Texas A&M Football Inks Signature from Physical Safety Myles Davis

The latest signee for Texas A&M football, Myles Davis, is a pickup that should have the Maroon and White faithful pretty jazzed up. A head-to-head win over the Longhorns, I’m sure Aggie fans will be trumpeting this win to any Texas fan they can find.

Okay, I’ll stop with the puns.

Davis had Texas outlets fooled earlier this year, as many were reporting that he was a lock to commit to the Longhorns. They learned, even as Aggie fans did throughout the rest of the year, that Davis is a guy who will pull a bit of a prank on you. A joke, even. Longhorn fans watched in anticipation that quickly turned to disappointment as Davis announced for the Aggies.

Throughout the season, though, the Texas staff still tried to get Davis to flip their way. There were worries they may find a foothold as the season wore on, and especially once Fisher was fired, but Elko’s hire went a long way, in my opinion, to locking Davis in for the Aggies. According to Ryan Brauninger of Texags, the role of fellow Converse Judson graduate and former Elko player DeMarvin Leal was pretty big there as well.

Davis likes to do a bit of joking around on Twitter that had Aggie fans nervous at times and Longhorn fans optimistic he may end up in burnt orange, but he stayed the course. It’s a good thing, too—Davis is a physical safety that will definitely see some time in the Demani Richardson role on this defense. Standing at 6’1” and just under 200 LBs, Davis is a really solid player and heavy hitter out of the secondary. When he sees the field, I foresee him making some huge hits on receivers who come across the middle. I’m excited to see how he develops under Elko.
