Davis ends season with big game

Jackson Davis, a 2014 recruit out of Lexington (Ky.) Lafeyette, had a strong close to his junior season.

Jackson Davis' high school team lost a tough game in the first round of districts this week.

Despite Lexington (Ky.) Lafeyette's season ending loss, Davis, a 6-foot-7 power forward, went out with a bang scoring 29 points and reeling in 16 boards.

Davis was active on the glass, ran the floor extremely well and finished around the rim. He played with energy and pursued every rebound whether it was in his area or not.

"I think I had a pretty good year this year," Davis told Scout.com. "I definitely improved my all around game since last year. I really worked hard to get out where I'm at."

"First of all I think my confidence is one of the biggest things," he said about his improvement. "I've also improved my post game and my mid-range game and getting to the basket a little bit more."

On Tuesday against Lexington (Ky.) Dunbar, Davis raced up and down the floor. He said that's one of his strengths.

"I like getting up and down the court," he said. "That's probably one of the best things I do."

On the recruiting front, Davis has heard from a number of schools recently.

"It's going pretty good," he said of his recruitment. "I've talked to a couple of coaches here lately. I've talked to Kansas State a lot and VCU, UCLA, Miami, Florida State and Florida."

"I've heard a little bit from Harvard, Oklahoma State, DePaul, Michigan State and Notre Dame."

Kansas State stopped by to see Davis recently.

"They came twice," Davis said. "They came two weeks ago. They came to the Henry Clay game."

Davis, a 2014 recruit, is planning to run with the Kentucky Travelers during AAU season.
