Coaches, Academics Focus For Latest Visit

Chris Davis and his twin brother Demitrious have taken their time, taking a look at a different aspect of Pitt each time they come for a visit. This time, it was a chance to see the Pitt coaches in action, as well as a look at academics.

Chris Davis took his fourth unofficial visit to Pitt this past Saturday. Each time, the focus has been different. In March, it was Junior Day. He came later in March for a spring practice, then again in April for the spring game.

This time, with Pitt conducting its first prospect camp of the summer, Davis had a new approach. He wanted to watch the Pitt coaches in action with the prospects in attendance, watching how they coach. He also had another objective in mind.

"My goal (Saturday), was I just wanted to see the academic facilities," Davis said. "I also wanted to see Coach (Michael) Norvell, coach.

"I just wanted to see who else they would probably recruit. I just like coming out here to see the competition; just see how all the coaches do, basically."

Will there be a fifth visit? Probably not. There are no other unofficial visits set—or at least a list of set dates in mind to check out other schools—though it is possible to see some more schools.

"I really don't have to see anything else," Davis added. "I've been here four times. They've shown me everything, basically."

One thing is for sure. With over 20 offers, it's unlikely he'll workout at any prospect camps. There may be other visits, but as of now, no visits have been set up.

"I'm not doing anymore (camps)," Davis said. "We really don't have anything else scheduled right now. We might hit some more schools for visits."

As a junior in 2010, Davis caught 43 passes for 406 yards and eight touchdowns. He also rushed for 356 yards on the ground with another four touchdowns. On defense, he had two interceptions, and also returned a kickoff for a touchdown on his way to first-team all-league and second-team all-state honors.
