Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco offensive guard Wyatt Davis is the lead dog for top rated offensive linemen in California for the class 2017.
The 6-foot-4, 295-pound four-star has scholarship offers from all five
major conferences and Notre Dame. Davis earned his scholarship offer
from USC during the Trojans spring ball practices.
“I actually went down there on a visit and I just wanted to check it
out,” said Davis. “You know I live in California, and I haven’t really
been up there as much as I should have, but I went up there on a visit
and checked it out and I was able to meet all the coaches.
“Towards the end of my visit, that was when Coach Sark (Steve
Sarkisian) told me I was getting offered a scholarship. That was
definitely a surprise for me at the time because I didn’t think they
were going to pull the trigger at first, but it was a great
Having seen USC practice in person, Davis received a brief tour of the
facilities before meeting with Trojan offensive line coach, Bob
“He just seems like a great coach, and I was able to actually see him
coach up at the spring game too, and a couple of practices,” said
Davis. “I’d say that’s primarily the thing that’s intrigued me the most
“I’ve been in contact with him a lot and I’ve really started to develop
a good relationship with him. I’m really able to see the type of person
he is and he’s always been a great guy. I would definitely say Coach
[Bob] Connelly is what intrigues me the most about the program.”
Davis disposition on the field is what intrigues Bob Connelly about the
rising junior lineman.
“All the coaches have been saying they really like my aggressive and
nasty play, that’s what they said stood out the most,” said Davis.
“[Also] my good feet… they were all saying I had really good footwork,
and good balance.”
With scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Michigan, Oklahoma,
Miami and USC, Davis has a diverse list of college choices to choose
“I haven’t really started to narrow it down,” said Davis. “I’ve been
kind of just enjoying the ride right now… that’s what you could say.”
USC does have an in with Davis through Brave alum and current USC
starting offensive guard Damien Mama.
“I was actually able to spend some time with Damien,” said Davis. “I
was a freshman and he was a senior and he took me under his wing. I was
definitely able to spend some time with him… so, yeah, he’s been
recruiting me a little bit.”
In the context of recruiting, mamas are tough to beat.
“He said USC is just like St. John Bosco,” said Davis. “It’s another
big brotherhood. We’re all there for the same goal and the same
purpose, that’s what he’s been saying.”
