Four-star wideout Drake Davis commits to LSU

Wednesday February 3rd, 2016

Four-star wide receiver Drake Davis has committed to LSU, he announced in an essay for The Players’ Tribune.

Davis, a Baton Rouge native who played at IMG Academy (Fla.), was also considering Alabama.

“People have to understand: I rooted for LSU when I was little,” Davis wrote. “That 2007 National Championship? It’s basically my first real memory as a sports fan. I was only in grade school, and man…I was obsessed with that team. Matt Flynn, Glenn Dorsey, Brandon LaFell, Early Doucet—those were my guys. That team was everything to me. And when they won the championship … Wow, I can’t even explain it. I’m not sure I’ve ever been so happy in my life. To me, it was bigger than the Super Bowl.”

Davis is ranked No. 29 among receivers in the class of 2016.
