Pitt 2019 Junior Series: Davis Beville
Davis Beville, Quarterback, 6-6, 205, Greenville High School (Simponsville, South Carolina)
3-Star Recruit with offers from offers from Pitt and Cincinnati
For their 2019 recruiting class, Pitt will be looking to add one quarterback to their roster.
At this point, nine offers have been extended to junior quarterbacks. One that you should keep your eye on is Davis Beville from Simpsonville, South Carolina.
Beville is a player with a big arm and is equally as talented running with the ball. In other words, he’s your prototypical dual-threat quarterback.

The Pitt staff saw enough talent and liked him enough that last October they were the first school to offer him a scholarship.
“Over the last couple of months, I’ve been in touch with the Pitt coaches a ton. I recently got an offer from Cincinnati and have been hearing from NC State, North Carolina, Duke, South Carolina and even Stanford stopped by,” said Beville.
Recruits can tell when schools have real interest in them and Beville definitely feels that from the Pitt coaching staff.
“It definitely feels amazing to know that a school really wants you and makes you feel like a priority. When I came up to Pitt last year for a visit, I was able to talk with everyone and tour everywhere, everything was first class and that meant the world to me.”
Beville tells me that he hears the most from Shawn Watson who will every once in a while will send him a quote of the day or something for him to focus on.
“Coach Narduzzi will also text me too to make sure I know that I’m still a big priority for them and that they really want me. I think that’s just awesome,” said Beville.
Since he’s been in contact now with him for over a year, I got Beville’s impression of Watson and what he feels like it would be like to play for him.
“He’s been great to me and he really knows his stuff. He’s been very easy to talk to and I feel like I can always reach out to him.”
Beville tells PSN that he’s talking with his father about some upcoming trips to schools that they’d like to make. He plans on visiting schools that are showing the most interest in him.
As you can imagine, he plans on making a return visit to Pitt to check out the campus again.
“At the end of the day, I’m going to pick the school that’s best for me. There’s obviously other factors that I’ll consider, possibly like Pitt being the first to offer which was awesome to me. I need to pick a place that feels like home and that I’m going to love for the next four years.”
