Millikan junior cornerback Tacario Davis committed to Arizona on Monday, and the three-star cornerback is excited about his prospects in Tucson, despite the bizarre recruiting process that’s affected all athletes during the NCAA’s year-long recruiting dead period.
“We’re not allowed to get into the football facility but I went out there and looked at the campus, the classrooms and dorms, and I got a great vibe, I can see myself there for four to five years,” said Davis. “I like that it’s closer to home so my family could come out and watch me play.”
Davis is a lockdown corner with length and speed at 6-foot-2, and picked Arizona over Arizona State and Kansas, among other schools. Davis will be a DB in college but will play on both sides of the ball at Millikan, as a receiver and a DB.
“When it’s all said and done he’ll be a top three corner for his class in the state of California,” said Millikan coach Romeo Pellum. “His potential is through the roof, especially going to Arizona. D Walk (Wildcats DB coach DeWayne Walker) has coached some legends.”
Both Davis and Pellum are hoping that the case rate for COVID-19 continues to drop so that Davis and his teammates get a chance to shine on the field this year.
“I enjoyed playing club football but I’m hoping we get Millikan going, we’re going to be good this year,” said Davis.
