Auburn QB commit Dematrius Davis shares the latest on his recruitment following Gus Malzahn's firing
Auburn’s decision to fire head coach Gus Malzahn hasn’t impacted the commitment of its only quarterback in its 2021 class.
On Monday, 4-star quarterback Dematrius Davis confirmed that he’ll be sticking with the Tigers and that he’ll be signing his national letter of intent on Wednesday at Galena Park ISD Stadium in Houston. That’s the first day of the three-day early signing period in which recruits are able to send in their NLIs and make their commitments official.
Davis, who attends North Shore Senior High School in Houston, is the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback in the 2021 class, per the 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s been committed to Auburn since May 17, with his decision coming only 11 days after he had decommitted from Virginia Tech.
Although Auburn’s 2021 recruiting class has yet to be negatively affected by Malzahn’s firing, it didn’t have too many recruits in it before that. The Tigers have only 12 commits, which puts them at No. 43 in the 247Sports team rankings. Davis is one of five 4-star recruits in the class.
With quarterback Bo Nix set to be a junior next season, it’s possible that Davis could end up being Auburn’s future starter. That’s why it’s important the Tigers kept his commitment and will have him coming to campus next fall.
I will be Signing my NLI to Auburn University On Dec 16th. @ Galena Park ISD Stadium at 10:30am CST #WDE
