Ball State recruit Davis an Indiana All-Star

Randy Davis joins 13 other players from around the state to be selected to the Indiana All Star team. Davis, a 5-11 guard out of Plymouth, will suit it up in June in the annual contest against the blue grass state. The Insider caught up with Randy and learned he was excited when he received the news on Saturday.

"I am ecstatic, every kid growing up in Indiana dreams about being an Indiana All-Star."

Randy Davis went on to say that he is looking forward to getting to Ball State this summer and to start working out with his new teammates and playing for Coach Taylor.

"Coach Taylor reminds me so much of my last high school coach [the retired Jack Edison], they are both soft spoken but still gets your attention and respect." Davis said.

He also said he was looking forward to playing with fellow Ball State signee Jarrod Jones.

"Jarrod and I played on the same AAU team the last couple of years," Davis said. "He is a great talent and it will be fun playing four more years with him."

Randy went on to say that he will be playing the point for Ball State.

"In high school, I pretty much played every where," Davis said. "I would bring the ball down the floor, shoot the ball from the perimeter and would even post up when needed. Coach Taylor has told me that I will be a point guard in college. I played the point for my AAU teams so it will not be much of an adjustment."

Davis had a stellar high school career including winning a state championship as a junior. He averaged almost 23 pts a game this year and will be a part of on outstanding recruiting class that is getting high marks from numerous recruiting publications.

Davis will join athletic 6-9 F/C Jones who hails from Michigan City, IN, who comes in with a huge upside as well as 3 recruits from the fall: 6-8 JC transfer Eric Wormely who averaged a double double in Junior College play (11 pts and 12.5 boards), Maurice Hubbard, a 6-6 PF out of Virginia (and son of long time NBA player Phil Hubbard) and an outstanding talent who looks to contribute right away for the Cardinals in the fall, and 6-4 SG Pierre Sneed who's team finished runner up in the Illinois State Championship game.

Coach Taylor and his staff have 3 scholarships left to give for the remainder of the spring signing period which will end May 21st. Look for the Cardinals to sign one maybe two more players in the next couple of weeks and bank the last scholarship for next year. The Cardinals roster does not have depth in the junior class so look for Coach Taylor to add at least one more JC player in the next couple of weeks.
