Valor Christian running back Joshia Davis committed to play at the University of Colorado during a live broadcast on 9News on Tuesday afternoon.

"I'm just excited to be a Buff," Davis said on 9News. "There's going to be a lot to look forward to, and I just can't wait to get up there."

"It's cool to stay home, close to home," Davis added. "Family was a big part of the decision. I just felt like (CU) was the right fit, and it just happened to be my hometown."

Davis also announced his decision on Twitter, saying "as a kid, I grew up dreaming to play D1 football, and attend college on a full ride scholarship."

Davis, a junior, rushed for 771 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. A three-year varsity player, he has accounted for 33 scores so far in his career.
