81 Days to Purdue Football: Chevin Davis

Yesterday's Nebraska entry marked my return to full-time blogging after a week and a half. Today we continue our countdown to Purdue football with another incoming freshman before getting into any other important news and discussion. Today's player is one of the most anticipated recruits in the 2009 class, and one that could see the field immediately as part of the famous Mainland Quartet.

One more example of Florida speed.

Chevin Davis -  Fr.

Hometown: Daytona, FL (Mainland HS)

Wide Receiver

6', 185 pounds

2010 Projection: Possible contributor at wide receiver

Last season we were fairly lean at the wide receiver position. This year we appear to have a ton of depth, but much of that depth comes from both true and redshirt freshmen that have not seen the field. One of those freshmen is four-star receiver O.J. Ross, but Davis, his high school teammate, could be just as good. Davis came with Ross, cornerback Ricardo Allen, and kicker Jon Linkenheimer from Mainland High in Daytona. All three came on board after visiting during last season's upset of Ohio State. He caught 28 passes for 492 yards and four touchdowns last season as a three-star commitment according to Rivals. He was also rated the 73rd best player on the Central Florida top 100.

When I wrote about Davis during his original commitment I talked about how he might be more suited as a slot receiver. That means he might see the field a little sooner as a backup to Keith Smith. Smith is expected to be unstoppable in the slot this year, but we need to have someone in reserve for him.
