After a wild January for Raekwon Davis, the craziness has finally officially ended.
Davis, a four-star defensive tackle from Meridian (Miss.) High School, officially signed his letter of intent to play college football for the Crimson Tide.
The 6-foot-7, 327-pounder reaffirmed his commitment to Alabama last week after his status with the Crimson Tide remained uncertain.
To catch everyone up on what you may have missed with Davis’ recruitment: Three weeks ago, Davis told SEC Country through his Twitter account that he had flipped from Alabama to Mississippi State, shortly after being on an official visit to Starkville, Miss. Dan Mullen then tweeted out, through his verified Twitter account, that the Bulldogs picked up a commitment around this time.
A couple of hours later on the phone, Davis told us that he was committed to Alabama. He changed his Twitter bio from ‘Committed to MSU’ to ‘Committed to Bama.’ Davis claimed his Twitter was hacked.
Even after Davis solidified his commitment last week, there was still some chatter that he may end up signing with the Bulldogs. As of a few weeks ago, the U.S. Army All-American had not met all qualifications in order to enroll. There’s still a good possibility that Davis enrolls in junior college before starting his career at Alabama.
The addition of Davis is big for the Crimson Tide as the depth on the defensive line is questionable. As a senior, he had 55 tackles, 12.5 of those for loss and 8.5 sacks.
Davis was rated as the nation’s No. 11 defensive tackle in the class of 2016, per the 247Sports composite.
