Former Auburn/HBCU quarterback transferring to FBS school


Dematrius Davis, the former Auburn and Alabama State quarterback, has found a new home in the FBS.

Davis has committed to the University of Texas at San Antonio, according to his social media. 

Davis was a Texas High School legend at Galena Park North Shore High School. He compiled 13,583 total yards of offense — 10,536 through the air and 3,047 on the ground — and 171 touchdowns over a four-year run that saw North Shore capture state titles in 2018 and 2019 and Davis post a 51-3 record as a starting quarterback.

Davis was ranked as the 24th best quarterback in the 2021 class and the 35th best prospect in Texas. He had offers from Florida State, Boston College, Baylor, Arkansas, Arizona State, Virginia Tech, LSU, Miami, Nebraska and pretty much every other Power Five program. But he chose Auburn, enrolling in Jan. 2021.

After starting 54 games in high school, Dematrius Davis found himself in the unfamiliar position of riding the pine for Auburn in 2021. He was expected to challenge for the starting role this spring, but Auburn brought in two quarterbacks via the transfer portal and a new four-star. Davis, seeing the handwriting on the wall, decided it was time for a change.

He landed at Alabama State, where he spent the last two seasons. He played and started in nine games in their first year as a full-time starter after transferring from Auburn University. He was named the MVP of the MEAC-SWAC Challenge after completing 16 of 23 passes for 184 yards and one touchdown pass. 

Davis played in five games in 2023, completing 42 of 61 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns. But the season ended with Davis on the bench, and he hit the transfer portal after the season. 

“Thank you ASU, for allowing a kid from Houston, TX to have his first taste of college football, become a better man and more educated,” Davis said in his statement. “Thank you to Coach Eddie Robinson and Coach James Williams [for] believing in me from start to finish. Thank you to the trainers that helped me when bruised up. With two years of eligibility left, I have decided to enter my name into the transfer portal.”

Now he’ll be taking his talents to San Antonio.
