One player you haven’t heard much about this season is linebacker Raesjon Davis.
But Lincoln Riley was asked about him Tuesday.
“We’re really pleased,” Riley said. “He’s been a special teams impact player for a couple of weeks now.
“He’s really progressing defensively. He’s one of those guys who is right on the cusp of playing significant reps and earning time. He’s worked hard. He’s really changed his body, which was a big challenge for us after spring. I think he’s on a very upward trajectory.”
Donte Williams burned Davis’ freshman season by playing him on special teams in every game. That was coaching malpractice. Now his second season is also apparently dedicated to special teams.
One footnote: The participation chart for the Utah game does not list Davis as playing. They have been wrong before. But Riley seems to think he played so maybe he did.
