Davis twins applying for immediate eligibility


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.

    can’t hurt to try, they already sat out a year … i guess we’ll find out if the ncaa hates our football team as much as they hate our basketball program

    We need all the help we can get. We are going to blow this year as it is.

    Now you guys KNOW the NCAA is not going to let them play this year. If there is a way to keep UK held back in any capacity, they will make sure it happens…Free Enes!!!

    the NCAA does not have a vendetta against UK FOOTBALL, they hold themselves back quite well. Hopefully this is a new dawn … blue dawn

    Damn you all are such crotchety a-holes sometimes. The article said they are going to try to use that situation as a way to play this year…you know…a loophole. Nowhere does it say they feel cheated or are “complaining”. Just shut up or go back to your UL site (don’t like to cry “troll”, but he’s gotta be, right?).

    Meanwhile…how big are those dudes? Dang. They got cankles…the good kind.

    “Keep calm the twins might be coming sooner than you think” doesn’t really fit on a t-shirt very well.

    Why not try? They do look short in the pic…

    Are they walk-ons, or on scholly? Can’t remember.

    But yeah, no chance the mafia NCAA will help UK, but then….it is football, so maybe there’s a chance as the mafia folks inside may not give a damn.

    Hope they can play this year. We could use any break we can get. Agree with everybody that if this were basketball there would be no way in hell… But football is an unknown. They don’t look super tall in the pic, but damn they look like they could press CWS.

    What is up with the hate on this dudes on this board? This dudes aren’t very tall, but being short is not that big of a deal in football if you are blazing fast (which they are), can jump really high (which they can), and are extremely strong (again, they are). Randall Cobb is very short. So is Percy Harvin.

    If you have concerns about these twins, just watch their highlight videos. They are ridiculously talented.

    Yeh I don’t get all the complaining, this isn’t baskeball you don’t have to be 6’7 granted they could be a little taller but look at em they’re some big dudes… We need help at WR for sure cant hurt to have an extra one, think ones a cb?

    Too beefy for my taste. But the chains intrigue me.

    Both of these kids were nearly four star prospects coming out of high school [each was a 5.7 on Rivals] and both regularly run in the 4.4 or better range. One is 5’9″ and the other 5’10”. Both are obviously very strong. I know that some of you people are trolls. But those of you who aren’t are really ignorant.

    Here’s betting the NCAA will not let them play,but will let P.J.Hairston suit up at UNC.

    I just bought a giant chain at Home Depot to wear around my neck all day at work. Why lift weights for just a few hours a day when you can wear them all day?

    Drew… I hope Demitrius didn’t have you type up his appeal. #Dimitrius?

    Pretty impressive offer list.
