Notable
Wayne Davis is the state of Virginia's Gatorade Player of the Year (for athletic excellence, academic achievement and exemplary character), its Associated Press player of the year and a consensus 4-star prospect by Rivals, Scout and 247Sports ... he is considered among the Top 25 cornerbacks in the nation by Scout (No. 22) and Rivals (No. 25) with Top 40 status by 247Sports and ESPN ... selected first-team 4A all-state as both a defensive back and a receiver as a senior, Davis had 43 tackles and seven interceptions -- five of which he returned for touchdowns -- on defense and 41 receptions for 731 yards and six touchdowns on offense ... after winning the Virginia 4A state title (14-1) in 2014, Davis and Lake Taylor, coached by Hank Sawyer, missed out on a repeat title in 2015 by losing to Salem, 17-14, in two overtimes in the championship game, snapping Lake Taylor's 29-game winning streak in the process ... Davis had five interceptions and broke up 22 passes, plus caught 31 passes for 733 yards and nine touchdowns, as a junior and earned all-state honors ... former teammate of current Buckeye defensive end Jalyn Holmes at Lake Taylor ... is the son of Takecia Taylor and Corry Cartwright.

Scouting Report
A playmaker with the ball in his hands. Stocky cornerback with long arms, allows him to be physical at the right times. Will need to show he can play press man.

Immediate Projection
There will be a role for a tenacious freshman defensive back on special teams, just like there was for Denzel Ward in 2015. Can Davis be that guy?
