Torrance Davis will not sign with Kentucky on National Signing Day

Davis will wait to sign his NLI.

The late signing period for college football begins Wednesday, and with it comes the chance for Kentucky to wrap up a historic recruiting class.

However, it sounds like Torrance Davis will not be part of the players signing their national letters of intent when the period begins, as he announced on Instagram that he won’t sign Wednesday.

There’s been no definitive word as to why Davis is unable to sign, but delays like these are often caused by some type of academic holdup. Perhaps he has a test or a class he needs to pass before being given the go-ahead to sign with a school.

Davis, a three-star running back out of Cleveland (OH), committed to Kentucky on June 7th over Cincinnati, Indiana, Michigan State and Tennessee among others. He is ranked 384th nationally by 247 Sports in addition to being the 13th-overall player in the state of Ohio. Rivals has him listed as the 37th-best running back in the country and the 8th-best player in his state.

Kentucky is loaded at running back with AJ Rose, Kavosiey Smoke and Christopher Rodriguez leading the Cats’ backfield. Davis would be a nice addition to that depth if he ultimately signs with the Wildcats, so hopefully it eventually happens.
