Davis is one of the best in 2016

Big man De'Ron Davis has made a statement with his play this spring.

Class of 2016 center De'Ron Davis is one of the premier players in his grade. The 6-foot-9 Davis runs the floor, can score down low, rebounds, and plays like a true post player. Running with the Colorado Hawks on the AAU circuit, Davis has had an impressive spring.

With his combination of skill, size, athleticism, and motor, Davis is tough to stop. He is strong enough to score down low, and then also is skilled enough to take advantage of other centers going to the basket or with his decent touch. Overall Davis feels the spring has gone very well for him.

"The spring has been good," said Davis. "Overall I think I need to score a little more, but individually and as a team we have played well."

He continued, "I am just working on dominating the post and working inside out. A lot of teams double or even triple team me in the post so I am working on facing the rim and my counter moves and stuff like that."

According to Davis three schools have been watching him the most so far this spring.

"Arkansas, Indiana, and Colorado are the three main ones right now," noted Davis. "I have some more, but they haven't really come out yet."

In fact Colorado Head Coach Tad Boyle has been watching Davis on the AAU circuit since the eighth grade. With that the Buffaloes have made an obvious impression, though Davis says it is still very early in his recruitment.

"It is pretty cool to hear from there," said Davis of Colorado. "I like CU, but I am not focused on it right now. I am just not paying much attention to recruiting right now."

What Davis does pay attention to though is how each team in the country plays, and he is specific about what type of system he would like to play in.

"Basketball wise I like a team that can run and then also be able to set up an offense and play through their big guy," said Davis.
