On Tuesday, Ohio natives Chris and Demitrious Davis announced on their Twitter pages they will transfer from Pittsburgh to Kentucky. The Davis twins are Ohio natives (surprise!), and will have to sit out next season due to transfer rules. Starting in 2014, the Davis’ will have three years of eligibility left at UK. In high school, the Davis’ played many positions in a spread offense of their own. These guys are great athletes and will be huge assets to UK offensive coordinator Neal Brown. Demitrious played quarterback in high school, and was expected to be used as a wildcat quarterback and slot receiver at Pitt. Chris was expected to play as a defensive back or a receiver. The twins were highly recruited out of high school, ranked as the 39th and 40th best prospects in the state of Ohio for the 2012 class. Due to a coaching change at Pittsburgh, the offensive philosophy changed with the new coaching staff. The Davis’ and their family decided the “fit” was not going to be the same. The Davis twins will join Nebraska transfer running-back Braylon Heard as incoming transfer players for the 2014 season. Even though the prospects for 2013 looks to be on the upswing, the 2014 looks to be the year of an even bigger impact. Earlier in the week, the Rivals.com page revealed to the world that Kentucky had the #1 recruiting class in the nation. Unfortunately for Kentucky fans, a glitch in the system caused the Rivals page to show the ‘Cats as having one more recruit than they actually had. With the commitment of 2-star offensive tackle Derrick Kelly, the ‘Cats secured that #1 spot. Kelly committed to Kentucky the day after the glitch and propelled the ‘Cats to the top for real. Kelly is listed as 6’5”, 268 lbs. from Havana, Florida. Kelly is not ranked by position.
