Auburn landed one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2021 class as Dematrius Davis announced his commitment to the school Sunday:
The 4-star recruit is considered the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback in the country and No. 130 player overall by 247Sports' composite rankings.
He accounted for more than 4,000 yards through the air and on the ground with 54 total touchdowns as a junior in 2019, per Sam Khan Jr. of ESPN.
Davis had previously committed to Virginia Tech but reopened his recruitment earlier this month.

Adding his resume to his skill set, he was a highly sought-after recruit nationwide.
Davis had more than two dozen offers around the country, listing LSU, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech among his finalist before settling on Auburn.

Though Auburn is happy with what Bo Nix provided as a freshman, Davis could be next in line to give the SEC squad another versatile weapon at quarterback.
