For a team coming off of a 2-10 campaign, the Kentucky Wildcats are having a tremendous offseason under new football head coach Mark Stoops, as the former Florida State defensive coordinator has continued to build for the future with commitments from not only highly touted high school recruits, but proven college players looking for new opportunities elsewhere.
A pair of Ohio natives and football twins, Demitrious and Chris Davis announced yesterday that they will transfer from Pittsburgh to UK. They were redshirt freshmen at Pitt last season, and will now sit out this season and have three years of eligibility starting in 2014.
While the two were finishing up their visit with the coaching staff yesterday at UK to wrap up the transfer process, we got a hold of Chris to talk about what led to their decision to move to Kentucky.
WBN: How are you guys today?
I’m great! Feels good to be a wildcat!
WBN: How long has Kentucky been recruiting you and your brother, and what made them stand out enough for you to transfer there?
The last staff was recruiting us a little bit but we started talking to them heavy when I asked for my release papers. I fell in love with the staff and his is a beautiful campus.
Were here right now and the visit was great. The coaches showed us nothing but love
WBN: What are the coaches projecting you and your brother to play position-wise? Will it be one set position, or will they be lining you guys up all over the field?
They told me I would be playing cornerback, and my brother (Demitrious) will be a running back/ wide receiver.
