Davis has major interest

One of the Chicago area players who has really emerged this spring is Kyle Davis.

The city of Chicago is absolutely loaded in the 2013 class. One of the players who has emerged this spring is Kyle Davis. The combo guard from Hyde Park High School is making waves with his toughness and ability to score.

At 6-foot-1 and 165 pounds, Davis might not have the look of a typical shooting guard, but that is the position he plays the most right now. Still he has some ability to play the point guard and he is putting that on display this spring for the Mac Irvin Fire.

"My team is doing alright," said Davis. "We have been playing kind of as a family. We are playing well as a team."

Last year Davis wasn't a well known prospect, but now he is beginning to get a lot more attention. Davis feels he has come a long way in the past 12 months.

"I have gotten way better," Davis explained. "Defensively and offensively I have improved. I have really been working on my jump shot and my ability to go right."

On the recruiting trail two schools are showing Davis the most attention, but several others are also beginning to get into the mix.

"I have been hearing the most from Xavier and Illinois," said Davis. "Also I am hearing from UIC, Memphis, and Florida some."

When it comes to selecting a school, Davis is looking for a tight knit program with a history of producing guards.

"I am looking for a school that is known for good guard play, and a school that plays as a family and plays good team basketball," Davis explained.

In order for his recruitment and game to go to the highest level, Davis knows that he needs to make one adjustment to his game.

"Everybody says that I will have to be a point guard, so I am always working on my point guard skills," said Davis.

Davis is currently listed as a three-star prospect.
