Less than a week after Texas wide receiver Mike Davis defended his cheap shot at the knees of Iowa State's Deon Broomfield, the senior issued a statement through the Longhorns' official YouTube channel.

"I would like to provide a full retraction of anything I said that wasn't apologetic for the play last Thursday," Davis said. "I will do everything I can to learn from all aspects of the situation, and nothing like this will ever happen again."

On Monday, Davis told ESPN that he believed the issue was taken too far and that critics "blew it out of proportion."

Davis received a public reprimand from the Big 12 for the personal foul, per DallasNews.com.
