From a numbers standpoint, the Georgia Bulldogs are looking a lot more talented in the secondary now that Jeremy Pruitt is in the fold—not that they weren’t talented before, but it’s clear the speed and ball skills of the guys they’re bringing in nowadays is a cut above what the Bulldogs had during Grantham’s tenure.
That said, because of the speed at which Pruitt wants his guys to be playing at all times, depth is equally, if not more important. So, it’s no longer a surprise when you here that the Bulldogs have targeted yet another defensive back.
Devron Davis (Merced Community College,CA) recently received an offer from Georgia and he’s excited to make a trip south to see what they have to say about his potential contributions.
“SEC ball is where it’s at,” Davis said. “It’s what the NFL pays a lot more attention to. The SEC has always been a dream for me. I’ve always wanted to play in that conference. Georgia is a big college football team in the SEC and well known.” (Jake Reuse, UGASports.com)
Judging by his statements, it’s obvious that Davis isn’t so much enamored with Georgia as he is with the SEC, but he does have ties to the state and is somewhat familiar with the Bulldogs reputation as a competitive program in the SEC; that certainly makes him interested to hear a bit more about him.
At 6’0, 210 pounds, Davis has the frame to play corner or safety and that versatility is always a plus-plus where Pruitt is concerned.
On film, two things stand out about Davis: his speed and his ball skills. He displays good instincts on the field and does a nice job tracking the ball and anticipating the direction of the ball out of the quarterback’s hands. His ability to play physically is also worth noting as the safety position is certainly an area Georgia would love to have a bit more physicality at in the future.
Davis was once committed to Louisville, but also has flirted heavily with Colorado State, and it’s obvious both Oregon and Arizona State have his attention as well.
