Nebraska football hosted 2021 quarterback Demartrius Davis Monday and the dual-threat prospect was impressed with the Huskers offense.
The Nebraska football team was back on the practice field Monday for spring practice and in addition to the media, the Huskers also had a quarterback recruit in for a visit in dual-threat signal caller Demartrius Davis.
Davis is unranked right now because he is part of the 2021 class, however, the 5-foot-11 quarterback from the state of Texas has already attracted plenty of offers as the Huskers are one of 19 teams that have offered him a scholarship.
Nebraska has offered a number of quarterback prospects from the 2021 class but Davis is the first to visit and after watching the Huskers practice Monday, the young quarterback said he liked what he saw from Scott Frost‘s offense.
Here is what Davis said to the Nebraska reporter for Rivals Nate Clouse: “I liked the plays that they were running with their offense. I really think they would be a good fit for me.”
Obviously, there is more to choosing a school than having an affinity for the offense being run, but at the same time, it certainly doesn’t hurt that Davis could see himself running the offense.
With his size and athletic ability, he certainly doesn’t strike you as a pro-style quarterback and that’s why he would be an ideal fit for what Nebraska football wants to do under Frost. The Huskers want a quarterback that can throw and run and Davis fits the bill.
Adding Davis would also add even more depth to the future of the quarterback position. Obviously, Adrian Martinez is the star right now and Luke McCaffrey is the man waiting in the wings. McCaffrey is taking his first snaps this week as part of spring practice but on top of that, Nebraska also has Logan Smothers committed for 2020.
Smothers is a three-star dual-threat quarterback from 2020. He will add another dynamic athlete to the quarterback room and if the Huskers could secure a pledge from Davis, they’d be even better off.
At least for now, it seems dual-threat quarterbacks like what they see from Frost and that’s a good thing.
