Report: Judah And J.D. Davis, Sons Of Former Tigers Legend Jeff Davis, Commit To Clemson

Two sons will follow in the footsteps of their father on the gridiron in two years.

Central-D.W. Daniel (SC) linebackers Judah and J.D. Davis both committed to Clemson Friday afternoon following the conclusion of the Dabo Swinney Football Camp, as first reported by TigerIllustrated.com:

The two brothers hail from a robust bloodline, as their father Jeff Davis — also a linebacker — was deemed Most Valuable Player of the Tigers’ National Championship-claiming victory over Nebraska in the 1981 Orange Bowl before being inducted into the Clemson Hall of Fame in 1989.

Following their upcoming senior years of high school, Judah and J.D. plan to spend one year at Tri-County Technical College prior to enrolling at Clemson in 2015 on scholarship. 

The Davis brothers are just the latest installments in a Clemson class already with 12 commits for the 2014 cycle. The two additions help the Tigers earn an early billing as the sixth-ranked recruiting class in the nation, according to Rivals.com.
