Seattle figures to be one of the most prominent producers of 2016 and 17 high school basketball talent and at the forefront is Lakeside sophomore guard Daejon Davis.
As is usually the case with any Seattle-area recruit, the University of Washington has made a solid early impression.
“Washington already offered me and we have a really good relationship,” Davis said. “A bunch of guys from Seattle are going there and they are all good, so it is a place I like a lot.
“It’s also the only place I’ve gone on a visit to. I’m guessing I will start to look at taking other visits, but I don’t know when I will get there.”
The main reason for the local love is Lorenzo Romar.
“Coach Romar is a great guy," Davis said. "He has a good reputation with everyone here and is a guy that everyone can see playing for. They’ll for sure be a school that I’m into.”
Although it would seem Davis would be a logical Husky recruit, he is going to go through the recruiting process.
“Arizona has sent me some stuff and is one of the better teams in the country," Davis said. "I have heard a little bit from them.
"It’s been mostly schools in this area that have been on me the most. I think I will have some nice offers by the time I’m ready to make a decision."
When will that decision come?
“I’m hopefully going to decide where I want to go in about a year or so," Davis said. "Sometime between my junior and senior season is kind of what I’m looking at.”
