Virginia Tech rising senior wide receiver Marcus Davis has been named to the Biletnikoff Award Watch List. As a junior, Davis had 30 receptions for 510 yards and 5 TD's. Davis broke onto the scene in the 2010 game at North Carolina with 4 catches for 81 yards and 2 TD's while filling in for an injured Dyrell Roberts. His career totals are 54 receptions for 874 yards and 8 TD's. He also has 4 carries for 14 yards.
Davis was behind the career No. 1 and 2 wide receivers in Virginia Tech history, as well as Roberts until his injury woes in successive seasons. He will most likely be the Hokies top receiver and is a candidate for a breakout season. He has size, speed and athleticism that neither Coale nor Boykin possessed, but he has often been accused of dogging it and taking plays off. If he plays up to his potential on a consistent basis, there is no telling how good of a season Davis can put together. His ability to get open and stretch the field will be important in lessening the burden Logan Thomas has to assume on offense.
