According to Sir Larry Vaught of Danville, Chris and Dimitrious Davis have filed an appeal with the NCAA to allow them to suit up for Kentucky this coming season. Transfer rules currently have the twins sitting out the 2013 season, but they’re hoping the NCAA will grant them immediate eligibility due to a late coaching change at Pitt prior to their freshman season.
The twins’ father told Vaught, “The coaching change came so close to signing day. The coaching staff came in after the bowl game and when they made a home visit with us, I think it was maybe a week or two before national signing day. I don’t know what the NCAA will say. They were at Pitt, but they did not play. We are hoping that can be a factor in our favor.”
Kentucky could certainly use the twins immediately at wide receiver and cornerback, but don’t get your hopes up. It’s very unlikely the NCAA accepts the appeal and allows them to play right away. It doesn’t hurt to try, though.
