Broughton linebacker Drew Davis switched his college commitment from the University of Minnesota to hometown N.C. State on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound linebacker received a scholarship offer from State on Friday and made his decision today.
"I took some time to talk about the decision with my family and to pray," Davis said. "I have the utmost respect for the staff at Minnesota and I know they are all great coaches.
"But one of the things my family and I talked about was where would I be happiest if I wasn't playing football."
Davis (pictured above right) averaged about 15 tackles per game for Broughton.
He said the State coaches indicated that he would have an opportunity to contribute next year, probably was a weakside linebacker and in blitz packages.
"I can just about walk to the stadium," Davis said. "I was born and raised in Raleigh. I've been to State games for years. It is an exciting time."
Players may sign binding national letters of intent beginning on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
