Jordan Davis quickly became a fan favorite at Georgia because of his lovable personality, but also his performance and production as a mammoth defensive tackle who could run down skill players.

Before Davis leaves for the NFL Draft this spring, he wrote an emotional letter to the Georgia community, and thanked his coaches, teammates, family and the fans. Davis noted that he committed to Georgia on Nov. 16, 2017, and that’s when his life changed forever.

“As I sit here now, and reflect upon the past 4 years, I can confidently say I have accomplished everything I had set out to do on that day 5 years ago,” he wrote.

Davis closed the letter by saying, “As I head off into the NFL, please know the University of Georgia will be in my heart every step of the way.”

Davis was named to the Associated Press and Coaches’ All-SEC 1st Team. He was a finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and for the Lott IMPACT Trophy, and named one of 4 permanent team captains, as voted by teammates. He finished with 32 total tackles, including 5.5 for a loss, and 2 sacks.
