Davis makes the switch

Cerritos DE Ryan Davis (6-4, 255) saw recruiting pick up late in the season and committed to Cal in mid-December. He thought he was finished with recruiting, but another intriguing opportunity presented itself this past weekend and he took a trip to Washington to see what the Huskies had to offer and he came away so impressed that he's decided to make the switch and become a Husky.

"I just got back from my visit to Washington this afternoon and I wanted to talk to my parents and family about it before I talked with anyone about it," Davis told Dawgman.com on Sunday evening. "It was a great visit and the players and coaches were great and I decided Washington was where I wanted to be.

"I'm a Husky."

Davis had committed to California back in December after his official visit, but what the Bears had planned for him as far as his position went, it wasn't what he thought would fit him best.

"Cal wanted me at linebacker, like what Zach Follet played, and I just didn't see myself in that role," Davis said. "Washington told me they wanted me with my hand down on the ground, rushing the quarterback and that's what I do best."

He sure does.

As a sophomore, Davis totaled 32 tackles, 17 quarterback hurries, 8 sacks, 11 tackles for loss, 3 fumble recoveries, and 2 forced fumbles and was named All-Conference and All-Region for his efforts.

In addition to his offers from Washington and Cal, Davis also had offers from Akron, Hawaii, Kansas, North Carolina State, UNLV, New Mexico State, New Mexico and interest from Oregon, Oregon State, Washington State and Arizona State as well.

Davis will sign his letter or intent on Wednesday and he's is on pace to graduate in May. He'll have three years to play two the moment he stops on campus.
