Class of 2016 four-star safety Stephen Davis Jr., out of South Carolina’s Dutch Fork High School, near Columbia, has de-commited from the Auburn Tigers despite being a legacy. Drew Champlin of AL.com reported Davis’ decision, which was announced by him on Twitter.
After thinking a lot I have just decided to open my recruitment back up and de-commit from Auburn.

Davis’ father, Stephen Sr., was a fourth-round pick out of Auburn in the 1996 draft and played for the Washington Redskins, Carolina Panthers and St. Louis Rams from 1996-2002. He made three Pro Bowls and helped lead Carolina to the Super Bowl in 2003. In 1999, he led the NFL with 17 rushing touchdowns.
The young running back will certainly have his pick of the litter when it comes to his future, as he already has offers from South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, Clemson and Florida.
Davis has not given any indication as to whether or not he is leaning toward a particular program, but Campus Sports will update his decision process as new information becomes available.
