Davis is a California native. He attends Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California. He’s listed at 6-foot-1, 190 pounds.
He’s a major pickup for the Utes in the class of 2024. Davis currently ranks as the No. 636 overall player and the No. 61 safety in the country, per 247Sports Composite rankings.
Davis didn’t hold an offer from Utah until earlier this month. Once that offer came, things moved quickly in his recruitment.
Davis is Utah’s 3rd commitment so far in the class of 2024. The Utes are expected to continue adding to their ’24 recruiting class in the coming weeks.
