The defensive tackle never felt quite at home at Temple, despite building a good relationship with the coaching staff. "I loved all the coaches at Temple, it was just the location. I thought that I would get over it each time I would go to Temple, but it just didn't happen, so I knew then that I had to keep looking."
As he kept his eyes open he stumbled upon Cincinatti. "Cincinnati came up from my coach, and I looked into it and got a good feeling. Then I flew out there for a visit, and I loved it. Cincinnati is where I want to spend my four years of college."
D'Avanzo plans to make his official visit in December. Stay tuned for more.
