Scouting Report: (6/22/2019) Torrance Davis is an immensely talented running back and right now the most underrated player at his position. He has an elite blend of size, power, quickness and graceful elusiveness. Torrance is a strong, sturdy, well-built runner with a lower center of gravity and has excellent overall athleticism and versatility.
I don’t like comparing recruits to elite NFL players, but you can’t help be reminded of Todd Gurley when he was at Tarboro High School when you watch his film.
Torrance shows impressive initial burst and explodes through the line of scrimmage when he finds the right crease and shows the ability to avoid penetration in the backfield. He can bounce the run outside on the second level and he will run away from defenders in daylight. He doesn’t just run hard but runs with elite power. Torrance shows good patience and reads blocks well and consistently breaks arm tackles and bounces off contact when he gains momentum.
Torrance is not only a gifted runner but equally dangerous in the passing game. He is a mismatch one-on-one due to size/speed, range, and ball skills and can win one-on-one against linebackers on speed alone if needed. Considering his measurables, there are few if any running backs in this class who can move as he can with body control and coordination.
He is a great overall athlete and could play several different positions at the power 5 level. However, players with his size and skillset are difficult to find and he has the potential to become an All-Conference or better at the running back position.
