QB Willing to Change

Penn State is hosting a junior day event this weekend which will feature a few high-profile recruits. One western Pennsylvania athlete will visit as well, but he’ll be in town Thursday, instead.

Pittsburgh (Pa.) Shaler quarterback Matt Davis (6-2, 210, 4.7) is like most high school quarterbacks in that he aspires to play the position in college. However, most of the looks Davis is getting are as an athlete. According to Davis, it’s something he’s willing to look at.

“I just want to play at the highest level,” Davis said. “I’ll do what I have to do to play. Obviously I prefer quarterback, but I’m open to a change if it’s necessary.”  

Davis has yet to receive his first offer, but he is receiving interest from a number of teams including Buffalo, Penn State, Akron, Toledo, Ohio, Kentucky, Marshall, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Kent state.  

“I called Coach [Tom] Bradley at Penn State, he said they have a quarterback that committed to them, but they may have an interest in me as an athlete or a defensive player,” Davis said. “I’m going up there tomorrow to take an unofficial visit and then I’m going to Richmond on Saturday.”

Last season at quarterback Davis completed 92 of 160 pass attempts for just under 1,000 yards. He threw seven touchdown passes and eight interceptions while scoring three rushing touchdowns.

“Coach really doesn’t want me to get hurt, so I don’t get to play much defense. He may put me in on passing situations,” Davis said.

Davis has attended camps at Cincinnati, Toledo, Kentucky, Marshall, Kent State, Pittsburgh, Ohio, Buffalo, Syracuse and Akron this summer.
