COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said he expects running back Mike Davis to make himself eligible for the NFL draft after the Gamecocks face Miami in the Independence Bowl on Dec. 27.

Spurrier said after practice Wednesday that he and Davis have discussed the running back turning pro on several occasions.

Davis, a junior, has rushed for 927 yards and nine touchdowns this season. He’s 73 yards shy of becoming just the second-ever tailback with multiple 1,000-yard seasons at South Carolina (6-6). Heisman Trophy winner George Rogers had three, 1,000 yard seasons for the Gamecocks from 1978-1980.

Davis also had 30 catches for 349 yards and a touchdown receiving. He’s had three games this year with 100 yards or more, but none in South Carolina’s final five games.
