Syracuse Football: Get To Know Your Orange Man - #26 Myles Davis

via orangefizz.net

No recruit's road to Syracuse has been longer and more obstacle-filled than Myles Davis, so it is nice to finally be able to do this profile. Let's get to know him a little bit.

Name: Myles Davis

Position: Fullback

Year: Freshman

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 232

Hometown: Verona, PA

High School: Penn Hills HS/Milford Academy

2011 Stats: N/A

2012 Projections: The unanticipated move to fullback leads me to believe that the coaching staff will give Davis every opportunity to contribute. Even if he doesn't beat out Travon Burke, Clay Cleveland, and Carl Cutler for that spot, he should help on special teams right away.

How'd He Get Here?: Davis was our first verbal commitment in the 2010 recruiting class, deciding on Syracuse on the same day as John Kinder- April 19, 2009. However, Myles was not able to come to SU right away, he had work to do academically, and enrolled in Milford Academy. Davis was, by all accounts, tearing it up on the field, with 10.5 tackles, 6.5 of them being for a loss, when in a game against Army prep, he tore his ACL. Davis' body rejected the material used in the original knee surgery, so he underwent a second surgery, which was successful. After a few long years, Davis enrolled at SU this past January, and played in spring ball.

Scout/Rivals Said: Both gave Davis three stars.

Money Quote:

"I like the fact (at Syracuse that) you get to run and make plays for yourself. Plus, you get the chance to knock somebody's head off. I love blitzing, running up there and seeing if you can get past them. I love that aspect. They were blitzing guys a lot (in the SU scrimmage). Coach Shafer was telling me that's not even the whole package. They weren't trying to show too much."

Links of Wonder: Here's a nice piece from SU Juice Online's Wesley Chang on Davis and fellow incoming freshman Devante McFarlane's versatility.

Doug Marrone Thinks:

"He worked extremely hard, and was all set to come and had a very difficult injury," Marrone said. "He was a very good linebacker and very good fullback in high school, we talked to him about playing fullback, and that’s where we expect him to play when spring ball starts."

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Despite taking a few years to matriculate to Syracuse, Davis has all four years of eligibility remaining.
