59 Days To Purdue Football: Cody Davis

A possible starter on the offensive line headlines today.

Experience on the offensive line will be critical for Purdue in 2013. I have talked quite a bit about the freshmen coming out of redshirt, but depth from older players is also critical. That is where today's player factors in.

Cody Davis - Sr.

Spring, Texas (Klein Oak HS)

6'5", 286 pounds

Center

2013 Projection: Possible starter

Cody Davis is a player that fills a big need for Purdue this year. He is a 5th year player that can play a variety of positions on the offensive line and has a lot of experience. He didn't play until the 2011 season, where he was in the first four games of the season as a reserve. He was named as an academic all-Big Ten selection as well, majoring in sociology.

He repeated his Academic all-Big Ten selection last season with another solid year in the classroom. He was also a key reserve that played at both the guard and center positions. That experience can carry over to this year, where Purdue must replace starters Peters Drey and Rick Schmeig.

Trevor Foy, Devin Smith, and Kevin Pamphile look to be locked in as starters, but Davis will fight to start at one of the guard spots or possibly at center. Robert Kugler may have the center position locked down, however. Regardless, Davis' experience will be a major asset in coach Hazell's first year.
