Olympus rising senior Brach Davis is the definition of an under-the-radar prospect.
He didn't get to play at all for the Titans his junior season after tearing his ACL and LCL during track season early in 2016, but thanks in large part to his speed, the BYU coaching staff extended him his first scholarship offer in early May of this year.
On Thursday, he announced his commitment to the Cougars as part of their 2018 recruiting class after going to a camp in Provo.

Davis recognizes that he could wait out the recruiting process longer and give himself a chance to be noticed by more schools with a productive senior campaign, but the offer from BYU meant a lot to him.
"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."
Standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 170 pounds, Davis said Cougar coaches have recruited him to play cornerback. It's an unfamiliar position for him, but he's been working at it since he was offered, and he said he learned a lot during this week's camp from BYU cornerbacks coach Jernaro Gilford.
Davis becomes the 11th prospect to commit to the Cougars overall this month, and he is the 15th to pledge as part of the 2018 recruiting class.
