Derrick Davis picks LSU over Penn State in another key recruiting loss for Lions

Penn State suffered yet another key recruiting loss Saturday afternoon when 4-star safety Derrick Davis from Gateway High School near Pittsburgh announced he’s going to LSU.

Penn State and Ohio State were the other two finalists for Davis. But he decided, after a recent visit to LSU, to take his talents to Louisiana.

Get the lowdown on Davis’ decision here from Mike Vukovcan of our sister site, Pittsburgh Sports Now.

“I was really impressed with the LSU coaches and when I took the visit down there, I just felt like that was the place to be and felt like home,” Davis told PSN. “For my parents to also say that they can see me be there, meant a lot to me. My mom could care less about football and was really impressed with the academics down there. It meant a lot to my family the pride that the program has with players graduating meant a lot. It was also impressive with how much money LSU has put into all of their facilities.”
