Class of 2021 safety Derrick Davis Jr. narrows his list down to 7

Class of 2021 prospect Derrick Davis has been highly recruited ever since the end of his freshman year campaign. Davis, a 6-foot-1, 194-pound safety prospect out of Pennsylvania, narrowed his list of schools down to 7 over the weekend.

USC, Clemson, Ohio State, LSU, Penn State, Pitt, and Georgia were the seven schools chosen out of the 25-plus that offered Davis.

Here are Derrick Davis’ rankings according to the three major recruiting websites:

247Sports

Grade: No. 89

Prospect ranking nationally: No. 89

Position ranking: No. 3

Prospect ranking in Pennsylvania: No. 4

ESPN

Grade: 87

Position ranking: No. 1

Regional ranking: No. 7

Prospect ranking in Pennsylvania: No. 2

RIVALS

Note: Davis is ranked as an outside linebacker on Rivals.

Grade: 5.9

Prospect ranking nationally: No. 81

Position ranking: No. 2

Prospect ranking in Pennsylvania: No. 4

During the 2019 season, his junior year campaign, Davis rushed 176 times for 1,507 yards (8.6 yards per carry) and scored 28 total touchdowns.

Several college football recruiting analysts at both Rivals and 247Sports feel that Penn State is the favorite to land Davis.

Davis has not set a date yet for his commitment. He has been invited to play in the Under Armour All-American Game.
