Senior cornerback Daniel Davie will be called on to be a leader for the Blackshirt defense during the 2015 season. Davie emerged in 2014 as a reliable starter at cornerback, and he and safety Nate Gerry are Nebraska’s most game-tested returning veterans in the secondary.

The 6-1, 190-pound Davie brings great length to the cornerback spot, allowing him to match up with tall opposing receivers. Davie missed more than half of spring ball with an ankle injury but will be at full strength for fall camp. Davie used a strong performance in preseason practice last fall to earn a starting job, and he helped Nebraska rank among the national leaders in opponent completion percentage, pass efficiency defense and third-down defense.

Davie was born and raised in Michigan, before moving to Beatrice, Neb., before his sophomore year of high school. A criminology and criminal justice major, Davie is on track to earn his degree in December.

2014 (Junior)
Davie started all 13 games and recorded 41 tackles, including 25 solo stops and six tackles for loss. He was second on the team with two interceptions and had five pass breakups. Davie had four games with five or more tackles, including a career-high eight against Purdue. His play helped Nebraska hold nine opponents to 50 percent or lower passing.

Davie made his first career start in the opener against FAU and made five solo stops. He had two tackles for loss against both Fresno State and Miami in non-league play.

Davie snared a pair of interceptions in the Big Ten opener against Illinois, the first a diving pick in the end zone to stop an Illini drive in the first quarter. Davie added two pass breakups to his career-high tackle total against Purdue. Davie had five tackles and a tackle for loss against both Iowa and USC to close out the season.

2013 (Sophomore)
Davie played in the first 10 games, seeing action as a reserve cornerback and several of the Huskers’ special teams units. Davie had an unassisted tackle at Purdue. He suffered a season-ending knee injury on kickoff coverage against Michigan State.

2012 (Redshirt Freshman)
Davie played in 13 games, primarily on special teams. He had seven tackles, including six on special teams. Davie had a season-high two tackles and a breakup against Idaho State.

Before Nebraska (Beatrice HS)
Davie played running back, defensive back and was a special teams standout for Beatrice High and Coach Bob Sexton. He rushed for 1,556 yards and 18 touchdowns while averaging 6.5 yards per attempt, and capped his senior season with a 265-yard performance against Holdrege in the state playoffs. Davie also had more than 200 receiving yards as a senior, while adding 35 tackles and an interception on defense. He also averaged nearly 30 yards per kickoff return.

Davie was selected to the offensive squad on the Lincoln Journal Star’s Super-State team (athlete) and the Omaha World-Herald’s All-Nebraska squad (back). He earned first-team Class B honors from both newspapers as a running back. Davie was regarded as one of the top three prospects in Nebraska by

Davie won the all-class gold in both the 100 and 200 meters at the 2010 Nebraska state track meet. Davie recorded a 10.73 time in the 100 and a 21.95 time in the 200. At the 2011 Shrine Bowl, Davie recorded a 28-yard touchdown reception. Davie committed to the Huskers in June of 2010. He received numerous offers, including Kansas and Ohio.

Davie has volunteered his time with Make-a-Wish, Uplifting Athletes, Mad Dads, the Husker Hotline and local team school and hospital visits.
