Before choosing where to run or which receiver to throw to Thursday night, Elizabeth Forward football standout JaQuan Davidson had a much bigger decision in his hands:
Where to go to college.
Davidson, who was recruited as an "athlete," elected to stay close to home, choosing Pitt over his other finalists, West Virginia and Western Michigan.
Davidson announced his decision in a Root Sports interview Thursday afternoon. The network showed footage of the announcement during its broadcast of Elizabeth Forward's game against West Mifflin.
It's still unclear what position Davidson (6 feet 3, 175 pounds) will play at Pitt. Davidson said some coaches on the Pitt staff like him as a wide receiver, while others project him to play defensive back.
He will not play quarterback, his position at Elizabeth Forward.
Davidson became Pitt's 18th commitment from the class of 2014.
He's the sixth player from the WPIAL to pick the Panthers, joining Upper St. Clair's Rori Blair, Shady Side Academy's Dennis Briggs, Bethel Park's Mike Grimm, Fox Chapel's Quintin Wirginis and North Allegheny's Elijah Zeise.
