Former Villages High School football standout Noor Davis has been waived by the Minnesota Vikings.

The undrafted free agent linebacker out of Stanford reportedly will not be making the practice squad as the team trims down its roster in preparation for the start of the NFL season.

He was signed during training camp as a linebacker.

Davis ruffled feathers when he left the Villages High School for Leesburg High School. But as a Yellow Jacket, Davis was rated the second-best outside linebacker by ESPN and won the 2011 High School Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker.

His father played for the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. His uncle, Andre Tippett, is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
