LOGAN — The first of many newcomers to Utah State has made their way to the Cache Valley Media Group Top 25 Aggies of 2023. Micah Davis is transferring to USU after stints with both Air Force and Iowa Western Community College.
The junior wide receiver has seen limited but promising production at his previous stops. With Air Force, and its run-heavy offense, Davis caught 10 passes for 221 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Naturally, he also ran the ball for the Falcons, logging 47 carries for 360 yards and four TDs.
Davis’ best game with Air Force actually came against Utah State in 2021. He caught four passes for a career-best 110 yards and a touchdown. He also ran seven times for 32 yards and another score.
After two seasons at Air Force, Davis transferred to Iowa Western. He played the 2022 season with them, earning ICCAC All-Conference honors as a return specialist. He gained 326 yards on 29 punt returns (11.2 per return) and added 11 kickoff returns for 229 yards. Davis also caught 33 passes during the season for 289 yards and two touchdowns. He also added 117 rushing yards on 10 carries.
All of those stats make one thing clear: Davis is a very versatile player. He’s someone who can catch passes, run the ball and be an effective returner. He’s fairly likely to do all three at some point for the Aggies this season and it’ll make him one of the more valuable players on the team.
