After committing to Clemson last fall and committing Florida State in the spring, Cortez Davis is back with the Tigers.

The four-star defensive back from Daytona Beach, Fla. adds to an already stellar 2011 Clemson recruiting class, which includes his high school teammate Marlin Lane, a four-star running back.

This signing helps ease the sting of losing defensive back Geraldo Orta, who decommitted from Clemson a couple weeks ago. Orta, however, is still a soft verbal commit to the Tigers.

Davis spurned the likes of USC, Alabama, and Florida in signing with Clemson.

He is rated as the No. 13 safety nationally in the class of 2011.
