Staying home: Bulls land 4-star WR Davis



USF's big recruiting weekend has resulted in the highest-rated commitment in Skip Holtz's incoming class -- Jefferson receiver Andre Davis said Sunday he has accepted a scholarship to play for the Bulls in 2011.

Davis, rated as a four-star recruit by, is also USF's first commitment this year from Hillsborough or Pinellas counties. He committed during an official campus visit, joining Hollywood defensive end Clavion Nelson as the Bulls' most recent recruiting pledges.


Receiver has been a priority in the Bulls' final recruiting efforts -- the only other receiver committed to USF is Punta Gorda Charlotte's Alex Mut, though the Bulls do get veteran receivers A.J. Love and Sterling Griffin back after both missed the 2010 season with injuries.

Davis is rated as the nation's No. 42 receiver by Scout, and as the No. 68 receiver nationally and No. 97 overall prospect in Florida by, which has him as a three-star recruit. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound receiver has size and speed and chose USF over schools like Florida State, South Carolina, Rutgers and West Virginia.
