On the move again: Stephen Davis Jr. has left South Carolina after arriving via Auburn
Stephen Davis Jr. is officially leaving the Gamecocks.
Davis spent last season with the Auburn Tigers where he could not find his way into the backfield rotation. He left Auburn in May and came to South Carolina as a walk-on hoping to land a spot. Stephen Jr. is the son of former Auburn and NFL running back Stephen Davis.
Unfortunately, Davis was unable to breakthrough with South Carolina. Ben Breiner of The State reported the departure.
Davis was taken off USC’s official roster and wasn’t at practice Monday. A South Carolina spokesperson confirmed the departure…The 6-foot-3, 206-pound athlete practiced with South Carolina’s running backs the last three weeks.
It was certainly a tall task for Davis coming into USC. The Gamecocks are returning their top two rushers from 2016 in Rico Dowdle and A.J. Turner. The duo combined for 1,261 yards rushing yards and 9 TDs for the Gamecocks in 2016.
It is unclear where Davis will be headed next.
