It’s time to jump on the Jaylin Davies bandwagon.
After committing to the Ducks over the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas, USC, Utah, UCLA, and Washington, among others, Davies decided to enroll early and kick off his career at Oregon a semester early. This would not only be good for him in the short-term, but it could also supplant him on the two-deep for years.
Davies is a top-150 recruit from Santa Ana, Calif., and he has impressive size at the position, standing 6-foot-1 and 165 pounds. He’s an aggressive cornerback with a fair amount of athleticism and with a potential spot up for grabs in the secondary, he could become a star sooner rather than later.
Oregon has Mykael Wright starting on one side and DJ James looks to be the other starter, but there’s going to be an all-out war for that spot. Battling it out with James this spring will be Trikweze Bridges, Dontae Manning, and Davies.
If all goes as planned for the young cornerback, he’ll at least crack the two-deep rotation by the start of fall camp and he could turn some heads in the spring game.
