Ducks Attack has just learned that 6’1″ 185lb DB Marcus Davis, a former Texas Longhorns player, is in town and will be a duck. Marcus Davis was a 2008 recruit, rated as a four star by both scout and rivals. Coming out of high school, Davis accepted an offer from Texas over offers from Florida, Florida State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and UCLA.

Davis ran into trouble his freshman season at Texas and was caught driving while intoxicated. He was suspended indefinitely, and just a few months later he decided to transfer from Texas.

Oregon head coach Chip Kelly has dealt with troubled players before, and has been know to give players a chance at redemption.  For Davis, this opens up a great opportunity for him to get back on track. The Oregon coaches love the talent he brings to the table, and even compare him to former Oregon safety Patrick Chung. Davis will play safety, and can play corner back as well.
