Arizona State lost one running back pledge but ended up picking up another not too long afterward. Victoria (British Columbia, Canada) running back Terrell Davis became new head coach Todd Graham's first commitment at the school when he verbally committed over the weekend.

“I was already planning to visit ASU on (January 13th) and if they offered me on the visit I would have committed then too," Davis told "It’s a great school and I knew I would commit to them as soon as they offered. I watched some stuff on the Internet about them and I could tell that they are a good program.”

The 6-foot, 215-pound back was previously committed to Washington State but opted instead for warmer climates and a more conducive offensive system for his talents. Davis is obviously aware that it's going to be quite a jump to Pac-12 football but one he's ready to make.

“Obviously high school football in Canada is very different than the U.S.,” he said. “You don’t have the big stadiums and big crowds, but just a few parents who come out and watch the games. It’s obviously a much higher level of competition there, but I’m looking forward to the challenge playing at the college level.”

Davis rushed for 1,355 yards and scored 20 touchdowns during his senior season.
