Davis Is All Trojan

The Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln five-star running back Justin Davis, a USC commit, took in a weekend at the Coliseum and in Los Angeles and can't wait to get his career started with the Trojans...

Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln running back Justin Davis got to go to the Coliseum for the first time on Saturday, and while his future school, USC, lost to Oregon, it further won over Davis.

"This was my first game at the Coliseum and it was exciting," said Davis. "It was a really good feeling, seeing what it's like in the future when I'm playing there, seeing the fans, the band and seeing the atmosphere. Getting to see the Trojan Walk, I can't wait to do that in a year. That's a tradition I want to be a part of."

Davis met USC commit Su'a Cravens for the first time and also talked with Nico Falah and Kylie Fitts, who he'd met previously.

"It was cool meeting Su'a, he's a great player, and then getting to talk with the other recruits," said Davis. "I saw Demorea Stringfellow (a Washington commit), and we were working on him too."

On Sunday, Davis spent more time with on campus, making the most of an unofficial visit.

"I talked with Coach (Lane) Kiffin and Coach (Clay) Helton and pretty much all of the coaches after the game and then I got to spend more time with them on Sunday," said Davis. "I also met all the running backs, like D.J. Morgan, Silas Redd and Curtis McNeal."

The whole experience made Davis anxious for the future.

"Yeah, the whole weekend is definitely making me look forward to college and I can't wait to be a part of it," said Davis.

Davis said he'd be visiting USC officially on December 7th, along with a handful of other commits.

"All the early enrollees are visiting on December 7th," said Davis.

And before he shows up in January, Davis will get to play with a number of future Trojans in the U.S. Army Bowl, which has double-digit USC commits on the roster.

"I'm really looking forward to that game," said Davis. "That's basically going to be the first real taste of college football because of all the D-I players. I'll playing against guys that I'll be playing against in college and that will be what college is like. It's definitely going to be exciting playing with a bunch of my future teammates since a lot will be playing in that game."

Davis, who committed to USC in May, said that some schools have tried to get involved with him, but he's never reciprocated the interest.

"Definitely there have been some schools that have tried, but they kind of knew after while I'm going to USC so they stopped getting their hopes up," said Davis. "I made the decision early because I knew USC was where I wanted to go and calling coaches, all that stuff you deal with in recruiting, I didn't want to have to. I don't miss that at all. It's nice and pleasant to focus on my football team."

This week, Davis, who's the top-ranked running back in the country, will start the CIF-SacJoaquin Section playoffs against Merced.
