75 Days To Purdue Football: Josh Davis

Yes, we return four starters on the offensive line and Rick Schmeig  also returns as an experienced backup to fill in as the fifth starter. We still need depth behind them in case of injuries, which rarely happen with this team will most assuredly come along. That is where redshirt freshman Josh Davis comes in. Davis was able to hang on to his redshirt last season, and he moves to the offensive line after being primarily a defensive lineman in high school.

Josh Davis - Fr.

Hometown: Plain City, OH (Jonathan Alder HS)

Offensive Tackle

6'5, 300 pounds

2011 Projection: Reserve at offensive guard

Davis comes out of his redshirt year having put on about 15 pounds of muscle. He is expected to be like Schmeig in terms of versatility. I look for him to be able to play both guard spots as well as center if necessary. He was also labeled as a tackle last year, so he could play all over the place. He comes off as a kid that enjoys being coached. He wants to lead on and off the field while following his coaches. This is the type of player that can emerge as a strong player in the future.
