Justin Davis said he was thrilled to get an offer from USC during its junior day Sunday but the four-star running back did not commit immediately.
The Stockton (Calif.) Lincoln running back said he wants to return home and still consider all his options. Getting an offer from the Trojans was huge, though, and he's definitely going to consider them even more as his recruitment continues.
"It is really nice to get that offer," Davis said.

"(Coach Lane Kiffin) said that they have a limited amount of scholarships so giving me one would be big and I really respected that. I had a really nice time talking with him.
"I did not commit, not yet. I still have a lot to think about but it's something to think about because it's a really prestigious school. I like what they're doing down there. I'm not committing but it's something to really think about."
Davis, rated No. 48 in the early 2013 rankings by Rivals.com, would be a big-time commitment for any program. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound prospect rushed for 2,380 yards and 36 touchdowns in his junior season.
The Stockton Lincoln standout said one of his reasons for visiting USC this weekend was to get an offer. It was mission accomplished.
"That was pretty much my main goal coming down here because the way they're talking to me, I was really feeling them already," Davis said. "It meant a lot to come down here and get that offer.
"I'm still in the process of taking everything in and sitting down and thinking about everything. I haven't gotten to any decision yet. It's definitely exciting. I've never been through anything like this in my life. My best move right now is to take it slow."
Other than USC, Davis also has offers from Boise State, Cal, Michigan, Ole Miss, Northwestern, Oklahoma, Oregon State, UCLA, Washington and Washington State.
