For the foreseeable future, Bo Nix is the starting quarterback for the Auburn Tigers. His spot is likely untouchable until he leaves, too. A backup and future plan is always needed, however, and head coach Gus Malzahn made sure to land another signal caller with game-changing potential in his next football recruiting class.
Dematrius Davis, a four-star dual-threat quarterback from North Shore High School in Houston, is committed to the Tigers. The rising Class of 2021 prospect has what it takes to be special, and his announcement on social media sent shockwaves through The Plains.
Davis still has another season of high school football left to play and a few months before National Signing Day, but that’s not going to stop fans from watching his highlights until he arrives on campus.
QB Dematrius Davis Commits to Auburn
Ranked as the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback in the country, according to the 247Sports Composite, Dematrius Davis committed to Auburn over other finalists Virginia Tech, LSU, and Texas A&M. He once committed to the Hokies, but found his perfect fit with the Tigers, offensive coordinator Chad Morris, and playing in the SEC.
Davis also fielded offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, Baylor, Florida State, Houston, Kentucky, Memphis, Miami, Nebraska, Ole Miss, SMU, and TCU, among others.
Davis became the eighth hard commit for Auburn and the fourth four-star recruit, both numbers that have since risen since his commitment. Those four-star athletes include defensive tackle Lee Hunter, running back Armoni Goodwin, and offensive tackle Caleb Johnson.
QB Dematrius Davis Highlights
At 6-foot and 190 pounds, Dematrius Davis is far from the biggest quarterback in the class, but he’s easily one of the best athletes. The North Shore star also has a big-time arm and has led his team to two Texas State championships.
Davis even went viral for his Hail Mary throw a couple of years ago.
A lot has changed during the coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19 outbreak for Davis, but he’s back scoring touchdowns for North Shore and getting ready to dominate at the NCAA college football level when his time comes.
