Pitt and Penn State both made the cut Sunday as Gateway football star Derrick Davis narrowed his college recruiting options.

The rising senior announced a Top 7 on Twitter.

Joining the Panthers and Nittany Lions on his list were Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State and Southern Cal.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety, linebacker and running back had offers from nine of the first 10 teams in last year’s final BCS rankings. Among the schools he eliminated were Alabama, Florida, Oklahoma and Notre Dame.

He also eliminated West Virginia.

Davis had more than 2,000 yards from scrimmage and scored 28 touchdowns last season, leading Gateway to the WPIAL Class 5A title.

He was the 2019 TribLive HSSN Football Player of the Year.
