In Brian Bailey’s report for WNCT, he sites an inside source – a coach – as stating that Dominique Davis was the odds on favorite to win the ECU starting QB role. The source noted this was in large part due to his game experience.
I have personally spoken to DD and he is a sharp kid who is going to work very hard to make that a reality and I am hoping that this is the case given that he has played already in two huge championships (ACC and National JUCO).
The big if for Davis is accuracy. I spoke to several prominent JUCO football coaches and they gave him mixed reviews. His own coach at Fort Scott Community College has produced 13 Division I quarterbacks and calls DD the best of the bunch. He also noted that DD has focused and worked so hard on his accuracy that he is now virtually a marksman.
HOWEVER…in speaking to at least one other prominent JUCO coach, he said that DD was somewhat overrated.
Having spoken to DD…I think he has the goods and I expect him to come in and win the starting job. I am sure that Coach Ruff and his staff will have the best possible quarterback under center come September 5th.
My biggest reason for this is that he was a Steven Logan bred quarterback. And, love or hate Steve, he knows quarterbacks.
