After getting a commitment from Maryland cornerback Judson Tallandier, Pitt received an pleasant surprise when Virginia outside linebacker Wendell Davis.
Davis becomes Pitt’s sixth verbal commitment and first commitment from a linebacker which is important because two other linebacker targets recently committed elsewhere (Vinny DePalma/Boston College and Chance Campbell/Maryland).
Davis (6-2, 215) is a 247 Sports 3-star recruit from Richmond, Virginia with offers from Michigan State, Boston College, Duke, Rutgers and Central Florida. Davis picked up his Michigan State offer last week.
This is a nice get for Pitt because Virginia is a state that Pitt has recruited but hasn’t had much success.
