Michigan football: Jadyn Davis is playing like a 5-star quarterback

Michigan football’s future starting quarterback, Jadyn Davis, has been spectacular so far during his senior season. 

The quarterback position for Michigan football is in good hands. J.J. McCarthy has been spectacular this season, leading the FBS in completion percentage. He also has five touchdown passes compared to zero interceptions.

McCarthy is working his way into the Heisman Trophy mix. He’s also getting talked about as a first-round pick, which would mean that J.J. doesn’t return to the Wolverines in 2024.

I have no idea if he will or not. It would be hard to blame McCarthy if he left for the NFL draft after this season, but he has always said he wanted to stay four years, so we’ll see.

But even if Michigan football needs a new starting quarterback next season, it looks like the future is bright with Jadyn Davis set to take over at some point.

Jadyn Davis is looking like a five-star

When Davis committed to Michigan football, he was ranked as a five-star recruit. His ranking dropped a little bit and he’s ranked 66th overall according to the 247 Sports composite rankings.

However, after seeing the kinds of numbers Davis is putting up this fall for Providence Day in Charlotte, it’s a wonder why he’s not a five-star quarterback.

Last week, Davis continued his impressive senior season, completing 11-of-13 passes for 200 yards and three touchdown passes. On the season, Davis is mirroring McCarthy and has been incredibly accurate, completing 70-of-93 passes. That’s 75 percent.

Davis is averaging 303 yards per game, in addition to 14 touchdowns. Some recruiting scouts have questioned his arm strength and playmaking ability.

But he looks quite ready to take over a college football offense. I’m not worried about his arm. Maybe he doesn’t have the athleticism of J.J. McCarthy, but Davis has to be among the most college football-ready quarterbacks in 2024.
