The haul out of the Sunshine State just keeps getting bigger.

5'9.5", 173 lbs Javarius Davis is an interesting prospect for Auburn. He is yet another Florida prospect that the Tigers plucked from the Sunshine State in this cycle, and another one that was a big Florida lean in the 247Sports Crystal Ball.

Davis was offered by a number of other schools, including Oregon, Louisville, Miami, and others. He visited Miami back in December, Auburn on Mega Recruiting Weekend, and then Louisville on the 24th of January. He was always on Auburn's board as target, even though he is projected at cornerback, where Auburn has already signed two at that position today in Jeremiah Dinson and Carlton Davis.

There was rumor Auburn would take three cornerbacks in this class if those were Dinson, Carlton Davis, and Javarius Davis. That rumor came to fruition this afternoon when the Tigers picked up Javarius. He is listed in the 247Sports database as an athlete, and could also get a look on the offensive side of the ball.

This also makes the third "Davis" Auburn has signed today, and the third with a first name ending in "vius" or "vious." That goes along with Montravius Adams and Dontavius Russell already on the roster to mean Auburn is REALLY racking up on themes with names on the team. Whether it's royalty, Davis', or last name pronounced "avious."

Welcome home, Javarius. We look forward to seeing what you can do for the Tigers. War Eagle.
