BYU finalized the commitment of an intriguing athlete from the south Salt Lake area today when Brach Davis signed to play for the Cougars during the early signing period for the 2018 recruiting class.
Davis is a 6-foot-1 athlete from Olympus High in Holladay. He missed the entire 2016 season after tearing knee ligaments during a long jump in his sophomore track season, but recovered to show promise for the Titans in 2017.
Davis rushed for 113 yards on 22 carries (5.14 yards per carry) and caught three passes. He recorded nine tackles on defense. He’s listed as a two-star prospect by 247Sports.
A report from the Deseret News says BYU had been recruiting him to play cornerback and that he committed when offered because "They showed a lot of belief in me from the beginning," he said. "Other schools haven't taken that leap of faith with me or seen that potential in me."
He does not have other offers listed by recruiting services.
His athletic.net track profile says his 100-meter dash personal record is a blazing 10.96.
