Hometown: Stone Mountain,
GA (Stephenson HS)
According to the AJC:
Mike Davis, a budding star at Stone Mountain’s Stephenson High School, committed to the Gators on Saturday while touring the Gainesville, Fla., campus with several of his teammates.
“I’m standing in The Swamp right now,” said Davis, referring to Florida’s Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. “I’m standing on the F. This is great.”
Davis was asked why he felt compelled to go ahead commit with nearly a year to go until national signing day 2012.
“I just felt at home here,” he said. “I talked to all the coaches and they told me everything I needed to know about the school and their system. So I wanted to go ahead and make my mind up and get on with it.”
Mike Davis rushed for about 1,200 yards and 13 touchdowns last season while sharing time with teammate Willie Davis at running back.
