Junior Andre Davis the number one target at wide receiver for USF.  After a promising 2012, the 2013 season could be a record breaking one for the Jefferson HS product.

2012: Davis became the primary target last season, catching 46 passes for 534 yards (11.6 per catch) and 6 touchdowns while making 8 starts.  He built it off of a strong freshman campaign where he caught 22 passe for 273 yards and 3 touchdowns.

2013 Bull Rush Projection: Davis burst onto the scene last season, catching everyone’s attention with the 191 yard performance against Nevada early in the year.  However, after that game, his production declined as teams became to double-team him and take him out of games (didn’t help that the entire offense sputtered out as well).  At times, Davis was nearly invisible on the field, not breaking open and being frustrated by defenses.

This season, Davis is back and the offense, with Montgomery and others, should be much more balanced, allowing Davis to see more passes (as long as the quarterback can get the ball to him).  With a more consistent offense in place, solid playmakers around him, Davis should see a lot of passes thrown his way and solid numbers to come.  USF has never had a receiver go over 1000 yards in a year, could this be the year we see it happen?
