Jordan Davis signed with the Crimson Tide last December as a part of the 2018 recruiting class. Unfortunately, the Memphis (Tenn.) Southwind product had to go the junior college route instead of enrolling with his fellow signees last May.
No matter, Davis plans to join them come 2020 as the former 4-star weak-side defensive end Tweeted that he is recommitting to Alabama on Saturday night.
“For one I would like to thank God for putting me in the situation I’m in,” Davis Tweeted. “This commitment will have a lot of people thinking different. But I’ve been talking to God and I have something to prove. So I would like to announce that I’m recommitting to the University of Alabama.”
Davis is currently playing out his freshman season at Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Mississippi. Through six games, the 6-foot-5, 238-pounder has 30 tackles and 1.5 sacks. He says he was receiving interest from LSU, Florida and Mississippi State, among others.
“Nothing but hard work,” Davis said of life at Co-Lin. “I’m glad I came here. My coach stays on me 24/7. Their expectation of me is very high on the team.”
Despite not considering himself a Tide commit once opting to go the junior college route, Davis told BamaOnLine earlier this summer that he still had a special place for Alabama in his heart.
“The love for the game, like when you T-Town, all you here about is football,” he said of what made him fall in love with Alabama. “Another thing is the motor they have for the players, like they’re working on and off the field to become successful men that can build their own brand. Also, another is the atmosphere, it’s just unbelievable. No matter what, you can’t go wrong with Bama.”
Davis tells BOL he keeps in frequent contact with Alabama freshmen Jaylen Waddle and Eyabi Anoma who are keeping him updated on the Tide.
The former Under Armour All-American was rated the No. 6 weak-side defensive end and the No. 108 overall player in the 2018 class, per the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings.
