2. Tyler Davis, 4-star DT
Comparison: Albert Huggins
Huggins was 6-foot-3 and 289 pounds when he began his Clemson football career. He leaves weighing more than 315 pounds.
Tyler Davis comes into Clemson at 6-foot-1 and around 293 pounds. I’d expect him to leave Clemson around the same weight when it’s all said and done.
These two guys are comparable because they both projected as nose-tackle type players coming in, but they played athletically in high school. Huggins, as a matter of fact, lined up at defensive end a lot of the time during his high school career.
Davis has played the interior line, but he is able to use his underappreciated athleticism to beat blockers and stuff runners in the backfield. He’s also able to pursue scrambling quarterbacks.
I think he projects with a higher ceiling than Huggins, but it’s certainly a decent comparison.
