Former Archer star Kyle Davis decided recently to turn professional, signing with the Canadian Football League’s Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Davis, a wide receiver, entered the NCAA Transfer Portal in January after deciding to leave Florida Atlantic. He spent a year at FAU, but did not play.

The former Super Six selection and top recruit played slightly less than two seasons at Auburn, where he caught 19 passes for 458 yards and two touchdowns. He was dismissed from the team in Oct. 2017.
