Edison Star Headed East

Fresno (Calif.) Edison QB Jerry Davis was arguably the top quarterback in Central California. Despite his outlandish numbers, 2,154 passing yards with 29 touchdowns against only eight interceptions, he did not get his first official offer until this week after tripping to MAC school Buffalo.

Jerry Davis (6-2, 200) can finally close the book on his recruitment. The much heralded prospect once held a verbal offer from Arizona State as a junior. However, the 2007 All-CMAC Quarterback's lack of offers was one of major mysteries heading into national signing day.

The 101st rated quarterback in the nation according to Scout.com outplayed Clovis (Calif.) West and future Cal Bear QB Beau Sweeney twice in 2007. Nonetheless, Davis did not get his first offer until taking his official visit to Buffalo this past weekend.

"Jerry committed to Buffalo," said Edison Assistant Coach Tony Perry. "He tripped there last weekend and got offered."

1550/96.1 Sporting News Radio Personality Marcus Grant also spoke to Davis on Tuesday and confirmed the two-star prospect is headed to play for Coach Turner Gill.

Davis is the third quarterback from the Central Section to earn a FBS offer. He joins Sweeney, and Fresno State bound Ebahn Feathers from Fresno Washington Union.
