Davis Talks Second Half Of Journey
When Noor Davis set out on his tour of schools, he had high expectations. Still, he says all of the schools he visited exceeded those expectations. Last time we checked in the Davis, he had just left Ohio State. Now he takes some time to fill us in on the rest of his journey. First stop: Pittsburgh: "Pitt was great. It's a great campus and they split some of their facilities with the Steelers so everything is so nice. the coaches spent a lot of time with me and my father and we really enjoyed it. Head coach Todd Graham even took us on a long tour so that meant a lot. Academics are also great at Pitt. I love the city of Pittsburgh too." After Pitt, Davis traveled to Boston College for his next trip. "Boston College was really nice. The coaches took a big chunk of their time to spend with us and I loved the city. We got to see some of the historical sites in the city and it was great." Davis didn't have to go far for his next destination. Harvard was the next stop. "The academics at Harvard speak for themselves. This is one of the best schools in the country, if not the world. I love the history. We actually took a picture with a picture on the wall that had the first Black player at Harvard in 1946. My dad and I were really impressed by that. In the top right corner of the picture was Robert F. Kennedy and it was so cool to see that he played football there because I didn't know that. There's just so much history and the academics are very prestigious. I could definitely see myself there. The campus is so nice with Harvard Yard." Finally, Davis' trip brought him to Virginia. "I actually lived in D.C. for 10 years but I had never been to Virginia. It's really nice. Coach London talked to us for about an hour and we really liked what we saw. The academics are excellent and the history is impressive. I mean, Thomas Jefferson founded the school. It's a great place."
