Timeline — Davis should be narrowing his list at any time this summer, with visits to follow. He has taken an official visit to Georgetown and has four official visits remaining.
Indiana Connections — Archie Miller and assistant coach Bruiser Flint’s east coast connections helped Indiana find Davis prior to his spring AAU emergence. The Hoosiers have been watching him going back to his junior season of high school.
Numbers — Davis averaged 20.6 points, 4.4 rebounds. 3.2 assists and 2.1 steals a game during the Nike EYBL AAU season playing for the New York Renaissance. He shot 45.1% from the field overall including 42.5% from three point range. A regular at the foul line, Davis made 81.6% of his attempts.
Davis averaged more than 25 points per game during his junior season for Stepinac according to the Westchester Journal News. Stepinac is a prestigious program that has produced a significant amount of Division One talent — and he is already the school’s all-time leading scorer. Davis also averaged 7.0 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game.
He was also a standout at the NBA Players Association Top 100 camp and participated in Chris Paul’s Elite Guard Camp.
RECRUITING SERVICE ASSESSMENTS
“Davis is a natural scorer. He plays with a high motor and an aggressive offensive mentality.”
— Jerry Meyer, 247Sports
“Look what a guy like Carsen Edwards did the last few years at Purdue and you can see why Davis could be a big-time college player. He’s not as fast or good off the dribble as Edwards is, but Davis is a lethal shooter from deep. There aren’t many other combos in the country with Davis’ aptitude for filling it up.”
— Eric Bossi, Rivals
“I speak to coach (Archie) Miller and (assistant coach Bruiser) Flint on a daily basis. They’re happy for my growth from spring to now and they’re excited to see me this weekend.”
— Jason Munz, Commercial Appeal
“They’re trying to get me down to campus. They love my game as well as the other coaches recruiting me. They just love the way I run the show and play both sides.”
