THE PLAYER SPEAKS | Sounds like you can thank Darrin Chiaverini (via LAJ):
"Coach Chiaverini actually used to coach at the JC I’m going to," Davis said. "He came late. It kind of seemed right to go ahead and go there and give it a chance. It was the last trip and I had all these other schools that were wanting me to go this weekend – Cal, Louisiana Tech, Purdue and Cincinnati."
All four of those programs had extended scholarship offers in addition to Fresno State, San Diego State, Colorado State and Florida Atlantic. Davis, who will have two years to play two seasons, sat down with offensive line coach Lee Hays to learn what’s expected of him in 2014.
"I had a nice little meeting with him, and we went over the film from last year and he showed me some things," Davis said. "He wants me to compete for a tackle spot and he wants me to come in and compete right away so I can start."
SCOUTING REPORT | I think this is a pretty good guard pick up for Texas Tech. Davis isn't highly rated at all, but the one thing that you have is a guy that's probably very familiar with Davis in new special teams coach Darrin Chiaverini. Davis plays left tackle for his JUCO team and mentions that OL coach Lee Hays wants him at tackle, but I really could see Davis adding some depth at guard. At only 6'4", which is always funny to type since I'm 5'9", it seems like he could really excel inside, especially given his athleticism. Davis sets up as a wide base and he moves his feet well. Davis really doesn't get to exhibit much nastiness in terms drive blocking as his JUCO team seems to pass the ball quite a bit. Davis does stick with plays and I suppose the biggest question is his strength.
Shaquille, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
