He was chosen for the Class 4A second-team all-state team by the Associated Press, and following his senior year, the District 8-4A Defensive MVP was chosen. Davis was a student at Texas Tech where he played collegiately.
Davis had 84 solo tackles and 101 total tackles as a senior in 2012, earning him a spot on the first team of the Capital One Academic All-Americans and a spot on the second team of the Big 12 for the second straight season.
His Texas Tech career came to an end with 49 starts, including 22 straight at safety. On March 23, 2020, Davis signed a contract with the New England Patriots. Due to rib damage, he was put on an injured reserve on October 5, 2020.
