Former IU basketball forward De’Ron Davis signs deal to play in Ireland

Former Indiana forward De’Ron Davis will start his professional career overseas.

The Colorado native will play for the Killester Dublin Basketball Club in Ireland according to his agent.

“De’Ron Davis out of Indiana University has signed his rookie deal to play in Ireland,” Strategic Athlete Initiatives, Davis’ agent wrote in a Twitter post.  “Davis will be joining Killester Dublin Basketball Club in the Superleague to be the leading force for their team in pursuit of a Championship!”

Terms of Davis’ deal were not disclosed.

The Super League is the top tier men’s basketball league in Ireland.  Killester is based in Dublin.

Davis played in 110 games (23 starts) at Indiana and scored 590 points and pulled down 287 rebounds.  He averaged 13 minutes per contest over the course of his IU career.

The 6-foot-10 Davis finished his career 10th all-time in field goal percentage making 54.7% of his shots.

Originally recruited to Indiana by former head coach Tom Crean, Davis’ once promising career was derailed by a series of injuries, most notably a torn Achilles tendon during his sophomore season.

Davis was ranked No. 35 nationally in the class of 2016 and No. 1 in the state of Colorado according to Rivals.
