Name: Dakota Davis
Position: Offensive Guard
Year: (Redshirt) Freshman
Hometown: Mount Airy, Md.
High School: Glenelg
2017 Statts: Redshirt season, but he was selected to the ACC Academic Honor Roll, so there’s that.
2018 projections: I’m not expecting much out of Davis this season. He may see a few appearances here and there, but not as a starter with a group of veteran linemen in front of him.
How’d he get here: He received offers from UConn, Air Force and Ohio, so the Syracuse Orange were a pretty logical choice.
What’d recruiting sites say?: 3-stars!
Money Quote: That does seem... fun. (from a chat he had with the Baltimore Sun while he was still in high school)
“Yeah, well, this is all downhill-type of football and I’ll throw a body on someone if I have to. It’s fun to pancake people and break other people’s will play after play.”
Tweets of wonder: More of a retweeter than a tweeter, but here’s what Dino had to say about him.
Crab Cakes and Pancakes, this Maryland O Lineman is big time! #OITNF #Commit2Cuse @dakotadavis56 pic.twitter.com/W5x2flDB98— Dino Babers (@CoachBabersCuse) February 1, 2017
What movie would Dino recommend for him: The 1945 Western, “Dakota,” stars John Wayne. Never seen it, but if it has John Wayne I’m sure it’s a movie you should watch.
Interesting nugget o’interest: After he graduates, Davis wants to become a physicians assistant, per an interview with the Baltimore Sun.
Let’s get a good look at you: No video from his freshman year, so here are some highlights from the Washington D.C. Nike Opening event.
