Pitt has signed a former WPIAL 4-star recruit and are hoping to add another one.
After signing former Peters Township and LSU 4-star safety Donovan McMillan, Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that Pitt is hosting Derrick Davis.
Davis is a former 4-star recruit from Gateway that signed with LSU. After two seasons, Davis entered the transfer portal after this past season.
Davis was a consensus Top 100 recruit that has a final five of LSU, Ohio State, Penn State, Georgia and Pitt.
Despite signing with LSU, Davis developed a solid relationship with Narduzzi and Cory Sanders. In fact, Pitt was the first school to offer Davis, which took place during his freshman season.
During his two seasons at LSU, Davis played in just six games and recorded just 47 snaps.
Davis (6’0, 200) is a tremendous athlete, capable of playing either side of the ball. PSN believes Pitt is initially looking at him at running back but that ultimately wouldn’t be determined until the spring.
Davis would be another big transfer portal addition for Pitt.
