Penn State is currently listed as the favorite to land the hometown prospect. The Nittany Lions have 90 percent of the “Crystal Ball” predictions on 247Sports.
Davis Jr. is a 6-foot-1, 194-pound prospect out of Monroeville, Pennsylvania. He’s the No. 2 player at his position and the No. 52 overall player in the 2021 class, per 247Sports’ Composite Rankings. Davis Jr. is ranked the No. 4 player in the state of Pennsylvania.
The four-star prospect would be a huge addition to James Franklin’s 2021 class. The Nittany Lions’ class currently ranks No. 8 in the Big Ten and No. 26 in the country. Davis Jr. would become Penn State’s second-highest rated commitment in the class.
