ACCOLADES: Davis was twice named a member of the American Family Insurance All-USA Football Team and was a U.S. Army All-American. He was named the U.S. Army’s Glenn Davis Award winner “for epitomizing the Army’s high standard for excellence in community service, education and athletic distinction.”

DAVIS SAYS: “Ohio State was my real dream school. What really stood out to me was the whole if football didn’t work out what they will do for you. The programs that Coach (Urban) Meyer has and the type of people he brings in to speak to us, I felt like that was really big. It’s also a great school. I didn’t even know that. It felt like home.”

EXPERT’S TAKE: “Away from the gridiron, you won’t find a more polite, good-natured, jovial kid than Davis. He always has a smile, is always accommodating to talk to anyone who asks and never has a bad thing to say about anyone. The second that whistle blows, however, something changes and Davis is able to flip that proverbial switch and turns into a completely different person.” – Greg Biggins

PERSONAL: He is the son of Inge and Duane Davis. Duane is an actor and has played athletes such as Joe Louis and Buster Douglas over the years. Davis’ grandfather, Willie Davis, is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who played defensive end for the Green Bay Packers. Wyatt also played basketball in high school, and his brother, David, played football at Washington State and Cal.

2017 OUTLOOK: Just like last season, there's one open starting spot at offensive guard for Ohio State. Last year true freshman Michael Jordan won the job at left guard, and Davis comes to Ohio State as the better prospect on paper. He's not an early, enrollee, though, so winning a starting slot might be tough

COMMIT DATE: June 24, 2016
