The North Carolina-native signed with the Bulldogs as a three-star recruit and is now being projected to be drafted as high as the first round. Throughout his four-year career, Davis has recorded 82 total tackles and seven sacks. While his numbers are one thing, No. 99’s behemoth presence in the middle creates chaos for opposing offenses, particularly in the run game.
However, on Saturday, Davis was on the other side of the run game.
Undefeated Georgia hosted Charleston Southern for the program’s senior night and entered the game favored by 52.5.
It was going to be a boat race in front of a home crowd, which is the perfect way to honor the players leaving the team after this year. Jordan was among them and received a massive ovation when he was introduced.

Later in the first quarter, head coach Kirby Smart decided to give him a curtain call— on offense. With the ball stacked up against the goal line on 2nd-and-goal, Davis lined up at running back.
He took the handoff and was stopped at the line of scrimmage.

On the very next play, Davis was still in the game. After lining up on the left side of the line and motioning into the backfield, Davis again took the handoff and went right up the middle.
Leaving his feet and diving across the line, Davis scored the first touchdown of his career.

To be a defender trying to get in his path and stop the effort looks absolutely terrifying.

Everybody loves a big man touchdown and Davis’ score might be amongst the biggest big man touchdowns in history. After the game, he got to direct the band.
