I watched Jackson High School’s Treylan Davis scrimmage against Ironton HS in August. Actually focused on him as an OLB. After watching first game video, he may be a better TE prospect. Either way, Treylan is D1 college prospect.
First saw him his 9th grade year. Watched him at a college camp this past summer and really liked his athleticism and agility for a 6’5-215 pound about to be junior. As a 2021 prospect, his talent gets better and better.
Different than most tight end prospects in today’s game is that he loves to block. Good quickness off the LOS. Good bender and blocks pad under pad. Finishes blocks. All the time being aggressive. Blocking may be his strength and he thinks so, as well.
He is not targeted that often, but he caught the ball well in pregame. Soft hands. He adjusts to the ball. Good balance. Does need to run better after the catch. This will get better as he gets stronger.
Listed at 6’5-215 and no bigger than this. But he is getting bigger and stronger and this winter wants to really focus on getting stronger. As he grows, he will become more and more a high level recruit. Remember – he loves contact and blocking.
Carries a 3.9 GPA and loves his English classes. Eventually wants to study radiology.
The best thing about football for Treylan is the brotherhood that binds teammates together. Players learn to get along and work together. They help each other. He likes the closeness. For him, there is no worse thing about football. Does worry that rules are taking away some of the physicality of the game.
Advice to freshmen – “Do not take anything for granted. No days off. Listen to your coaches. Give 100% all day every day.”
Football recruiting – He is excited to see where it goes and where it ends up. Liked his camps. Worries that sometimes the college coaches are too nice, but he gets it.
I have not mentioned too much about his playing OLB. Really good tackler. Physical. Plays under control. Needs to improve re-direct. Enough said. He will get recruited at both positions – TE and OLB
Adding good weight/strength to his 6’5-215 frame will be huge. Athletic and physical. Looking forward to watching Treylan Davis get better and better. One of the top MSR tight ends in the Ohio 2021 Class.
