07:22 AM ET 08.23 | Well, that was fast -- and now Kevin Sumlin has junior Matt Joeckel and freshman Kenny Hill battling for the backup slot behind Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. KETK Sports has confirmed that Matt Davis has signed an NJCAA national letter of intent with Tyler Junior College. Coach Danny Palmer tells KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner that TJC is processing the paperwork through the NJCAA national office and the TJC administrative office. Palmer says he expects Davis on the Tyler Junior College campus [Friday]. Davis was a backup quarterback at Texas A&M. In high school, Rivals.com called his the third-best dual-threat quarterback in the country two years ago.

If I was JFF's backup, I'd think I might have a pretty good chance to see the field, given the circumstances. Of course, sounds like this guy may have been 3rd-4th string so his chances were probably a fair amount lower.

yep my bud, true FR K Hill, whose family IS wealthy, has already passed him up on depth chart

still say, if JFF sticks around, Hill passes him in 2 years

Here's a link to more info on the Davis transfer ... but we still don't know his motivation for transferring at such a late date.
