Scouts: Davis rising up RB rankings

Four-star Mike Davis (Stone Mountain, Ga./Stephenson) showed during his senior season and on the post-season all-star game stage that he should be considered one of the more physical and well-rounded backs in this 2012 class.

The Gamecocks are getting an RB with very good size, power and balance needed to run between the tackles in the SEC and be productive from a yards after contact standpoint while remaining durable.

Not a speed guy or a real open-field threat but a projected three-down back who can run, block and catch the football out of the backfield. Davis is a prospect rising up our board heading into signing day and is a very good out-of-state get by South Carolina.
