Dematrius Davis Jr. is listed as a 6’0” tall 190 pound dual threat quarterback from Houston, Texas. Now the Houston Astros might be stealing signs these days but there is no doubt, Davis Jr. is ready to steal the spot light.

Davis Jr. amassed 51 total touchdowns last year. (30 passing 21 rushing) Totaling 1171 yards rushing would be great stats for any high school running back but when you consider those are actual quarterback stats? Impressive.

Davis Jr. recently made headlines when he decommited from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. (That is Virginia Tech for us lay folk) Suitors like the Auburn Tigers are hot on this 2021 quarterback’s tail.

Immediately when I watched his highlight film I saw a prospect with a penchant for big plays. Davis Jr. is a rarefied running threat who is capable of a house call at a moment’s notice. 51 total touchdowns didn’t happen by accident.

The next thing that jumps out at you is his exquisite touch on deep balls. Having the routine ability to place the perfect passes, especially downfield, is so intangibly indefensible.

As the video came to an end and I saw Davis Jr. playing on the Houston Cougars home turf, I couldn’t help but make a certain comparison. He reminded me of a number four who also once played on that field and gave opposing AAC teams fits.

Both D’Eriq King and Davis Jr. have rented VIP rooms in their respective 50 plus touchdown clubs. Both quarterbacks can safely be defined as play-makers.

Cue the picture pages theme song. Actually it’s a song by a band Releese called “Clown.” (I wrote it) It is another Student of the Game that is tailor made for the The State of The U faithful. Popcorn ready? Let’s go.
