Florida running back Vincent Davis is the fifth commit in Pitt’s Class of 2019.
Davis, a 5-foot-9, 170-pound back is from Cardinal Gibbons High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, the same high school as 2018 Pitt commit Marquis Williams.
Davis was rated as a three-star prospect and chose Pitt over offers from Boston College, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse, Wake Forest and others. His Top Seven, which came out just three days ago, included Georgia State, Kent State, Pitt, Marshall, Illinois, Kentucky and Wake Forest.
Davis is the third Florida recruit to commit to Pitt our of the five in the 2019 class, and it seems that Pat Narduzzi’s strategy of bringing a whole slew of southern prospects up at the same time has worked out, as five more players have committed to Pitt this weekend following Davis, Miami Northwestern defensive tackle Calijah Kancey and Greenville, South Carolina quarterback Davis Beville. They were three of the 15 southern prospects Narduzzi and company had at Pitt this weekend.
“After taking my official visit to the University of Pittsburgh and being greeted with hospitality, and like family by the players in a brotherhood manner I would like to announce that I am 100% committed to The University of Pittsburgh,” Davis wrote on Twitter.
The addition of Davis should begin to solidify Pitt’s running back depth for 2019 and beyond. Expected 2018 co-starters Darrin Hall and Qadree Ollison are both seniors coming into the year, meaning that there will be plenty of extra playing time to go around when the 2019 class arrives on campus.
