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.
Davis’ highlights below:
Hating Hurricanes Since 1990.
Bayou Irish is a Jersey boy and Double Domer who fell under New Orleans' spell in 1995. He's been through Katrina and fourteen years in the Coast Guard, so we cut him some slack, mostly in the form of HLS-subsidized sazeracs. But, when he's not face down on the bar and communing with the ghosts of Faulkner and Capote at the Carousel Bar in the Hotel Monteleone, he's our man in SEC-land, doing his best to convince everyone around him that Graduation Success Rate is a better indicator of success than the number of MNC's won in the last five years.
