Cedar Hill (Texas) High quarterback Avery Davis submitted his National Letter of Intent to Notre Dame on Wednesday.

Rivals rates the 5-11, 188-pounder as a three-star prospect, the No. 80 player in Texas and the No. 19 dual-threat quarterback in the country.


• Recorded a time of 4.25 seconds in the shuttle drill, ran a 4.63 40-yard dash and posted a 32.7-inch vertical jump at the Nike Football The Opening Regional in Dallas on March 13, 2016.

• Completed 189 of 272 passes for 2,876 yards with 37 touchdowns and five interceptions as a senior. Also rushed 84 times for 369 yards and six scores.
• As a junior, connected on 138 of 211 passes for 2,138 yards with 25 touchdowns and four interceptions. Added 1,007 yards and 14 scores on the ground.
• As a starter at Cedar Hill, completed 327 of 483 pass attempts for 5,014 yards and accounted for 82 total touchdowns.

• Named the Texas District 7-6A Offensive Player of the Year.
• Selected to The Dallas Morning News All-Area second team.

All-Star Games And Camps
• Participated in the Under Armour All-America Game. Completed 3 of 12 passes for 94 yards, including a 79-yard a touchdown, and rushed four times for 16 yards.
• Played for the U.S. Under-19 National Team against Canada at the North American Championship Jan. 28 in Orlando, Fla.
• Participated in the Nike Football The Opening Regional in Dallas on March 13, 2016.

• Committed to Notre Dame on May 19, 2016, over 17 other offers, including Baylor, Colorado, Houston, Texas Tech and Utah.
• Primarily recruited by former offensive coordinator Mike Sanford.
• Visited Notre Dame four times and took his official visit on Dec. 9-11 for the Echoes Awards banquet.

• Born Aug. 26, 1998.
• First quarterback from Texas to sign with Notre Dame since Carlyle Holiday in 2000.

2017 Projection
• With Brandon Wimbush entrenched as the starter, and the return of senior Montgomery VanGorder and sophomore Ian Book, it is expected that Davis will preserve a season of eligibility.

BGI football analyst Bryan Driskell: “It isn’t always pretty, but Avery Davis has proven to be a highly productive football player during his two-year stint as the starter at Cedar Hill. He racked up 5,014 passing yards, 1,376 rushing yards and 82 touchdowns over the last two seasons while throwing just nine interceptions.

“He has a lightning quick release, and when he steps into throws, the ball jumps out of his hand, giving him the ability to make any throw on the field. He is a dynamic runner, but his passing mechanics are a bit erratic.”
