YAHTZEE x 2: Davis twins from Pittsburgh will transfer to Kentucky

 Two twins from Pittsburgh, Demitrious and Chris Davis will transfer to Kentucky. They both confirmed the information via Twitter. Both are wide receivers and both will come to Kentucky as walk-ons. As we learned earlier today, the wide receiver corps heading into this season is very thin right now. Neal Brown even mentioned that Kentucky might have tryouts (h/t John Clay). The Davis twins will likely help fill that void. The two were also considering Louisville and Indiana when they decided to make the move from Pitt.

Demitrious and Chris are originally from Austintown, Ohio. Demitrious was the nation’s #32 athlete and Chris was #33 in the class of 2012. Not too bad.

    We are hurting at WR for an Air Raid offense this year.
    If we can just get through this year, things should start to get better quick.

    Don’t they still have to sit a year?

    It doesn’t mention whether or not they will be eligible to play this fall. I am assuming so. Does anyone know?

    You know the previous coach did a hell of a job when you have to hold tryouts to fill out the receiving corps!

    Stoops is doing a hell of a job given what he has.

    Since the twins plan to walk and, presumably, pay their own way they may not have to sit.

    They were red shirted last year does that make them eligible?

    What does walking on have to do of not sitting out a year, it doesn’t matter transfers have to sit out year.

    I’m pretty sure you only have to sit if you play a down during the regular season. I would think they could be good to play. Not 100% on that though.

    Under transfer rules of the NCAA, I’m pretty sure you have to sit out a year only if you’re on scholarship. If you choose to pay your own way, you can play anywhwere immediately, if I recall correctly.

    Surely somebody in the know, like how about UK???, can tell us if these twins can play or not? This is like saying “I’ve got a car for sale,” and not telling what kind of car it is. Kinda basic fetching info. But kudos for the speediness in breaking the story, to be fair.

    Were they walk-ons at their previous school?

    They must sit out a year. Fact.

    As soon as one signs the letter of intent, they must sit out a year if they transfer. Only exceptions are transfers to a lesser division (Div II), transfer to a school for a graduate program that current program doesn’t have if they will have eligibility after getting their bachelors degree (Russell Wilson going to Wisconsin), or special circumstances approved by NCAA for medical or family hardships.

    19, per a pitt website, they had the following scholarships out of high school:

    “Chris Davis (5-9, 185 pounds) chose the Panthers over offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Boise State, Cincinnati, Purdue, Oregon State, Iowa, UCLA and West Virginia.

    Demitrious Davis (5-10, 183) had many of the same offers as his brother and also had an offer from Oregon.”

    Not too shabby….FOR WALK-ONS! My guess is that these guys felt like they could come right in and contribute, so why wouldn’t you come play for The Cats??

    If Joker Phillips was in still in charge of recruiting at UK, we’d have some really creepy PS stuff, with the caption “If you’d like to come play with my twins, join me in Gainesville, Florida.”

    Per the NCAA:The year-in-residence is required to help student-athletes adjust to their new school and ensure that their transfer was motivated by academics as well as athletics. Student-athletes who participate in most NCAA sports are eligible for a one-time transfer exception, which allows them to compete immediately after transfer once in their college experience if they meet all other transfer requirements (such as being academically eligible).

    However, student-athletes in sports that are historically academically underperforming — including basketball, football, baseball and men’s ice hockey — are not eligible for the exception. Though student-athletes in these sports can’t compete in their first year at their new school, they can receive an athletics scholarship and practice with the team. A waiver process is available to all student-athletes, and each waiver request is reviewed individually. From April 2011 to April 2012, the NCAA approved 91 transfer waivers and denied 71.
