Quaydarius Davis, a Top247 receiver in the 2021 class who signed with Kansas, is heading to Jackson State to play for coach Deion Sanders.

Davis, who prepped at Dallas Skyline and signed with Kansas in February, was released from his letter of intent with the Jayhawks in the spring.

“The coaching staff, all the people around it, there is a lot to it that makes we want to (go to Jackson State),” Davis said. “There is a lot to it.”

The 6-foot, 193-pound Davis is the No. 23 receiver in the class of 2021 industry-generated 247Sports Composite.

The chance to play for Sanders’ program was appealing to Davis.

“It’s going to be a great experience,” Davis said. “He’s a Hall of Famer. Not too many people get chance like that. He going to teach me a lot. I have to learn a lot. There is going to be a lot to it.”

Although Davis heads to Jackson State as a receiver and Sanders was an all-time great on defense, Davis figures he can pick up a ton of tips.

“I can learn a lot from him,” Davis said. “There are levels to the game. It’s like I am starting all over again, something new from high school.”

Sanders has compiled a lot of talent since arriving at Jackson State, and that appealed to Davis as well.

“They are trying to build something very big,” he said. “They are trying to do something nobody has every done. That is why Deion Sanders is the man. Prime Time. I respect him a lot. He is teaching us how to be young men and change yourself.”

Davis will be eligible for the fall. He had not visited Jackson State prior to arriving for the start of summer classes.9COMMENTS

“It is very exciting to me,” he said. “You get another opportunity and a chance to show what you got. I am very excited.”
