Davis begins to emerge

Three-star power forward Shawntrez Davis is beginning to emerge from the state of Georgia.

One player who is really beginning to emerge in the 2015 class is Shawntrez Davis. The East Point (Ga.) Tri-Cities power forward has always been a long and athletic prospect, and now he is beginning to develop into a producer as well.

At 6-foot-7 and 190 pounds, Davis is someone who has always had a lot of potential, and through hard work that potential is now turning into production.

"I think I played well this spring," said Davis. "I worked out a lot and went to camps and just kept getting better. I like to be in the gym, the gym is like my second home so I stayed in there a lot and just got better."

One of the places where Davis showed off his significant potential was at the Nike Elite 100. At the camp Davis had some very good moments, and proved to be one of the better power forwards.

"The first day we arrived there I couldn't believe I was going against the so called best players in the country," said Davis. "Then when I got used to it and I started to play well. I just did what I had to do, made shots, finishing, going to the cup, and I was one of the best power forwards at the camp."

When it comes to recruiting schools like Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Tennessee, Texas, and Georgia State have all been calling on Davis.

Davis doesn't live far from the Georgia Tech campus and has had a chance to visit with Coach Brian Gregory and his staff.

"It is in my hometown, it is like right down the street," said Davis. "Georgia Tech is like home to me. I like their style of play. They like to run and they get into transition."

While Davis hasn't had a chance to visit Georgia, however he is impressed with the school.

"They had one of the top players in Kentavious Caldwell-Pope go No. 8 in the draft, so that is a good thing," said Davis. "They have a good coaching staff, and to see UGA with a top 10 player from the state of Georgia it is exciting."

According to Davis he has been working hard all June long, and he thinks in July his play will leave an impression.

"People are going to see a different me," said Davis. "I have been in the gym, and my coaches are going to push me to be the best that I can be. I am going to show the college coaches how much better I am, how I will do everything like make shots, get to the cup, and grab every rebound."

Davis is currently listed as a three-star prospect and the No. 20 power forward in the class.
