Today we meet a local kid who is expected to have a big season this year.

#81 WR Andre Davis
Sophomore, 6'1" 200 lbs.

Stats in 2011: After a slow start to the year getting acclimated to the college game, Davis came on strong to finish the year. Davis played in 11 games last season, starting three of them after Sterling Griffin's injury. Andre had 22 receptions for 273 yards and two touchdowns while also blocking a punt and returning it for a touchdown against Florida A&M. He caught what might be the only goalline fade for a touchdown last season against Cincinnati. (Note from Jamie: Was not actually at the goal line, doesn't count.)

Current Spot on Depth Chart: Starter at wide receiver on the post-spring depth chart ahead of Sterling Griffin and Chris Dunkley.

How did he come to USF: From nearby Jefferson High School. Davis was an honorable mention All-American and was a three-time All-State selection for the Dragons. Davis led JHS to a state title his senior year, grabbing 62 balls for 1286 yards and 12 touchdowns. Davis chose USF over schools like Florida State, South Carolina, Arkansas, West Virginia, and many others.

Recruiting Rankings: Was one of the stars in Skip's first full class here at USF. Andre was a four-star recruit according to Scout (46th WR), and was given a three-star designation from Rivals (79th WR).

Projected Playing Time for 2012: If someone is going to be designated as the "USF BREAKOUT PLAYER OF THE YEAR!", it's going to be Andre. Davis had a monster spring and was deservedly named a starter following the Green and Gold game. Andre has a knack of create enough space to get open, and is the best receiver USF has in the air. I wouldn't be surprised if Andre tripled his output from last season, which would bring some single-season school records into play.
