The 6-foot-1, 218-pounder shared a statement in that tweet that he was happy to be a Tiger and that he would not grant any interviews.
His high school team, also known as the Tigers, is currently alive in the third round of the Georgia state playoffs. Davis will enroll early at Auburn in January, which will allow him a great chance to play early as a freshman.
Davis was named the MVP of Nike’s all-star 7-on-7 tournament at The Opening back in July. He becomes Auburn’s 16th commitment for the Class of 2016. The senior is now considered the second-highest rated commitment on the Auburn board.
The Archer standout took an unofficial visit to UGA for the Georgia Southern game last week. His official visit to UGA was for the Alabama game earlier this year. Despite his status as the nation’s top-rated receiver, it never appeared UGA was recruiting him as hard as a few other targets at the position.
Davis de-committed from South Carolina earlier this year. He has 47 catches for 773 yards and six touchdowns through 12 games this fall. That’s an average of 16.4 yards per reception.
