Hometown: Fort Washington, Maryland
High School: Friendly HS
How he got to College Park
Davis starred at Friendly High School in Prince George’s County, where he was an honorable mention for the small school All-State team. He was a two-star recruit, the nation’s No. 224 cornerback and the No. 54 player in Maryland according to the 247Sports Composite.
He had offers from Temple and Coastal Carolina, but attended Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College instead. After redshirting, Davis made 19 tackles in 11 games as a freshman. Last year, he walked on at Maryland and earned a scholarship a few weeks before the season started.
Davis had seven tackles in back-to-back games against Nebraska and Rutgers.
Davis started the first game of the last season after JC Jackson missed it due to an academic issue, and he started three more games. This experience should give him a leg up on the competition heading into the season, as he should start either across from Jackson or at nickel in the Terps’ season opener against Texas.
Davis stays healthy and starts every game, helping Maryland’s secondary improve. He also improves his play, forming one of the best cornerback duos in the Big Ten with Jackson heading into 2018.
This Maryland native was recruited as a wide receiver before switching to cornerback last season.
Scaletta, jatk13 and Terpluvian are all on the board this week.
