Introducing Riverdale's Adam Davenport

InsideTennessee.com staff has already been on the road this winter evaluating and watching some of the top juniors in the state of Tennessee. We will begin introducing you to some of the state's top athletes over the next few weeks. It appears that the future is bright for in state talent this upcoming fall.

The talent level at the high school level in the state of Tennessee appears to be at a high level for the Class of 2012.

This class also appears to have a lot of speed.

One prospect that showed his speed recently at the Devinner Foundation Junior Combine in Nashville last month was Riverdale's Adam Davenport.

Davenport, a 6-foot-0, 192-pound athlete, ran a 4.41 forty at the combine, he also rushed over 1,611 yards and scored 26 touchdowns as a junior.

For his efforts Davenport was recently named First Team All-District, All Mid-State and All State in Class 6A.

InsideTennessee.com recently caught up with Davenport to get a little more insight on the talented in state athlete. Davenport when asked about his talents, gave credit to others before taking any himself.

"I have been blessed with a great offensive line," Davenport said. "We have great coaches at Riverdale, that helps out a lot. I would say my speed and size has helped me a lot and I have great vision, I see the holes very well."

Davenport currently has no offers, but hopes that changes in the future.

"I like Notre Dame, Tennessee, South Carolina a lot," Davenport said. "My parents haven't followed college football much, but that will change."

Davenport would like to find a school that is close enough to home that his parents can see him play.

"I would love to find a school that I could play that is close to my family and friends," Davenport said. "I would also like to go to a winning program and a place where I would get a great education."

Davenport was able to take in a couple of games this past season. He attended the Vandy vs. South Carolina game and the Georgia Tech game at Middle Tennessee State.

Davenport hasn't had the chance to visit the University of Tennessee campus and plans on changing that in the near future.

"I definitely plan on going up there in the next few months," Davenport said. "I'm looking forward to getting to know that program a lot better."
