More Company for Fla. QB

Pittsburgh has officially offered arguably the second-best quarterback in the state of Florida in Dexter Davidson. Find out more in this exclusive on Pitt's latest scholarship offer.

"Pittsburgh officially offered me," Dexter Davidson said. "I like them a lot and they've sort of jumped towards the top. I'd say they're pretty high on my list right now. They're up there with BYU, Kentucky and Tulane."

According to Davidson, Pittsburgh had sent an offer a little over a week ago, but he did not hear about it officially until a few days ago.

"Coach Wannstedt called my Dad and they talked for a while," Davidson said. "He really likes Pittsburgh and they seem really high on me. They've got a new coordinator and it sounds like a great situation for me."

The Coconut Creek (Fla.) native moved to Florida from Lexington (Ky.) as a freshmen, where he's starred at North Broward Prepatory for the past two seasons. North Broward Prep was recently the home to 2005 Georgia signee Mike Moore and currently Dan Marino's son, Mike.

Marino has been tutoring the young Davidson, whom he ultimately referred new coach Dave Wannstedt too. Davidson passed for 2,500 yards with 27 touchdowns a year ago and as a sophomore he threw for 39 touchdowns, which was a Broward County record.

"I'm not completely ready to make a decision yet," Davidson said. "I'm still uncertain about my whole camp situation. I'd like to hear from Miami (Fla.) since they are so close and I might head up to Auburn, cause they said they'd offer if I went up there."

Davidson is certain he'll be making a road trip at some juncture this summer to see Kentucky, Ohio State and Pittsburgh.
