Huskies Add Second Commitment

Another member of the Good Counsel "Fearsome Foursome" has made a verbal commitment. Good Counsel features four Division-1 recruits this year Drew Gloster, Tyrell Jones, Akeem Hebron, and Anthony Davis. Hebron has committed to Georgia just a few months ago, now a second member of the team has made his college decision.

Anthony Davis, a 5-foot-11, 230 pound fullback from Good Counsel High in Wheaton, Md., decided tonight that he was going to end the suspense and make his decision. Davis held offers from Connecticut, Kansas, Temple, and Akron.

"Coach Ambrose called me tonight, and I said I made my decision, I would like to commit," Davis said. "I haven't seen the campus yet, but everything I hear about it has been positive. It's not real far from home and I think I have a chance to play early. I felt Connecticut was the best fit for me. I'm taking my official visit there on 12/2) and I'm going up for the Louisville game (11/3)."

Davis plays both ways for good counsel. He plays fullback on offense and linebacker on defense. He has run for 250 yards and four touchdowns this season. On defense he has registered 40 tackles, three sacks, three forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery.

"I don't get to carry the ball a lot, but I have a lot of pancakes."

As is the case with any big decision in a teenager's life, family plays a key role in the decisions. His commitment to Connecticut was no different.

"They went through the process like me," he said. "They wanted me to go to Connecticut. It's not too far from home, but it's far enough. It was their favorite of the four schools and the best for me academically."

Davis joins Penfield, N.Y., wide receiver Kevin Poles as the two lone Huskies commitments.
