2013 BYU Football Newcomers: Michael Davis


Here at Lawless Republic we will be profiling all the 2013 signees & return missionaries who will be joining the BYU Football team this season.  This will be a daily feature on the site as we count down to Fall Camp.

 

Michael Davis

Glendale, CA; Glendale HS   

6-2, 180

Before BYU: Davis was a first-team All-Pacific League receiver. In his senior year he had 33 catches, 409 yards and three touchdowns, rushed 39 times for 258 yards and two scores, also returned 13 kicks for 394 yards, including a 99-yard return. Davis caught 52 passes for 857 yards and seven touchdowns and returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in 2011. He also played defensive back for Glendale High, recording 45 tackles as a senior, and also ran the 100-meters in 10.67 seconds and 200-meters in 21.4 seconds and finished seventh at the California state championship.

After watching the highlight film of Davis, he reminds me of Ross Apo coming out of high school. Similar builds and both look very similar in the run of play. Davis is very quick, but makes it looks effortless on the field.

Expectations in 2013: Backup who sees some ‘clean-up’ time.

Davis seems like a ‘project’ type player. But I wouldn’t be surprised to see him play this season. If BYU has the offense rolling how Anae wants it, there will be plenty of time for Davis to play late in games.

The potential in BYU career: Moderate.

I see Davis as a guy who has the ability to do some great things at BYU. I compared him to Ross Apo and I see his career playing out pretty similarly.

    Why would you think his career will play out much like Ross Apo? I think with better QB and O-line play both Apo and Davis have the opportunity to succeed, but all things being equal, why would a guy like Davis be pegged only for ‘moderate’ success? Is it because BYU’s offense isn’t built for the long ball, so a guy like Davis isn’t called upon as often?
