Last night, WVU added to their long list of 2021 walk-ons with the commitment of an in-state player, Donavin Davis from South Charleston.


In his commitment that he posted via Twitter, Davis was grateful for the opportunity to reach one of his “dreams” and play for the flagship university of his home state.

“Today, I am committing to play football at West Virginia University. I grew up watching and attending games with my grandfather and have been dreaming of being a part of this program most of my life. I know this will be my toughest challenge yet, but with God by my side, I know all things are possible!”


Davis played on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball during his high school career, wide receiver and strong safety respectively, according to his HUDL account. Standing at 5’11” and weighing 180 pounds, Davis is the prototypical size for both of those positions in the Big 12.


According to MaxPreps, Davis finished his South Charleston career with 39 catches for 854 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also added 10 carries for 35 yards on the ground.
