Mike Leach And Mississippi state personnel added some offensive firepower outside Lone Star State on Monday evening. Katie (Texas) running back Seth Davis called for the Bulldogs as the fourth pledge of the class for the SEC West program.
Davis is a dynamic backbone for one of the largest powerhouse programs in the state of Texas. At 5-feet-9 and 165 pounds, Davis features a small frame but carries the burden for a strong Tiger offense.
The new Mississippi State Committee made a total of 4,209 yards and 46 touchdowns on the ground during its sophomore and junior seasons in the Greater Houston area. His playmaking ability caught the eye of programs from coast to coast, and Davis was initially committed to the Duke before reopening his assignment.
In the end, the greed to play at the SEC and Leach’s Air Raid offense won for Texas chances. Davis is considered an ideal fit for Starkville’s pass-heavy scheme because of his skate-back style of play and ability to move with the ball.
Davis has tremendous play-speed, as he is seen constantly exploding through running lanes and out-running defenders on their way to the last zone. Additionally, Katie posted a personal best wind-aided 10.81 100-meter as a standout junior.
Texas Native is very good at space and has shown some reverse as a receiver on the football field and camp settings. This made him a logical target for the Bulldogs staff as they sought to add playmakers to the passing game.
Running back coach Jason Washington Lead the recruitment for Davis, as the Bulldogs defeated finalists Cal, Missouri, Utah and Vanderbilt. Davis joins four-star Laurel (Miss) offensive tackle owner Ellis, three-star Lexington (Miss) Holmes County defensive end Joseph Head and three-star Bay Springs (Miss) Tyrick Jones in Mississippi State Class.
Seth Davis has been rated as a 5.6 three-star prospect by rivals.
