Razorbacks RB Knile Davis Ready for 2012 Heisman Campaign
It was a depressing season for Arkansas RB Knile Davis who watched the Hogs dominate all season long from the sidelines. Due to a devastating ankle injury preseason, he didn’t see any action in 2011, but he’s ready to go in 2012. He may be the lone college football player looking forward to summer camp.
Davis on the upcoming season:
“I’m not an off season person. I’m ready for the season to come on. Last time I played was Ohio State (in the January 2011 Sugar Bowl). It’s been awhile – as you all know. I’m just ready man. I’m excited. I’m excited with the guys I’m playing with. The team I’m playing with…
Once you’ve reached a certain level and you get chopped off by injuries or something, you just miss being able to cut and miss being able to run. So every day that you can’t do it makes you work harder and try to get back to it. So every day I came in I was just trying to get my speed back and my cuts back as much as I could and it came.”

It sounds like the junior Heisman candidate is ready to go for 2012 and that’s great news for Hogs fans who are already feeling uneasy about going into the year with a new coach in John L. Smith. There’s no question the Hogs will need a lot of production from the 1-2 punch of QB Tyler Wilson and Davis to repeat the success of last season. For those who have forgotten Davis because of his injury, he lead the SEC in yards per carry in 2010 at 6.5 in addition to finding the end zone 13 times and rushing for 1,322 yards. He’ll be looking to prove spectators wrong all year as he campaigns for that Heisman trophy.
