It's been 13 years since Texas A&M signed a prospect from Baytown (TX), but that drought will change…
DeAnza CB commits to WAC program
"I redshirted there in 2008 and they ended up cutting the program," Davis told JCFootball.com. "I thought I was going to just end up playing there and was happy, but after that I started to doubt if I should keep playing.
"I sat out the 2009 season, but I had a high school buddy that was a GA at DeAnza and he talked me into coming down and playing again."
Once Davis arrived, he immediately worked his way into the starting lineup and had an outstanding season, posting 35 tackles, 16 passes defensed and 8 interceptions which tied for the state lead.
"I tied for the state lead in interceptions, but I returned two for touchdowns whereas the other guy didn't have any touchdowns," Davis said. "I got All-Golden Gate Conference First Team and I also got All-State Region 2 as well."
With that productivity, Davis saw interest in him increase from a few FBS schools as well as a few FCS programs.
"Idaho and San Jose State both offered and I got offers from Southern Illinois and North Dakota State," Davis said. "Utah State had been on me for a while and they offered me this past weekend when I visited there.
"It really felt good when I was there. I just liked the whole experience. The coaches and the players were really welcoming to me and I felt like it was the right situation for me."
Davis said he remains strongly committed to Utah State, but said he will listen to anyone who wants to make an offer to him over the next nine days.
Because the program he originally signed with was cut, Davis will be able to appeal his eligibility and could end up with an extra year to play for the Aggies. However, at this point, he's a two years to play two player as soon as he arrives this summer.
