Davis looking at options

Four-star center De'Ron Davis continues to go through the recruiting process. Read on to see his thoughts on the latest developments and more.

It’s been a relatively calm couple of months for 6-foot-9, 240-pound Aurora (Colorado) Overland center De'Ron Davis.

The 2016 four-star prospect has been immersed with his junior season and trying to win a state championship.

“I’m focused on winning this season,” Davis said. “I want to improve everyday and help my team win games. I know offers and attention will come with that, but it’s not my focus.

“I want this season to be a great one, and that means winning as many games as possible and competing for a state championship.”

Although he has tried to keep his sights on basketball this season, Davis has picked up two new offers and garnered quite a bit of attention from Arizona.

“I picked up two offers from UCONN and Notre Dame,” Davis said. “Arizona has been heavily involved with my recruitment. I talk to them often and coach Stouadmire is out to see me quite a bit.”

Davis is pleased with the relationship Arizona has built with him.

“Arizona’s coaches are straight forward about everything, they don’t hide anything from you,” Davis said. “They tell me the truth and not what they think I want to hear, and I really respect that.”

The 30th best player in the country has been watching Arizona closely this season and he feels his style of play would fit perfectly with Sean Miller’s system.

“I like how their bigs can play multiple spots,” Davis said. “They have versatile bigs that run the floor and that fits my game perfectly.

“Arizona has a great program, their bigs are always successful in college and they’ve sent some to the NBA too, which is a major accomplishment.

"I want to find the best fit for me when it’s all said and done. Arizona has been great so far and I definitely plan to get out there and get a closer look.”

A decision timetable is something Davis has decided to push back until the summer.

“It’s too early for me to plan a timetable and visit dates,” said Davis. “I want to keep my focus this season, but I will probably cut my list to five or six schools this summer.

“After I cut my list, I will arrange visit dates with each school, but I’m too far away to have a final decision date.”
