Bio

If there are going to be big plays made in the passing game in 2014, expect Davis to be prominent in a lot of them. A big (6-3, 210) receiver with plenty of speed and athleticism, Davis will be an honor candidate heading into the 2014 season and should be this team’s man receiving option on nearly every passing down after being named to the All-Mountain West second team in 2013.

High School

Was a standout athlete at North Shore High School in Galena Park, Texas, where he played tight end for three years. Averaged more than 20 yards per catch as a senior and helped team to the district title. Was also an all-district and all-state performer in the triple jump for the track team, as well as a contributor to the basketball team.

College

Opened his career at UNLV early, earning a letter as a true freshman after playing in 11 games, including three starts, in 2011. Davis recorded four catches for 42 yards as a frosh. Things got far more interesting in 2012 as he led the team with 61 catches for 854 games in 13 starts. He grabbed at least five catches in eight games his sophomore year and was second in the Mountain West at 65.7 yards per game. But that was just a warm-up for a breakout 2013 season. He would catch 87 passes for 1,290 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2013. He had seven or more catches in nine of 12 games and surpassed the 140-yard mark four times. He had a monster outing in the regular season finale against San Diego State, recording 8 catches for 171 yards and four touchdowns. Davis finished the season with a 10-catch, 96-yard outing in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
