Three-star athlete Stephen Davis Jr. has a secret commitment, but he’s not quite ready to reveal to whom he has made that promise.
According to a report from The State’s Phil Kornblut, Davis has made up his mind on which college to attend and will enroll at a four-year school sometime between June 25 and July 1.
But he’s not interested in revealing where that school may be before then.
“I can’t tell you that,” Davis reportedly told Kornblut on Tuesday night. “I’ve got to keep it a secret. I want to play offense but hopefully they put me where they think I’m going to ball at and I’m going to get ready to go.”
“I’ve been talking to the coaches and they told me to leave it low-key,” he said. “And I’ve been talking to my dad and he told me to leave it low-key. Me being the person that I am, I’m not really a person that likes to talk too much. I just left it alone and listened to them and I’m just going to keep it low-key.”
The son of former Auburn and NFL RB Stephen Davis, who is a member of the Class of 2016 for recruiting purposes, chose not to sign a national letter of intent back in February due to what AL.com’s Wesley Sinor reported as a “family issue.”
The younger Davis was committed to play for the Tigers from August 2014 until Sept. 2015, but a season-ending knee injury reportedly required surgery on his ACL and MCL and threw a wrench into his recruiting.
Aside from Auburn, the home-state South Carolina Gamecocks are believed to be another program interested in the 6-foot-4, 215-pound product of Dutch Fork High. Kornblut reported that Davis said he was academically qualified for freshman eligibility.
Davis rated as the No. 20 athlete in the country and the No. 7 player in the state of South Carolina, according to the 247Sports composite rankings for the 2016 recruiting class.
