59 Days to Purdue Football: Cody Davis

The parade of reserves continues as we have another player today that has yet to see the field. Cody Davis is also another player that has made the move from defense to offense. He joins a crowded bench on the offensive line, especially at his new position.

Cody Davis - Fr. (RS)

Hometown: Spring, TX (Klein Oak HS)


6'5" 277 pounds

2010 Projection: Offensive line reserve

We have quite a crowd of people competing for the open center position, so I doubt Davis is going to emerge as the winner. If anything, he can be a valuable scout team member and practice player. He was a member of Danny Hope's first recruiting class and redshirted while practicing at defensive tackle. His size clearly has him as an interior lineman.

He comes to us from suburban Houston, where he was selected to play in the Space City Classic after his senior year. He finished his career with 107 tackles, eight sacks, four pass breakups, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, two interceptions, and a pair of defensive touchdowns. That's quite the active state line for a defensive tackle. He was also an academic all-District selection during his final two years in school.

He had one game in which he really stood out during his senior season, making him the Houston Chronicle's player of the week. In a game against Klein Forest he had 10 tackles, forced a fumble, and picked off two passes that he returned for touchdowns in a 34-6 win. I wouldn't count him out as a player that eventually sees the field. He comes from a school that is used to putting players in the collegiate ranks.
