I’m not going to lie, I’m extremely excited about the potential of former four-star wide out Felton Davis III from Highland Springs, Virginia.

Far too often does Michigan State snag top wide out recruits and have them not pan out, but Davis III screams of a more reliable variety of incoming player.

On the previous slide, I had mentioned about how Macgarrett Kings Jr. and Mark Dantonio had both praised Davis III and Stewart as freshman wide outs, but just looking at the overall body of work, it’s clear that Felton has what it takes to compete in the Big Ten.

Although he is slightly-built, the freshman from Virginia has solid height, 6-foot-3, and decent speed to become a consistent threat in the passing game. With Connor Cook passing him the ball, that makes the young receiver’s job that much easier, knowing it will always be where it’s supposed to be and when it’s supposed to be there.

"“It’s a great opportunity to get some knowledge from each individual,” Davis said. “I can get four different aspects of the game from a certain position, especially having those good people in front of me.”"

Put some pounds on Davis and you might have the next Tony Lippett with more explosive ability.
