MERCED, Calif. – According to his Twitter account, Missouri football has offered Junior College Devron Davis

Davis is 6-foot, 210 pounds and is ranked as the No. 5 JUCO cornerback in the 2016 class, according to the industry generated 247Sports Composite. 247Sports, and the composite, considers him to be a 3-star; though he says in his Twitter profile that he’s a 4-star athlete. Davis plays for Merced College, and boast offers from multiple other major football programs, including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Utah and Louisville.

With the addition of Mizzou, Davis now has 28 offers. He’s planning on announcing his Top 6 later on this week.

Davis plays defensive back for the Blue Devils, who are currently 2-3 on the season. According to stats on the Mercer college website, the newly offered Missouri target has notched 20 tackles, one interception, 3 pass break-ups and 1 forced fumble so far this year.

When watching his HUDL highlights, it’s easy to see his explosion as an athlete and why so many major programs have offered him so far. As a cornerback, he has very good size and gets an extremely quick break on the ball. He has solid footwork and is fast to come down hill and play physical at the line of scrimmage. Davis also has the agility and speed to flip his hips and run vertical with a route, and he plays the ball like a safety in the air—a true ball hawk.

Take all of the aforementioned qualities and it should make it easy to imagine Davis as a dynamic kick returner as well, and his highlights boast examples of him making multiple big plays as a kick and punt returner.

Overall it’s easy to see why Missouri offered Davis, and it’s safe to bet the Tigers won’t be the last major program to jump on his offer sheet.
