Andre Davis set program records and moved up the list in others last season. He was the best wide receiver during a rocky year and is back and for his final season, a season that could re-define the record books.

#7 Andre Davis – 6’1″ 207 lbs. – Wide receiver – Senior – Tampa, FL (Jefferson HS)

2013: Davis made 11 starts in 12 games, catching 49 receptions (4th best in a single season) for 735 yards (best season in program record) and 2 touchdowns. He has 10 touchdowns in his career (4th all time), 1542 career receiving yards (3rd all time) and 117 career receptions (3rd best all time). Davis also extended his streak (program record) to 30 straight games with at least one reception and notched 3 (back-to-back-to-back) 100-yard receiving performances in a row, a program first. Despite the struggles on offense, Davis had a monster season.

2014 Bull Rush Prediction: Davis set program records last season during a year that saw 3 different quarterbacks shuffling in and out, a bad offensive line that allowed constant pressure on the inexperienced quarterbacks, and a run game that failed to get going. Davis was doubled team a lot during the year, making life, yet he still put up the record setting numbers.

Now with more weapons around him, more experience on the offense, and a team ready to bounce back, the sky is the limit for Davis. I fully expect Davis to put up another huge season and possibly put his name on top of all the record books. The career mark for receiving yardage in a career sits at 1648 (Carlton Mitchell), so Davis is already set to take that record down. Could he have the elusive 1000 yard season? It is hard to say with the tight ends being favorite targets in this offense, but it can’t hurt to hope. Look for Davis to put up another strong season and possibly numbers that we haven’t seen before from a USF receiver.
