Pitt Offer Arrived Too Late for 2023 3-Star WPIAL Star Davoun Fuse

Published

on

After receiving his first Power Five offer from Rutgers in April and then committing to them in May, Washington High School star Davoun Fuse appears totally committed to the Scarlet Knights.

This became a topic of conversation because over the weekend, Fuse picked up his second Power Five offer and it came from the hometown Pitt Panthers.

While competing in the PIAA Track & Field Championships in Shippensburg, Pa., Fuse received a call from Dave Borbely, who informed him that Pitt was extending him a scholarship offer.

Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Fuse this morning to talk to him about Pitt and it looks as though the interest that the Panthers are showing is going to be too late.

“Prior to getting the offer, I didn’t have any communication with Pitt,” Fuse told Pittsburgh Sports Now. “My head coach, who played at Pitt, has been talking to them since I transferred to Washington my sophomore year. He was talking to Coach Borbely who told him that they wanted to offer. Coach Borbely then called me, and we were talking about it. He talked to me about making an official visit and was telling me that I was an amazing athlete. He was watching my tape and sent me a screenshot of one of the first plays on my Hudl tape and it was of my hurdling someone. He said that was awesome.”

Fuse admits that the offer comes with mixed emotions because he appreciates getting an offer from the hometown school but admits that it probably came too late.

“I’ve been around and they’re just offering me now, so,” Fuse said. “I’ve attended some of their camps and I work out regularly at their facility (with Evolve/210ths). This offer comes with mixed emotions, I’m happy I got it.

“But I haven’t really spoken to them since getting the offer, but I’m pretty sure that I’m all Rutgers now. Like I said, I’ve been around for a while and they knew about me and didn’t show any interest in me until now. If they would’ve shown interest before, it could have been different.”

We are getting better talent from other areas. I don’t care where they are from as long as they are better. Local kids got Pitt to 6-6 for how many years?

You telling me Pitt couldn’t use him?
It’s the narrative…his coach played at Pitt, he’s in the WPIAL and you don’t even offer or show a bit of interest? Coaches talk and maybe this kid isn’t a fit but the also hold grudges and they might steer the next really good fit away from Duzz

Good example was the Quips. Use to be a pipeline between Aliquippa and Oakland then something happens and we were persona non grata. Hopefully Devonshire reopens the pipeline even though he came via Kentucky.

He would help Pitt, but would be a much better fit at Penn St.

Too much Florida recruiting and offers, when those kids don’t commit to pitt for whatever reason, coaches turn to local pa kids and as you can see here ..can be too late.
