Davis shows out at Elite 100

Just a few days after not making the USA Basketball U16 team, Eric Davis, a combo guard out of Michigan, showed up in St. Louis motivated to play well at the Nike Elite 100.

Year in and year out the Nike Elite 100 gives us a great look at some of the nation's best sophomores and juniors.

Among the top prospects at the event this year was 6-foot-3 guard Eric Davis.

Davis, a standout at Saginaw (Mich.) Arthur Hill, played both on and off the ball at camp. A skilled guard, Davis gets into the paint well, can put up points in a hurry and is a capable passer.

"I think I played real good," Davis said about Elite 100. "I played with a chip on my shoulder because I was disappointed I didn't make the USA team. I felt like I had something to prove to everyone. It motivated me to play my hardest. I felt like I was one of the top three players at the camp."

Although he was disappointed he didn't make the USA Basketball U16 team, Davis said he used it to fuel his fire heading into the Elite 100.

"I felt like I should have made the squad," he said. "I played great there. I thought it was a done deal. They didn't call my name and I was disappointed, but I had to let it go and get ready for Elite 100."

On the recruiting front, Davis said he's getting strong interest from Kansas, Missouri, Syracuse, Florida State, Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Providence, Oregon, Duke, Ohio State, North Carolina and North Carolina State.

"It's going great," he said of his recruitment. "I'm hearing from numerous schools."

"It's still early," he said. "I like all the schools. I'm just waiting to see which schools are going to recruit me. I'm going to trim it down next year as my season goes on and I'll make my decision before senior season."

Davis said he's planning to visit Illinois prior to Peach Jam.
