View Full Profile has returned from a two month visit to Japan where he tried to soak up all the culture, language and arts that the country had to offer him.
On his visit, he traveled on buses to lift and break down tape with the Ritsumeikan University football team, played club soccer and also took classes in Japanese language and culture.
Being immersed in the culture was a big thrill, and so was helping out the football team. He was given the coveted No. 52 jersey, an honored number. Davis helped teach the team about fundamentals and certain plays run in America. He learned certain plays specific to Japanese football. Ritsumeikan does not run a hurry-up. Instead, it is a power-heavy offensive team. So Davis spent time breaking down game tape of Stanford's offensive line against Notre Dame. He also watched most of Clemson's games from last season with the team.
