A 6-foot-1, 205-pound catcher out of New York, Davis has one of the strongest arms in the entire 2018 draft class, with some scouts going as far as saying it currently stacks up with some of the harder-throwing backstops in the majors. The arm is Davis' loudest tool, with 70-grade arm strength and a plus arm action on his throws as well. It's less hyperbole than most players when saying Davis has a cannon. He's a defensive-first backstop however, and could make it to campus at Louisville because of that, though he has added 10-15 pounds of muscle over the offseason and homered this spring against some of the top pitchers in his area. Offensively, he has fringe-average bat speed and below-average power, though that seems to be trending in the right direction, with a bat path that can get a bit long at times.
