Taking a first look at Torrance Davis, you’d likely guess he’s college football player.
When you did that you’d be wrong. Davis is just a junior at Glenville High School in Cleveland, Ohio. However, his size (6’2”, 220) and skill set has caused his high school coach Ted Ginn, Sr. To refer to him as a “manchild.”
Davis current offer list includes Pitt, Michigan State, Cincinnati, Kentucky, Indiana, Iowa State, Rutgers, Tennessee, Toledo and Virginia.
Although we’re just hearing about this offer from Pitt now, Davis received it last month. The reason for it just becoming public is Davis just joined Twitter and recently started posting some of his offers.
Davis running style is a combination of power and speed as he’s been clocked running a 4.4. He’s also a three down back because of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.
”I’d say one of my biggest strengths is my patience as a runner,” said Davis. “As I’m in my stance, I read the defense so I can try and see what the defense is trying to do pre-snap. I pattern my style after Le’Veon Bell, trying to be patient and wait and let the hole develop and then explode and go.”

Davis tells me that his chief recruiter at Pitt has been Archie Collins, someone he’s grown to really like.
“Coach Collins is a great coach. Ever since he offered me, we’ve been talking a lot ever since and I’m happy about that.”
”I’m interested in Pitt because of the way they’ve shown they care about me,” said Davis. “Also, a lot of great backs have come from Pitt like last year when they had two backs rush for over 1,000 yards.”
Davis tells PSN that he’ll be making upcoming spring visits to Rutgers, Kansas, Kentucky and Pitt. He’ll be making his visit to Pitt next Saturday, March 23.
“I’m going to enjoy the recruiting process because it’s something that I’ve always dreamed about. I had nothing, no offers in November and then they all started coming out of the blue. 15 offers came real fast. Honestly, I thought my recruiting would blow up at the end of my senior year.”
Davis patterns himself after Le’Veon Bell, let’s see if he ends up playing college ball in Bell’s former home.
