Davis makes his move, commits to A&M
Jordan Davis has never been shy about how much he favors Texas A&M.2015 Clear Lake (Texas) tight end
Davis had the Aggies tied as his number one program even before he was offered. A&M joined Florida State, where Davis committed to early on in the process, at the top spot.
"I love how close A&M is to home," Davis said. "I love that they play in the SEC. You can play Alabama and LSU at their home turf and it still would not be that far away. I also like how A&M utilizes their tight ends."
Davis' area recruiter, A&M tight ends coach Jeff Banks, stopped in to see Davis during his spring ball. After that, it was only a matter of time before an offer was extended and shortly thereafter a commitment was extended right back.
"He said back during my spring ball that at the A&M camp I was going to get an offer," said Davis.
As expected, on Sunday June 9 the Aggies offered Davis after the A&M mini-camp.
"I did not really workout at the camp because of a bruised thigh," said Davis. "I did a lot of stretching and talking with the coaches. We weren't really talking a lot of football but just joking around, getting to know each other."
Davis attended the camp with his mother, father and stepmother.
Just like Davis, his father was not shy during the process showing he liked A&M. At the Manvel seven-on-seven tournament Davis' father was spotted wearing an A&M hat.
"He got the hat when we were in College Station for the spring game," Davis said. "He likes that A&M is close to home and he likes what they are doing to revamp the program."
Three nights after the A&M June 9 mini-camp, Davis decided to offically decommit from Florida State.
"It was the right thing to do," Davis said. "I was interested in other programs so I felt that it was only fair."
Davis admitted a couple of weeks prior to the decommitment, "If A&M does offer then that could be a major game changer."
Indeed so, seeing how the night after Davis decommited from Florida State he decided to make a return visit to College Station, his second visit in five days.
The Aggies showed they wanted him with an offer and Davia returned the favor.
"I decided to commit to Texas A&M," Davis said.
Davis did so while in College Station today. He said after he arrived the Aggies had an itinerary set up for him.
"We talked to the coaches and toured the school," Davis said. "I really had not seen the campus until today. We also were able to talk with a professor from the department I would like to major, physical therapy."
One topic Davis definitely wanted to discuss with the A&M coaches was playing time.
"I want to talk with them about early playing time," Davis said earlier this morning. "I do not want to redshirt. I want to contribute early."
At 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighing in at 250 lbs, Davis is a big and athletic tight end.
"I am not afraid to get dirty and block," said Davis. "I also can make plays and catch the ball well. On my high school team I am used both on the in and outside to make plays."
