Auburn, Ole Miss have the attention of 2017 Louisiana wide receiver
LUTCHER, La. — Auburn secured a commitment from Lowell Narcisse, the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation, this summer. Could one of his crosstown rivals be on the way?
Narcisse quarterbacks St. James High School, while Al’dontre Davis plays wide receiver for archrival Lutcher High School.
But the two could team up — eventually — at Auburn.
Auburn extended an offer to Davis on Thursday and already has the attention of the 3-star athlete ranked No. 22 in Louisiana’s 2017 recruiting class.
“Yeah, it’s a thing that me and Lowell want to start coming out of the River Parishes,” Davis said.
As far as playing at Auburn alongside Narcisse, Davis said: “Yeah, it’s a big possibility. It’s very good because we both fit into that spread offense and we can both dominate.”
Auburn offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Rhett Lashlee has recruited Davis, who plans to visit the university but does not have a specific date scheduled yet.
Auburn is the third SEC school to offer Davis, along with UGA and Ole Miss.
In addition to Auburn, Davis is intrigued by Ole Miss, largely because of how he fits in the Rebels’ spread offense.
“I like that it would give me that push to touch the ball more, and I’m that type of wide receiver,” Davis said. “I also like the coaches and the facility.”
Davis added that he’s been in contact with Ole Miss wide receivers coach Grant Heard the most and plans to visit Ole Miss, too.
