Former Pitt QB Davis Beville, Bets on Himself, Commits to Oklahoma

Published

on

Davis Beville would’ve served as Pitt’s third-string quarterback in 2022, sitting behind Kedon Slovis and Nick Patti as the pair battled for Kenny Pickett’s vacated spot, but instead, he’ll compete for a backup spot at Oklahoma.

After entering the transfer portal at the end of March, Beville has found a new home in either the Big 12 or SEC (depending upon Oklahoma’s status), committing to Oklahoma via Twitter Monday.

“Betting on myself!” Beville wrote on Twitter. “Boomer.”

Beville enrolled at Pitt as a three-star recruit out of Greenville, South Carolina in 2019. As the top-ranked recruit in the class and one of the highest-ranked quarterbacks landed by Pat Narduzzi, Beville was never able to make the impact many hoped he would.

After redshirting in 2019, Beville played sparingly during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. He completed 5-of-10 pass attempts in 2020 for 30 yards, with no touchdowns or interceptions. He played even more sparingly in 2021, before taking over for an injured Patti in the 2021 Peach Bowl — completing 14-of-18 pass attempts for 149 yards with a touchdown and interception.

He finished his career at Pitt with 207 yards and a touchdown on 17-of-22 pass attempts in eight appearances over the last two seasons.

Beville will have three seasons of eligibility remaining at Oklahoma, and he’ll fight for a backup role in 2022. Despite Caleb Williams leaving for USC (sound familiar?), Oklahoma brought in UCF transfer Dillion Gabriel.

Penn State transfer Micah Bowens, four-star freshman Nick Evers, Ben Harris and Ralph Rucker will compete with Beville for the backup position.

Best of luck but he certainly has an uphill battle there.

I was at the Peach Bowl. I can’t quite gather whether all of those 2nd Half Sacks were a function of indecision or Poor offensive line play. The play that hurt the most was the 3 and 1 with about 6:00 Minutes left. The toss to Vincent Davis got snuffed out. The late Interception after Driving down to the Red Zone was a Gut Punch. He kept PITT in the game as the Running Game was not effective. The Defense did a Stellar job all night, MSU had several more opportunities to Score and PITT did great in the back… Read more »

Only thing I can think of….perhaps he was offered the Sooner Schooner driver job.
The Schooner girls are pretty hot.
