But his passion to "give out hits rather than get hit" is what makes him a future safety in college.
"I'll be a big part of our offense this fall, but safety is where my heart is. I'm the right size for safety and I love to hit people," said Davis.
Davis attended UCLA's Skills Camp this past weekend, and it turned out to be a good experience for him. "It went real well. I had a hard time playing corner and realized why I'm a safety now," said Davis. "The coaches were really helpful and encouraging. Coach (Karl) Dorrell came up to me and talked with me, and he had a lot going on, and he didn't have to do that, but it meant a lot to me."
Receivers coach Dino Babers is recruiting Davis for UCLA. "Coach Babers is a really cool coach. I've talked with him quite a bit. He's from San Diego, too. He's a great guy. All the coaches I've met were really cool."
"I really want to stay in California, so my top three are UCLA, USC and California. I mean, if a good opportunity comes up outside of California, I'd take it, but I want to stay out here."
During his junior campaign, Davis had 75 tackles and 7 interceptions from his safety position. With five games left, he began to see time at receiver and tallied 19 receptions for 405 yards.
Davis is doing well academically, carrying a 4.1 GPA and scoring a 990 on the old-style SAT.
