AUBURN, Ala. — Despite de-committing from Auburn in September, Stephen Davis, Jr., still views Auburn as home.
His official visit to The Plains over the weekend only reaffirmed that notion.
“It’s always great to come back and visit home,” Davis, Jr. told SEC Country. “I just love it here. You always see different things when you come to Auburn. It’s always a fantastic time here.”
Added Davis, Jr.: “I can see myself here. That’s why they’re still in my top five. I’m always enjoying it. It feels like home.”
The three-star athlete from Dutch Fork (Irmo, S.C.) says the visit was an opportunity to bond with several players, particularly outside linebacker Darrell Williams. Davis, Jr. says the Tigers staff envisions using him in a multitude of ways, much like Williams. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound prospect can flash at nickel, safety or even outside linebacker.
Davis is scheduled to take an official visit to South Carolina this coming weekend. Coincidentally, the Gamecocks’ new defensive coordinator, Travaris Robinson, was his lead recruiter during his tenure with the Tigers.
His father, Stephen, was a running back for Auburn during the 1990s.
Davis is the No. 22 athlete in the nation, and the No. 6 prospect in the state of South Carolina.
