A three-star running back out of Cleveland, Ohio will graduate high school early and enroll at Kentucky in January in order to participate in spring football, according to 247Sports.
Torrance Davis, ranked as the 11th best overall player out of Ohio in the class of 2020 and the 31st best running back in the country, committed to play for the Wildcats back in June.
Davis held nearly 20 offers from schools such as Penn State, Tennessee, and Cincinnatti, but was persuaded by the elite recuriting powers of Vince Marrow.
“I’m looking forward to getting to college and playing spring football,” Davis told 247Sports. “I have been dreaming of this since I was five-years-old and I’m 100% ready to get my college career started. I know it will be an adjustment but the coaches are telling me I have a good shot at playing next season as a freshman.”
Entering college a semester early is a big deal for high school seniors and allows them extra time to learn under the coaching staff and build their bodies in order to compete against SEC competition. Davis has already proclaimed that he wants to be the next Benny Snell.
