Running back Stephen Davis Jr. had originally transferred from Auburn back in May. Despite a transfer restriction, Davis decided to head to South Carolina in attempt to join former Auburn assistant Will Muschamp.
According to The State, Davis — who walked-on with South Carolina after transferring to get around the restriction — has now left the Gamecocks football team for undisclosed reasons.
Davis, originally a four-star defensive player in high school, was recruited by Muschamp in 2015 when he was back at Auburn. Davis was switched to the offensive side of the ball soon after he arrived, and he decided to transfer after he had fallen behind several running backs in the Auburn rotation.
Despite walking on, Davis still would have had to sit out the 2017 season due to the NCAA’s transfer rules.
Davis is the son of former 3-time Pro Bowler Stephen Davis Sr., who played for the Redskins, Panthers and Rams in his NFL career. Davis Sr. rushed for over 1,300 yards in a season four times in his NFL career, finishing with over 8,000 career yards and 65 touchdowns.
