Davis racking up offers

Three-star guard Darrell Davis continues to pull in offers and is having an excellent junior season.

Detroit (Mich) Douglass guard Darrell Davis has been putting up big numbers during his junior season. The class of 2014 combo guard continues to improve, and now the scholarship offers are beginning to add up.

According to REACH Legends AAU coach Mike Allie, Davis has had an impressive season and continues to get better.

"Darrell has done a great job of scoring the ball in a variety of ways this season," said Allie. "He's a triple threat with the ability to finish at the rim, pull up for the midrange jumper or knock down the 3 ball. He's does a great job of rebounding the ball as a guard and has excellent vision and understanding of how to play the game."

Allie continued, "His high school team plays a very competitive schedule, so he is being challenged every game. He's a leader and is as competitive as any kid I've coached within our REACH Legends program. He is just as competitive in the classroom as he is on the court carrying a 4.0 GPA."

When it comes to his recruitment, a pair of high-major schools have already offered with several others showing significant attention.

"Schools that have offered him include Iowa State, Iowa, UMass, Oakland, Detroit, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, and Toledo," listed Allie. "Other schools showing interest are Akron, Xavier, DePaul, Stanford, Michigan, Michigan State, Memphis and Arkansas."

One of the schools who has offered received a visit from Davis this weekend.

"This weekend Darrell was up at Iowa State to watch them take on Texas Tech," said Allie. "He enjoyed it up there and gets along well with the current players and coaching staff. They'll be there at the end when Darrell cuts his list down. He will be visiting other schools in the near future but there are no set dates yet. "

While Davis is a long way from making a decision, he does know what he will be looking for in a school.

"Things that Darrell will consider when making his decision include his relationship with the coaching staff, style of play, current players on the roster and academics," said Allie. "There is no timetable for a decision but I think it will come after our summer AAU season."

Davis is a three-star guard, and one of the top players in the state of Michigan.
