Florida football recruiting is in the midst of a big weekend of visitors on campus. They’re hosting the top running back in the country in Jerrick Gibson, and now have the 2nd-best back in the class visiting with him, who’s also a current FSU commit.

Kameron Davis is on campus this weekend for his first trip to Gainesville.

247 Sports has Davis ranked as the 32nd-best player in the country, the 2nd-best RB second only to Gibson, and the 6th-best player out of Georgia.

Davis plays quarterback in high school but will be a pure running back once he gets to the college ranks. He has a great frame for a running back, standing at 5’10”-205 pounds.

He isn’t just a bowling ball, however. His tape shows his elite ability to cut and explode in space, making defenders miss and wonder why they even tried.

Despite his future as a running back, he still had a pretty good year throwing the ball. In his junior season, he completed 164 passes for 2,736 yards, 20 touchdowns, and seven interceptions.

On the ground, he showed why he’s an elite running back prospect. He carried the ball 144 times for 1,115 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Andrew Ivins has high praise for Davis, but similar to Jerrick Gibson, critiques his pass blocking, and says that is what he needs to work on to get consistent reps in college.

If Davis sticks with FSU, he’ll be a pain to deal with whenever the Gators and Noles match up. On the other side, if Napier and the Gators can flip Kameron, it would automatically give them one of the best RB classes in the country.

Davis and Chauncey Bowens are lethal enough, but if Florida could also add Jerrick Gibson?


Aside from just landing his elite talent, flipping Kameron also takes a great player, and FSU’s top commit, away from Tallahassee. Win-win.

A good impression is a must for Napier and the Gators this weekend as they pursue Davis.
