Over the past two years, few running backs in America have been as productive as Katy High School (Texas) star Seth Davis.
As a sophomore, the 5-foot-8, 175-pound defenseman rushed for 1,625 yards and 17 touchdowns.
He was even better last fall, rushing for 2,422 yards and 28 touchdowns while averaging more than 10 yards per carry.
After commit (and disengagement) from Duke this spring, Davis is set to announce his final engagement on May 23 at 7 p.m. local time (5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET) and is down to a final five from California, State from Mississippi, Missouri, Utah and Vanderbilt.
Regardless of where he ends up, Katy’s playmaker noted, he intends to enroll early to help his college program of choice.
Over the weekend, Davis gave his thoughts on each of his finalists ahead of his big commitment.
Here’s what the Texas all-state running back had to say:
California: “I like the coaching staff at Cal and the academics. They are top notch. That’s why I like them so much.”
Mississippi State: “I like the city. I visited it. The city, the coaches, the football team… when I did my visit and went to one of the spring training sessions, they welcomed me in. All the running backs came and introduced It was a good time.
Missouri“It’s a great SEC school, and I’ve known the running backs coach for a while. We already had a good relationship. I really like that.”
Utah: “It’s an excellent running back school, which puts them in my top right away. I love the coaches. We have a very good relationship.”
Vanderbilt“I like the coaches and the city. Nashville, Tennessee is a great city. And it’s in the SEC. I saw the city and the facilities and it was really cool.”
