Lions Make Cut as Derrick Davis Narrows List to Three; Announcement Coming Saturday

Note: This story ran earlier this week and has been updated with the watch information and Davis’ recent interview following a game.

Gateway’s Derrick Davis has cut his list of finalists down from five to just three teams.

Following a weekend visit to LSU, Davis told Nittany Sports Now parter site Pittsburgh Sports Now on Monday that his three finalists are Ohio State, Penn State and LSU, with Pitt and Georgia eliminated.

The four-star safety plans on announcing his final decision this Saturday around 4 p.m. in his hometown of Monroeville. That announcement will take place during the Lions’ game against Maryland.

Fans can click here to watch Saturday’s announcement live at Pittsburgh Sports Now.

Penn State has always been viewed as the favorite for Davis because of his relationship with the Nittany Lions coaching staff, especially former Gateway head coach and current PSU assistant head coach and secondary coach Terry Smith.

However, over the last two weekends, Davis has made two visits to Columbus and then this past weekend, he made a trip to Baton Rouge that must have made favorable impressions on him.

While at LSU, Davis had the chance to walk around their campus, see where their dorms are located and was able to see their impressive downtown with his family.

In terms of who has the advantage, they all appear to be even but because of how long they’ve been recruiting him, the staffs at Ohio State and Penn State have had the best chance to form relationships with Davis and his family.

Meanwhile, the Gators are playing in the WPIAL Class-5A semifinals on Friday night against Peters Township.
