Five-star running back, Kameron Davis, is not only a future division one football player, but he’s also a baseball commit for the Florida State Seminoles.

Davis is a 5-foot-10, 200-pound running back from Dougherty High School in Albany, Georgia. According to 247sports, he is ranked as the No. 2 running back, the No. 6 recruit in Georgia and the No. 26 overall recruit in the country.

The five-star running back was the Seminoles’ first recruit for their class of 2024; he’s been committed to Florida State since February 2021. He was sold early on from the city of Tallahassee and the people at Florida State.

“Even when the team was losing, and the coaches wasn’t the best, it was always something they talked positive about,” Davis said. “Not only that, but the team itself. They showed a lot going through adversity, and they did a lot on the field this year. So getting to know them and know that they give it they’re all I would love to be a part of that.”

Since Davis’ commitment, the Seminoles have added seven commitments, and are ranked No. 4 in 247sports’ Class of 2024 recruiting class rankings. Their newest commitment is kicker, Jake Weinberg, from Delray Beach American Heritage. Davis has talked to him and gotten to know him, especially since his commitment.

“It’s amazing. All of our recruits we have a group chat and stuff, we talk a little bit," Davis said. "We just got the kicker, he’s a great kid. We talk a little bit more than the rest of the recruits and commits, but he’s a great guy.”

Just as his fellow commits have been great to him, the coaching staff have also impressed him. Since he’s been committed for just about two years, the coaching staff has seen him grow, and he’s also seen the ups and downs they’ve gone through as a program.

“With the coaches, it’s every day almost," Davis said. "I love talking to them, and they’re very inspirational.”

They’ve also stood out to Davis in that they’re open to him playing both football and baseball at the school, which some schools weren’t open to letting him take on.

“It feels great. With Florida State, they opened their arms to letting me play both, something that a lot of schools aren’t supportable of," Davis said. "And I think Florida State does a good job with handling those two-sport athletes. They don’t really bump heads between the programs, and they support it.”

As Davis heads into his junior baseball season, he’s also the top-ranked recruit in Florida State’s class headed into the spring. But managing multiple things isn’t new to him, and he will continue to advocate for the Seminoles to try and bring the best talent to Tallahassee.
