Davis to APSU, Dubay to UTM
Lebanon High senior tailback Taye Davis has verbally committed to continue his football career and education at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville.
He is expected to ink his National Letter of Intent during ceremonies planned Wednesday, Feb. 4 -- National Signing Day. A three-year starter for the Blue Devils, Davis (6-3, 250) committed to the Governors during an official visit Saturday.
"Taye has the tools to be a very good college football player," said LHS head coach Sam Harp. "It's entirely up to him. If he takes advantage of the opportunity before him, he can be a difference maker at that level. With hard work, Taye's best football will be in front of him."
Davis ran for 762 yards on 127 carries for Lebanon in 2014, averaging an even six yards per carry with five touchdowns. He also caught 24 passes for 370 yards (15.4 per reception) for three more scores.
He rushed for 2,432 yards during his varsity career.
Austin Peay, a longtime member of the Ohio Valley Conference, has gone 0-12 in each of the first two seasons under the direction of head coach Kirby Cannon.
