Dominic Davis had landed some major offers in the last few months with UCLA, USC and Washington jumping on board but Washington State could not be counted out either because of its prolific offense.
The Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany three-star prospect committed to the Cougars on Thursday and said the offense played a big role and that he was thrilled about how he would be used in the attack.
Primarily a running back in high school, Davis has decided to move to slot receiver for college and Washington State had everything he was looking for.
"The main thing was I made up my mind I was going to play slot in college," Davis said.
"I didn't think I was too much of a running back on the next level and that kind of crossed out Washington and USC. That left UCLA and Washington State. I did my homework on them. I was very pleased on how they passed the ball around.
"My main position there will be slot. They'll probably stick me in the backfield but my main position will be slot receiver."
Davis, a 5-foot-10, 175-pound speedster who had a fantastic showing at the USC Rising Stars Camp among other stops this off-season, said he's happy to have the recruiting process over. He made his decision and wants to stick with it.
There's a chance he could take some other official trips but the Alemany standout said he's sticking with Washington State and doesn't expect to be wooed by any other programs.
"I'm very excited," Davis said. "I'm just so relieved that I can trust that I made the best decision for myself.
"My mom still wants me to go on my visits. She wants me to keep an open mind but I'm pretty solid on my decision. I'll see what the other schools have to offer."
