The USF class of 2011 has arrived on campus and USFNation had a chance to catch up with the incoming signees and their plans since National Signing Day. In our last entry we spoke with Lowndes High School Cornerback Kenneth Durden.
In this entry we spoke with Jefferson High School wide receiver Andre Davis. Davis was an honorable mention All-American and three-time all-state selection. He posted 164 receptions for 3,158 yards (19.3 ypc) and 40 TDs during his three-year career. As a senior Davis was named first-team all-state, first-team all-conference and first-team all-county, and led Jefferson to the 3A state championship. He tallied 62 catches for 1,286 yards (20.7 ypc) and 12 TDs and posted five 100-yard receiving games. He earned 11 varsity letters during his prep career and was a two-time member of the Honor Roll.
How has your summer been going?
Things are going pretty good, I'm just getting ready for school and working out. That's pretty much it.
Have you been using the USF workout plan?
Yeah I have my workout plan. It's pretty good! It's similar to my high school workouts but it's a bit more detailed but it's all pretty familiar.
What is your current height and weight?
I played last year at 6'1" 187 lbs but now I'm 198 lbs.
What were some of the reasons you chose USF?
I knew they had a need for receivers. All around it was a good fit for me, from the academic advisors, the players, the coaches; it all felt like one big family. It was the right choice for me.
How does it feel to finally be enrolling?
It's really exciting; I'm ready to get in there and compete.
What are your immediate goals once you get on campus?
My immediate goals are to earn a starting position. I want to get on the field early.
As an offensive player, is there a certain defense you like to see when you get to the line of scrimmage?
I like seeing man coverage. I like to go against man, but when I'm out there running routes with Coach and going over the offense I think I'm going to like seeing Cover-2.
What is your favorite play to run?
I don't have any specific play I like to run, I like to run everything.
What are your strengths as a player?
I have good ball skills, I run good routes and I have good hips.
What are some things you need to improve on?
Probably everything. I want to sharpen up all of my skills.
Is there a player on the college or pro level that you try to model your game after?
No, I don't model my game after anyone. I play like myself.
What is a message you want to give the fans for this upcoming season?
It's going to be a good season for us, we have a good team and we're going to turn some heads this year.
