Auburn football: Tigers score big with No. 4 dual-threat commit

Auburn football just landed their first quarterback commit for the 2021 class in No. 4 ranked dual-threat Dematrius Davis.

Former Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Chad Morris has already made waves after landing one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the 2021 class. And just like that, Auburn football will have even better depth at the quarterback position.

Morris was acquired by the Tigers after a less-than-stellar coaching performance at Arkansas where he went 4-18 in two seasons. But despite his losing reputation, he certainly found a way to win here.

After signing Dematrius Davis, Auburn football ranks 21st in the college football 2021 class. But most importantly, the Tigers managed to land a shifty quarterback who can make a difference once Bo Nix decides to head to the league.

After watching his highlight tape, it’s evident that Davis fits the Tigers’ RPO-based offense. Gus Malzahn is historically known for favoring running quarterbacks- he’ll love this one.

Realistically, quarterbacks aren’t supposed to move the way that Davis moves.

But he defies all odds and embarrasses defenders along the way. His legs have totaled over 1,500 yards in high school.

Davis also has a knack for the deep ball, which he delivers on the money most of the time. During his two years with North Shore High School, he’s thrown for a total of 5,743 yards and compiled 73 touchdowns.

While the quarterback is only 6′ tall, he shouldn’t have too many issues in SEC football. His mobility and awareness allows him to roam the pocket and find ways to make throws despite his short stature.

During his time with North Shore, he’s accumulated two Texas 6A state titles and over two dozen scholarship offers from major Division 1 schools.

And thanks to the unlikely hero- Chad Morris, all of this was possible.
