military

The art of long-snapping goes overlooked by fans, but coaches across the country know the value of having consistency at that spot. One of the top JUCO prospects at this all-important position is Barry Davis (6-3, 235) and he's already getting some looks from several four-year schools…

Davis prepped in Georgia and needed to find a place to continue his football career when he was unable to qualify for a scholarship.

"The coaches here at Georgia Military talked to me about playing because their two long-snappers didn't really pan out," Davis told JCFootball.com recently. "They gave me a look there and liked my consistency and my snap times and thought I could do pretty well and I had a pretty good year."

Davis regularly snaps the 15-yard distance to the punter is .67 or .68 seconds (which is considered very good) and had seven tackles (three solo), two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery as a freshman last year for the Bulldogs.

Because of that success, he's getting attention from several four-year schools, although none have extended offers.

"The LSU coaches told me they are very interested in me," Davis said. "Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Oregon State all talked to me during the spring and Middle Tennessee did too.

"South Alabama and Georgia Southern said they are looking for a long-snapper, so they could be options too."

Davis has been hard at work in the classroom trying to make sure he'll be ready to sign with a school in December. Wherever he ends up, he'll have three years to play two once he steps on campus.
