Cary duo signs with Tusculum College

A pair of Cary Imp teammates will continue their football careers together at the next level.

Cary High School defensive back Wan'ye Davis and linebacker Trevor Ellis each signed National Letters of Intent on Wednesday afternoon to play football at Tusculum College in Greenville, Tennessee.

"I definitely wanted to go to a smaller school, just for educational purposes," Davis said. "I wanted to go to a quality school, and I wanted to go to a football team that was close where the coaches truly care. That’s what I found at Tusculum and that’s what made them the front-runner."

Davis finished his senior campaign with 80 tackles, one sack, one interception and two forced fumbles. He also plays lacrosse at Cary. He did not start playing organized football until his freshman year of high school.

Ellis recorded 58 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and four sacks during his senior season.

"It's been a great year at Cary, the coaches really helped me out, along with my teammates and family," Ellis said. "This just topped it all off."

Davis said going to college and playing on the same defense as one of his former Cary teammates will make the transition from high school to college easier.

"When we went on our visit on Saturday, I told him that morning that whether he committed would decide whether I committed," Davis said. "During the visit he texted me and said, 'This is the school for me.' I was thinking the same thing and I was hoping he was too."

The Cary Imps went 4-7 in 2013, with a 2-5 record in the 4-A Southwest Wake Athletic Conference.

The Tusculum College Pioneers also went 4-7 in 2013 and 2-5 in their conference. The team plays in the South Atlantic Conference against North Carolina schools including Wingate University, Catawba College and Lenoir-Rhyne University.
