A true ballhawk in the secondary, some insiders are convinced that Victor Davis has more upside than any defensive back in the Lone Star State’s 2013 class. At the time of his very early Texas A&M commitment, Davis had already picked up offers from Oklahoma State and Texas Tech and was also hearing from LSU and Alabama on a regular basis.
At 6-0 and 185 pounds, Davis plays a ferociously. He’s as dangerous in the return game as he is in the defensive backfield. He’s also a multi-sport athlete who hasn’t spent a ton of time in the weight room, so he realistically could grow into a 195- or 200-pound safety with as much range and pop as any in Texas. Long arms, excellent hips and track speed make Victor the most versatile defensive back in this year’s class. Why? Because the Aggie coaches believe he has the skill set and ability to play corner or safety at the SEC level. He’s actually very similar to current starter Deshazor Everett in that regard.
As a junior, Victor totaled 55 tackles, forced a fumble and recovered one while grabbing seven interceptions. He added four picks as a senior while earning second team All-Greater Houston honors for the second straight year. He’s also a two-time 4A Honorable Mention All-State and first team 23-4A First Team All-District choice.
