The Miami Hurricanes have the opportunity to steal an underrated prospect from Georgia, in three-star linebacker, Thomas Davis.
The former Mississippi State commit listed the Canes in his ‘Top 3’ along with the likes of South Carolina and Florida State.
Davis originally committed to the Bulldogs back in April and quickly received an offer from one of his “dream schools” in May.
“[Miami] was one of my dream schools,” Davis recently told InsideTheU’s, Gabby Urrutia. “I never thought I would get an offer from Miami.” The three-star currently holds offers from Cincinnati, East Carolina, Tulane, Indiana and South Alabama, among others.
247Sports’ Composite pegs Davis as the nation’s No. 50 weak-side defensive end in the Class of 2021. As a junior, Davis recorded 47 total tackles, 16.5 tackles for a loss, 11.5 sacks and nine hurries for Valdosta (GA.), earning Region 1-7A Defensive Player of the Year honors.
The 6-foot-3, 235-pound defensive end/linebacker hybrid is a bulldog on the gridiron. His intensity and aggressiveness has the potential to fit in well with coach Blake Baker’s system.
Davis’ abilities are needed at the linebacker position with redshirt senior, Zach McCloud entering his final year of eligibility in 2020. If Davis decides to spend his collegiate career in Coral Gables, he’ll be teaming up with three-star linebacker, Ja’Corey Hammett, as the second linebacker in Miami’s 2021 recruiting cycle.
