Davidson's Motley to play football for Pittsburgh
The Hilliard Davidson football team could be in for a memorable season considering how many seniors is has that picked up playing time a year ago.
One of the athletes that seems destined to shine this fall is senior cornerback Phillipie Motley, who recently verbally committed to play for Pittsburgh.
Motley, who ran on the Wildcats' 1,600 relay that was fifth and also was fifth in the 100 and 10th in the 200 at the state meet in June, had 10 Division I offers.
Pittsburgh was the only BCS offer he had, with the others coming from Akron, Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Kent State, Marshall, Miami, Ohio and Toledo according to his Scout.com page.
"I loved Pitt when I went to visit the coaching staff," Motley said. "They really showed a lot of interrest in me and there was a lot to offer there from the academics side and also athletic so it just seemed to be the best fit for me. I had a top four I was picking from and that was Pitt, Bowling Green, Toledo and Ohio U."
