Torrey Davis quits football team

TAMPA -- Florida defensive tackle Torrey Davis recently quit the Florida football program, according to Florida sports information director Steve McClain.

McClain would not give a reason for Davis decision. When asked if Davis failed a drug test, which has been rumored, McClain said, "He left the team." McClain said that he did not know if Davis was still enrolled at Florida or if the former Gator has dropped out of school. "He left the team," McClain said.

A side note: I went by Torrey Davis' mother's house today while in Tampa covering the SEC basketball tournament but no one answered the door. (Two cars were outside and I heard people talking on the other side of the door.)

Davis was a five-star recruit from Seffner Armwood in 2007 but never turned into the force Florida coach Urban Meyer had hoped. Davis is one of two five-star defensive tackles from the 2007 class to recently quit the football team. Former Lakeland star John Brown is planning to transfer, according to Meyer.

Davis never reached his full potential while at UF, but say this for the guy: He certainly earned his scholarship. Davis made two goal-line tackles on third and fourth down during the fourth quarter of the national championship game. Those two tackles, along with safety Ahmad Black's fourth-quarter interception of OU quarterback Sam Bradford, were the defensive highlights of the game.

oh well...plenty more kids right behind him...they don't all work out...Go Gators

P.S. - basketball team is awful

Another five-star-can't-miss prospect bites the dust. Shocking.

With T. Davis, it's not over 'till it's over. He may have an opportunity to earn his way back onto the team.

Why are defensive linemen always the dummies?

Because they're dumb.
