Last season, Davis led the Indians offensively with a .429 batting average and a .517 on base percentage as he split time at catcher and designated hitter. Davis, who picked up 36 RBI on 63 hits, added nine doubles, two triples, two home runs and scored 42 runs.

In the 2020 COVID-shortened season, Davis hit .385 with eight RBI, two doubles, one triple and one home run in 10 games.

“Riley has been an asset to our program,” said Collier. “He bought in to what we are doing here. We expect big things out of him this year, and we are excited about him being in our lineup.”

Davis is the third member of this year’s team to sign to the next level prior to the season, joining Connor Gardner, a Delta State University signee and Will Armistead who signed with the University of Southern Mississippi.

The Indians are scheduled to start the 2022 season Feb. 8 in Fulton against Bevill State Community College at 1 and 4 p.m.
