In the wake of Todd Graham stepping down as head coach at the Pitt on Wednesday to take the Arizona State job, Austintown (Ohio) Fitch three-star athlete Chris Davis discussed where things stand with his commitment to the Panthers.
"I'm still 100 percent Pitt, but I might take a visit somewhere," Davis said. "We really have to sit down and talk as a family."
Davis and his brother Demitrious Davis committed to the Panthers back in July, and whatever they do going forward they will do together.
"We're definitely not splitting up," Chris Davis said.
With a major transition going on at Pitt, other schools are inquiring as to the status of the Davis' brother's commitments. Arkansas and Ohio State each made contact today, according to Davis, and Arizona has been closely pursuing for the last few days. Former Pitt assistant coach Tony Gibson, who was Davis' primary recruiter at Pitt, left last week to join Rich Rodriguez's staff in Tuscon.
"I know Coach Gibson and Coach [Calvin] Magee are flying in on Friday to talk with us," Davis said. "They told us they want us to come on an official [visit] in January, but I'm still not sure what I want to do yet."
Although Davis has seen his primary recruiter and the head coach leave since making his commitment, the three-star athlete still sees a lot he likes at Pittsburgh.
"I think we are bringing in a real good class," Davis said. "I've been talking to a lot of recruits like Rushel Shell, [Chad] Voytik and a couple of the o-linemen… even some kids that did not commit yet. I think everyone is on the same page of trying to keep the class together because we know it is a good class."
