Pitt Solid With Davis

Austintown Fitch (OH) athlete Demitrious Davis already has a Pitt offer, and became more impressed with Pitt following a junior day visit.

Demitrious Davis is Austintown-Fitch's quarterback, but based on his speed and playmaking ability as a junior, the 5-9, 170-pound athlete has 13 offers from all six of the BCS conferences. Recently, Davis was at Pitt's junior day.

"I had a real good time," Davis said. "I knew it was going to be a good visit, but I didn't' think it would be as good as it was. I didn't expect that."

Initially, the good part that Davis refers to was a closer look at Pitt's facilities.

"I really didn't know what their facilities were like," Davis said. "I didn't know they were that nice. The basketball game was crazy. I didn't expect it to be that noisy. The student section was real good."

Then, Davis met the coaching staff.

"The coaching staff was so real, there was no fakeness," Davis said. "They told you how it was, and how the recruiting was. It was (quarterbacks) coach (Todd) Dodge, the receivers coach, coach (Mike) Norvell. I like (Norvell) a lot. He's a really good guy. He was telling me they're bringing in two receivers. That's basically it."

Aside from meeting the position coaches, Davis' visit became even more positive when he got a glimpse of what Pitt's ‘high-octane' offense is going to be about. All it took was a look at the production from Tulsa's offense from 2010, when Todd Graham was the head coach there.

"At Tulsa, they had a 4,000-yard passes and three 1,000-yard receivers," Davis said. "That really stood out, seeing all those 1,000-yard receivers they had. That offense is high-tempo."

Davis already has plans to come back to Pittsburgh for a spring practice next week, and will be at Indiana the following week.
