John Davis DB outlook

North Texas cornerback John Davis Jr. (8) breaks up a pass intended for Northwestern State wide receiver Jay Griffin IV last season. Davis will return this fall and is expected to be a key player in UNT’s secondary.

North Texas showed signs of improvement across the board in 2021 defensively behind a host of talented players in its front seven.

Linebacker KD Davis was a first-team All-Conference USA selection, while defensive tackle Dion Novil was a second team pick. Defensive ends Gabriel Murphy and Grayson Murphy were among UNT’s best playmakers.
