Wannstedt asked Davis if he would commit if they offered and Davis said, "I want to be a Panther, yes I will commit". Davis and his family are heading to Pittsburgh this weekend to pick up his paperwork and take an official visit.
C. J. Davis, 6-3 and 280 pounds, is being brought in as a guard/center. Newly
hired offensive line coach Paul Dunn was recruiting Davis while he was
"Coach Dunn always liked me as an offensive lineman, Kentucky needed
defensive lineman so that's what they wanted me for," Davis said.
Pittsburgh officially offered Davis yesterday, and the standout athlete
couldn't of been happier as Coach Wannstedt visited West Allegheny.
"The old staff really didn't recruit me much, I never showed much
interest either," Davis said. "I started going to games there and stuff,
it's a great school and it grew on me I love it there."
Davis had taken previous visits to Bowling Green (1/14), Boston College
(1/21), Akron (12/3), Kentucky (12/10). "I liked the trips, but my heart
was in Pittsburgh," Davis said
Academically Davis still has some work to do.
"When my final report card comes out in June I'll be fine, My core has
to go up from a 2.3 to a 2.4," Davis said.
What is Davis' take on the new regime in Pittsburgh?
"We're going to be a powerhouse in the Big East, as long as we keep
getting big recruits," Davis said.
Davis is the fourth WPIAL player to commit to coach Wannstedt since the
beginning of January.
