PISCATAWAY, N.J. – Rutgers true freshman offensive guard Anthony Davis (Piscataway, N.J.) was named a First Team Freshman All-America by Rivals.com and a Second Team Freshman All-America selection by Scout.com. Davis has played in all 11 games for the Scarlet Knights in 2007, including six straight starts at right guard.
In his six games starting at right guard, Rutgers has averaged 210.7 rushing yards per game. RU averaged 173 rushing yards per game without Davis as a starter. The team has averaged 404.7 yards of total offense per game since Davis was inserted in the starting lineup.
Davis has yet to allow a sack this season for the Scarlet Knights. He is the first Freshman All-America selection for the Scarlet Knights since Ray Rice (New Rochelle, N.Y.) and Courtney Greene (New Rochelle, N.Y.) in 2005.
Davis and his teammates return to action Thursday, November 29 at Louisville. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. on ESPN.
