New WSU offer out to... 2016 QB?

THERE’S NEVER A dull week when it comes to Washington State recruiting, is there? On Wednesday, with the Sun Bowl just three days away, the WSU coaches extended a new offer out to class of 2016 quarterback Quentin Davis, out of St. John Bosco. The star senior, who threw 40 touchdowns this fall, tells this offer could be a game-changer in his recruitment. But what about QB commit Cody Brewer?

We’ll get to Brewer in a second.

For Davis, though, the offer from the WSU staff rolled through this afternoon. CF.C asked him if he was offered as a quarterback and Davis said yes. He and the Cougar coaches had been in contact for about a month.

“I spoke with Coach Roy Manning and he basically told me they’ve been interested in me for a while and then he asked me some questions. Then, he told me they wanted to offer me a scholarship.

“I was ecstatic. This is my first Pac-12 offer and I couldn’t wait to tell my parents about it. Washington State is definitely my No. 1 right now and I’ll be taking a visit there next month.”

IN ADDITION TO WSU, the Bellflower, Calif., product holds an offer from Fresno State, where he’s also planning to visit next month.

The question naturally begs, though: What about Brewer? The Cougar coaches landed a verbal from the Texas native earlier this cycle and he’s been rock solid with his recruitment since. 

“I know they’ve got another quarterback committed right now,” Davis said. “I don’t know much about him other than that.”

On Wednesday night, CF.C spoke with Brewer’s dad, Fred Brewer, who said Cody is planning on taking his official visit to Washington State on either Jan. 15 or Jan. 22. Davis said he’s planning on taking his official visit to WSU either Jan. 15 or Jan. 22, as well. 

AS A SENIOR this season, the 6-1, 205-pound Davis put up video-game type numbers, throwing for 3,612 yards, 40 touchdowns and only four interceptions. The dual-threat prospect added 450 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.

Davis is ranked three stars and the No. 82 quarterback in the country by Scout also lists him as the No. 22 QB out West and the No. 11 signal caller in California.

“Them (WSU) being my first Pac-12 offer mean a lot,” Davis said. “I feel really honored and blessed that they have the trust in me to play the position. It’s an insane offense. They’re in the Pac-12 and their QB right now Luke Falk is putting up insane numbers.”

Davis added that he’s planning on speaking with WSU head man Mike Leach on Thursday at some point to discuss more about the Air Raid offense.

“I’m going to commit to a school sometime soon,” David said. “If something intrigues me, I could make my decision. I have to talk to my parents and coaches before I decide anything. It could come later this month, we’ll see. 

“My strongest quality as a quarterback is than I can manage and win games. I’m just a competitor in everything I do. I bring a nature to the game that others don’t.”

NOTE: Wondering why you can't find much film from Davis's sophomore or junior years? Prior to this season, Davis was the backup at St. John Bosco to star quarterback Josh Rosen, who is now the starting quarterback at UCLA as a true freshman.
