Stephen Davis Jr. Set To Enroll At South Carolina After Transferring From Auburn

Stephen Davis Jr., son of former All-Pro running back Stephen Davis, is transferring from his father's alma mater Auburn to South Carolina.

Davis was one of 11 departures that Gus Malzahn announced at the beginning of spring football. The school blocked him from transferring within the SEC or to Clemson, which the Tigers play in Week 1. Davis is able to head to South Carolina, however, by enrolling as a walk-on this year.

From The State:

The former Dutch Fork standout will enroll at USC for its second summer session June 26 and intends to play for the football team, his father Stephen Davis Sr. told The State. He will have sit out next year because of NCAA rules after transferring from Auburn.


Current USC head coach Will Muschamp and assistant Tavaris Robinson recruited Davis when they were at Auburn. Davis visited USC in high school and expressed interest to be a Gamecock before he chose Auburn.

As a member of the 2016 recruiting class, Davis was a three-star recruit and the No. 7 player in South Carolina. He was listed at running back for the Tigers last season, though he played on both sides of the ball in high school. He sat out last season recovering from a torn ACL.
