Arizona sticks out for Davis

Plano (Texas) West center Tyler Davis is taking his with through the recruiting process. Read on to see which schools stick out, how it feels to be back after sitting out, and more.

Plano (Texas) West center Tyler Davis had to sit out last season due to transfer rules and thus saw his first real action in a year this past weekend at the Nike EYBL.

"I had my first game back in a while and the pace is fast, which is something I have to get used to after missing a year," Davis said.

"Sitting out was difficult. Anybody here would tell you that sitting out a year is something they never want to do, so it was tough. I have to get back into it, get back into shape, and go win some games."

Despite missing a season, Davis is not taking a selfish approach to the AAU season.

"I am not really looking to show anything, I just want to win," he said. "I want to dominate the paint and play to my full ability."

Just because Davis has not played in a while does not mean that his recruitment has slowed down. In fact, he is quick to point to two schools as sticking out.

"Recruiting is going pretty well," Davis said. "I have high interest from Kansas, who had an in-home visit with me not too long ago. I like Arizona a lot and I am just taking my time. I'm really not paying attention to all of that right now."

Davis pays plenty of attention to what is going on in college basketball and was impressed with Arizona's season.

"I like the way they handle their bigs and the way they played with Kaleb this year," he said. "I like everything about them and they look like a good program. I have always liked them growing up."

As Davis talks with each school recruiting him, he plans to take his time and knows exactly what he wants to focus on.

"I am going to be looking at if they can help me get my skill to where it needs to be," he said. "I want to play at a higher level than college, so my school will be whoever can help me produce the way I want to.

"When I think I am ready to decide, I am going to talk with my mother and the people around me and then make my decision."
