Ducks Add Texas Transfer
According to the web site, sportsnewsandscores.com, Davis was stopped around 6:45 a.m. because of driving on a flat tire. He was then arrested for driving while intoxicated and for possession of a controlled substance. The charges against Davis were later drastically reduced.
Brown suspended Davis immediately from the Longhorns final games of the season and the Rose Bowl game for the BCS Championship. On January 1, 2010, the blog site BurntOrangeNation.com posted a report indicating Davis was transferring and sources tell eDuck.com that soon afterward, Davis contacted Oregon's Chip Kelly about transferring to Eugene, ironically prior to a number of legal incidents involving Oregon players.
Davis appeared in four games for the Longhorns in 2009, recording four tackles, including two on special teams, one sack and one tackle for loss.
The Ducks are expected to release an official statement regarding Davis' enrollment later today.
