Avery Davis, a multi-star, Texas recruit and a junior out of Cedar Hill High, verbally committed to the University of Notre Dame on Saturday. Davis finished last season with a sixty-five percent completion rate (128/197), twenty-two touchdowns, 1,966 passing yards, and 934 rushing yards. He runs a 4.6 forty and stands 6’0″ tall.
Lauded for his fleet feet and powerful arm, Davis presented a perfect opportunity for the Irish to prize local talent from the rich state of Texas. Because he was not the starter his sophomore year, the SouthBend Tribune’s Tyler James noted that the local schools, to include Oklahoma, secured verbals by the end of August, leaving Davis up-for-grabs, as it were.
Davis is rated a three-star prospect by Rivals and four-stars by just about everyone else, making him the the third four-star recruit in the last four recruiting classes. And speaking of four-star players, Davis’ teammate, target and early-favorite to start on Notre Dame’s 2017 All-Name squad, Charleston Rambo, a wide-receiver, visited campus Saturday as well.
Rebuilding Notre Dame’s recruiting caché in Texas is a priority for the Irish, who failed to landed any Lone Star state players in last season’s class.
