Spring football came and went for the Knights. Over the course of several weeks, there were glimpses…
Don't Count on Davis
First, Davis is not nearly talented enough to warrant the baggage that he will come with. Davis has nice upside, but a 99 quarterback rating is not really dynamic. For George O'Leary, who is known for requiring academic excellence from his players, to let a player with grade issues into his school would be rare and the player would have to be exceptional.
More importantly, bringing in another quarterback would create logjam at the position. Davis, an upcoming sophomore, would join Rob Calabrese, Joe Weatherford and Andy Slowik in their graduating class. Throw in Nico Flores, a freshman, and L.D. Crow, who will be a junior in a year when he's eligible and you have a bevy of quarterbacks.
While none of the aforementioned names have dazzled yet, Calabrese and Weatherford had very good springs and have created enough competition at the position. Would adding Davis, whose numbers were not much more impressive than Calabrese's, really help?
The Knights also have limited scholarships, so adding another quarterback who you can't red-shirt doesn't seem to be the logical move.
With that in mind, it's difficult to see UCF having much interest in Davis, although stranger things have happened. Although it wouldn't be the worst move the team could make, the program would likely be better without him. This is all with the assumption that Davis is interested in UCF, which he may not even be. In the end, I think Davis is more likely to head to USF, and the Knights will probably be better for it.
