A little more than two weeks after his commitment to UM wasn't accepted by the Hurricanes due to a miscommunication among the staff about whether he actually had a Miami offer, junior Somerset wide receiver Daewood Davis has decided to commit to Syracuse.
He took to Twitter to make his announcement.
Like to say I'm officially committed to Syracuse #GoOrange🏈🏈— Daewood Davis (@daewood_davis) June 29, 2015
"I feel Syracuse was right for me because I feel that we can can make history with the Orange," Davis said in a message to the Miami Herald.
The 6-2 class of 2017 prospect with reported 4.3-second speed in the 40-yard dash initially announced a commitment to UM on June 12 but then found his commitment was not accepted. He said he was offered a month earlier by defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio, but the rest of coaching staff was unaware of the offer he thought he had on the table.
At that point Davis said UM was telling him it would eventually accept his commitment, and Davis was still listing UM as his leader but opted to commit to Syracuse on Monday.
