His big brother left home in 2005, heading up the road to play running back at Clemson. But back in Georgia, Mike Davis kept watching James. And with every spectacular run James made, Mike started hoping, as little brothers do, that he could one day mimic him. James was an instant star for the Tigers, making good on his ranking as the nation’s sixth-best running back recruit in his class, according to Rivals.com.
