The Path to Norman
Jaden Davis kept the South Florida pipeline alive in the 2019 class. A highly ranked corner, he was teammates at St. Thomas Aquinas with fellow Sooner Nik Bonitto. Despite offers from the likes of Clemson, Miami, and Texas, and several states of distance, Davis knew OU was the right choice from the first time he visited Norman and let it be known in the summer of 2018.
Career so Far
Davis had an impressive freshman season. Preseason, Tre Norwood and Tre Brown were expected to be the starters at corner. However, an injury to Norwood left one spot open. Parnell Motley stepped up and started in almost every game. However, Jaden was a big contributor at corner; he played in every game and even started against West Virginia. He was a hunter on defense and really earned his minutes.

After a big freshman season, Davis will attempt to translate that to his sophomore year. Tre Norwood will be back this season, and the offseason battle for corner has been one of the tougher position battles. Young guys like Kendall Dennis, D.J. Graham, and Joshua Eaton have received nothing but high talk, and they will certainly get a look on the field. However, Davis had too impressive a freshman season to stop now. Look for Jaden Davis to be a starter at corner this year for OU.
