Fort Scott's Davis commits to C-USA school

Fort Scott is having an outstanding season and one of the reasons for that has been the leadership of QB Dominique Davis (6-4, 210) who transferred out of Boston College after two years in Chestnut Hill. caught up with the talented signal-caller and he updated us on why he left as well as which Conference USA school will be his home in January...

Davis was a standout prep at Lakeland High School in Florida and had several D-1 offers, but decided he wanted to play ACC ball and signed with Boston College. However, once he got there he wasn't sure he wanted to be there any longer.

"Sometimes, things just don't work out," Davis told "It just wasn't the right fit for me and I just wanted to get away and start fresh.

"When I was talking to coach (Jeff) Sims, who is the head coach out here, all he talked about was school, school, school and nothing about football," Davis said. "That was such a change for me because all coaches, when they are talking to you, they all talk about wins and getting you in to play football. I know all that stuff, but when coach Sims started talking about getting me graduated and making sure I had something to prepare me for life after football, that's what impressed me the most and that's why I chose Fort Scott."

Also helping matters was the talented players that would be around him, something that has allowed Davis to complete 50% of his passes for 1,243 yards, six touchdowns and seven intercetpions while leading the Greyhounds to a 9-0 record including a big 14-10 win over national power Butler last weekend.

"We're having a great season and we want to keep it rolling definitely," Davis noted. "We're going to keep coming and working and we'll see how things end up."

On the recruiting front, Davis hasn't been hearing from a lot of schools, but one stepped up with an offer and today he decided to end things before they even got started.

"East Carolina is really the only school that's been seriously talking to me and I actually committed to them today," Davis said. "I called and talked to coach (Skip) Holtz and he was really excited and said he's glad to have me coming in.

"ECU offers me the chance at early playing time since Patrick Pinkney is graduating. I'm real excited about it and happy I know where I'm going."

Davis is a 4-2-4 player, thus he needs to complete his AA degree before he can sign with a school. He is on pace to finish up in December and sign his letter with ECU and plans to be on campus in January and he'll have two years to play two once he steps on campus.
