Lincoln High junior running back Justin Davis, The Record’s 2011 Player of the Year, has made his college choice: USC.
Davis announced his decision today. I talked to Justin at the Division I section track championships, and he told me the decision wasn’t a difficult one.
“I knew it as soon as I visited there,” Davis said. “I had a feeling I didn’t need to go anywhere else. The other visits were just to make sure I was making the right decision.”
Davis’ first visit was to USC. He followed with trips to Cal, Stanford and Washington to see if any other school could match what USC had to offer. None could.
“They’re doing special things down there and I want to be a part of it. They want me to be the power back that they’ve been missing. … Every California kid’s dream growing up is to play for USC. That’s what I wanted.”
