Pitt was the first program to extend an offer to Kobe Davis back in May, and tonight, Davis will finally be checking out the Panthers in person for the first time.
Davis is a 6-foot-2, 185-pound defensive back in the class of 2025 from Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va. Currently, Davis holds offers from Pitt and Boston College.
As he made his way to Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh Sports Now was able to speak with Davis about the visit and his early impressions of Pat Narduzzi’s program.
“I’ve heard that Pitt is a pretty good program, I’ve heard that they practice and share facilities with the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Davis said. “I’ve never been to Pittsburgh yet, and I just wanted to take a look at them and see things for myself and how good things are.
“When I got the offer, my coach put me on the phone with coach (Andre) Powell, who told me that he really liked the way that I play football. Pitt plays a lot of man-to-man, so that would be best for me. Right now, I play both sides of the ball and can move around the field, I can play both corner and safety, and I can play nickel and wide receiver. Coaches have told me that they like how I play man-to-man defense, I can be on my own island. I can also come downhill when I have to. But my strength is my ability on man-to-man.”

Davis tells PSN that his overall recruitment is going well and that aside from his two offers, he’s hearing from Virginia Tech, Virginia, James Madison, Coastal Carolina, Kentucky and Maryland.
When he arrives in town, Davis will first head over to Pitt’s facility on the South Side for a tour, before heading over to Acrisure Stadium for the game itself at 7 p.m. against Boston College.
“I’m looking forward to seeing Pitt’s facilities, also I want to talk with the defensive coordinator and the defensive backs coach,” Davis said. “Just want to see how comfortable I feel there.”
