CB Da’Quan Davis No Longer With Penn State

Penn State cornerback Da’Quan Davis is no longer with the program. Nittany Lions head coach James Franklin informed Audrey Snyder of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette of the news.

“Da’Quan is no longer with the team,” Franklin said. “I keep my comments pretty limited on those things, but we wish him the best, but yeah, he’s no longer with the program. That’s also why we don’t necessarily release things if we don’t have to because I want him to be able to focus on graduating and finishing up his academics.”

Davis’s role had decreased significantly since 2012, when he played in every game, but his overall numbers in his three seasons with the team were poor. Over that stretch, the rising senior only registered 13 tackles. Given the great amount of depth that Penn State has in its secondary, this move seemed near inevitable.

Penn State went 7-6 (2-6 Big Ten) in its first season under Franklin and ranked second in the nation in total defense en route to defeating Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl.

The team will open the season against the in-state rival Temple Owls at Lincoln Financial Field on September 5.
