B-E's Davis happy to be back "home" playing for S.C. State

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- Former Bamberg-Ehrhardt defensive line standout LaSamuel Davis has been busy since high school. He just hasn't played a college football game yet.

But that should change this fall.

Two years ago, Davis went to prep school so he could qualify to play NCAA Division I football. Last year, he red-shirted at Clemson, working out and practicing with the team that won the national championship.

In April, the former dominant Red Raiders pass-rushing threat was a contributing member of the Tigers program who played in the Orange & White Spring Game.

Soon after, Davis decided he needed a third change of scenery in three years. Davis enrolled in summer school classes at South Carolina State and began working out with the Bulldogs team.

With Clemson in line to bring in three of the nation's top high school defensive ends in the next two seasons, that might have been a proactive move by Davis. The Tigers are now without three D-ends who were expected to play some in 2017. But, Davis had to do what he believed was best for him.
