03/28/2013 - 2013 Virginia Tech Pro Day: Representatives from 26 NFL teams gathered at Virginia Tech's pro day on March 20, where 13 Hokies players went through a workout indoors on AstroTurf. AstroTurf, it should be noted, is a faster surface than natural grass or even FieldTurf. Marcus Davis, WR (6-3 1/2, 226) - Davis ran the 40-yard dash in 4.50 and 4.48 seconds. He had a 39-inch vertical jump and did the short shuttle in 4.20 seconds. Davis really worked out well. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

02/20/2013 - 2013 NFL Combine, Workout warriors: A talented, but frustrating prospect on tape is Virginia Tech's Marcus Davis, who is expected to test very well in Indianapolis. Effort and consistency are large issues that will be tough to overlook, but with impressive numbers in the 40-yard dash and vertical jump, Davis could prove to be worth the risk based on his athletic potential. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/28/2012 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: WR Marcus Davis is the Hokies' most dangerous offensive weapon, but his inconsistency has hurt the team this season. Davis can stretch a field with his speed and athleticism, but his blocking has been spotty, which is why he has not started the last two games. Virginia Tech needs him at his best against the Scarlet Knights to ensure every element of its offense is clicking. If Davis isn't involved early and often, it could be a long day for the Hokies. - The Sports Xchange

12/12/2012 - 2012 COACHES ALL-ACC FOOTBALL HONORABLE MENTION: WR-Marcus Davis, Sr.-R, Virginia Tech (2), has been selected Honorable Mention All-Atlantic Coast Conference (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season. This year, for the first time under the auspices of the ACC, the league's 12 head football coaches voted for an All-ACC football team. - Virginia Tech football

11/17/2012 - Virginia Tech kept its bowl hopes alive with a 30-23 overtime win over host Boston College on Saturday at Alumni Stadium. Hokies quarterback Logan Thomas threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to tight end Randall Dunn in the back of the end zone in overtime, and Virginia Tech's defense held Boston College scoreless in a dominating final series.

Thomas passed for 247 yards and scored three touchdowns, one rushing, in the comeback victory. Wide receiver Marcus Davis came off the bench in the second half to catch five passes for 104 yards and a 28-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. Virginia Tech's defense held BC to 298 yards and sacked Eagles quarterback Chase Rettig six times. Outside linebacker Alonzo Tweedy, making his first start of the season, had two sacks, both in the first quarter. - The Sports Xchange

11/13/2012 - 11/12/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT FALLER: WR MARCUS DAVIS, VIRGINIA TECH...His hand/eye coordination has been a question mark this season and in this game after several throws went off his hands, struggling on throws away from his body. Davis also made too many mental mistakes in other areas against Florida State, including a lost fumble, holding the ball too loose from his body, and inconsistent blocking effort on several plays. It's easy to like Davis as a prospect, especially because he will likely blow up the combine with his athletic skill-set, but until he improves his on-field focus and consistency, it's tough to trust him. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

11/13/2012 - 11/12/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT FALLER: WR MARCUS DAVIS, VIRGINIA TECH...With Danny Coale and Jarrett Boykin moving on to the NFL, senior wideout Marcus Davis was expected to take a big step in 2012 to help QB Logan Thomas and the Hokies' offense. And while he has set new career-bests and leads the team in receiving (38 catches for 754 yards and four scores), Davis has left too much production on the field this season. Against Florida State last Thursday, he averaged 34.0 yards per catch (two catches for 68 yards), but it wasn't a memorable performance. Davis has the speed to burst past defensive backs on vertical routes, something he did a few times against the Seminoles. But with his size (6-4, 232) and leaping ability, Davis needs to do a better job gaining position downfield and timing his jump to highpoint and come down with contested throws. He used his speed and tacking ability to come down with a 50+ yard pass in the first quarter, but his focus was very inconsistent all night. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

10/15/2012 - WEEK 7 ACC RECEIVER OF THE WEEK: Marcus Davis, Virginia Tech, R-Senior, WR, 6-4, 232, Virginia Beach, Va.,...Davis had a big game as the Hokies rallied to beat Duke, 41-20. The senior hauled in five passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns to spark the comeback, scoring on passes of 42 yards and 47 yards. - ACC football

09/10/2012 - WR Marcus Davis led the Hokies with 48 rushing yards on two carries Saturday against the Governors. It marks the first time a receiver has led Tech in rushing in Frank Beamer's 26 seasons as coach. Davis's yardage total was the most for a Tech receiver since Eddie Royal had 60 on two carries against North Carolina in 2007. Davis and redshirt freshman Demitri Knowles combined to rush for 69 yards against Austin Peay, more than Hokies receivers had in the previous 29 games combined. - The Sports Xchange

09/03/2012 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Virginia Tech is replacing wide receivers Jarrett Boykin and Danny Coale, the most productive duo in terms of receptions in ACC history. Boykin left Tech with a school-record 184 catches for a record 2,844 yards, while Coale was second in both categories with 165 catches for 2,658 yards. Together, they caught 349 passes for 5,502 yards and 26 touchdowns. Replacing them will be a quintet of seniors in Dyrell Roberts, D.J. Coles, Marcus Davis and Corey Fuller, along with a gaggle of freshmen and sophomores. Roberts has had two season-ending injuries the past two seasons, both coming on kickoff returns, but is best remembered for his sliding, 11-yard touchdown catch in the back of the end zone with 21 seconds left to help Tech rally and beat Nebraska 16-15 in 2009. Coles had a personal-best 36 catches for 480 yards and three touchdowns in 2011, while Davis, who came to Tech as a quarterback, averaged a team-best 17 yards per catch last year. Fuller ran track at the University of Kansas, competing in the triple jump, before transfering to Tech to play football. - Virginia Tech football

07/18/2012 - 2012 BILETNIKOFF AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST: Marcus Davis, Virgina Tech, has been selected to the Preseason Biletnikoff Award Watch List for the 2012 college football season, presented to America's top college football wide receiver by The Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc. - The Tallahassee Quarterback Club

05/09/2012 - Ocean Lakes coach Chris Scott on Virginia Tech wide receiver Marcus Davis: "He was very explosive. He was one of the fastest guys in terms of going short range. He gets up to speed very fast. He consistently had the fastest time in short distances.' "I also remember him doing a 360 dunk after taking off outside the block. To see 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds almost tear down the rim was amazing." "I remember taking him to a passing league event and he made an incredible one-hand catch. It was one of those ESPN-type catches where he doesn't even have a chance to pull the ball to his body. Being able to make the adjustment on the ball and the height he got up was incredible." - Larry Rubama, The Virginian-Pilot

05/08/2012 - 2012 College Football Freaks List: 7. Marcus Davis, Va. Tech, WR: The Hokies have produced more than their share of jaw-dropping 40 times in recent years, and they've done so again. Still, even the most skeptical would come away impressed with Davis, a 6-4, 228-pound former QB-turned-wideout, who set a VT record with a 44-inch vertical to go along with a 4.37 40, which for our purposes trumps (barely) the case of 260-pound DE James Gayle, who posted a position-record 39.5-inch vertical and a 4.44 40-time. - Bruce Feldman, CBS Sports
