It didn’t take long for Vincent Davis to decide on where he’ll play his final season of college football.
Just a week after entering the transfer portal, the former Pitt running back will go out West to play for the UNLV Rebels. Davis will be joining a familiar face, as the new offensive coordinator for UNLV is former Pitt wide receivers coach Brennan Marion.

During his career at Pitt, the 5-foot-8, 180-pound back from Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida rushed for 1,813 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns, to go along with 64 receptions for 413 yards and a touchdown.
This past season, Davis received 52 carries and rushed for 274 yards and a touchdown, obviously not receiving a ton of work due to the workload that Izzy Abanikanda and Rodney Hammond received. His best season as a Panther came in 2020 when he started nine games and rushed 143 times for 632 yards and six touchdowns.
Davis will have one season of athletic eligibility remaining.
