Fisher-Davis emerges in first period

Matthew Fisher-Davis emerged as a high major recruit at the Peach State Classic this week. What high major schools have offered the 6-foot-5 North Carolina native?

One of the biggest finds of the first evaluation period was Matthew Fisher-Davis, a 6-foot-5 guard out of Charlotte (N.C.) Christian.

Playing for the Charlotte Nets at the Peach State Classic, Fisher-Davis showed off a terrific looking jump shot all week. Not only is he a good three-point shooter with range, but he also has a quick release and a developed middle game.

"I'm trying to work on scoring from all three levels more and more than just catch and shooting," Fisher-Davis said.

So how did Fisher-Davis emerge from the unknown?

"I broke my [shooting] hand during the middle of the season," Fisher-Davis added. "I still played. I played throughout."

"It was bad," he said of his season. "We had a lot of injuries."

His shooting hand looked just fine this week and a trio of high major schools noticed. Vanderbilt, Mississippi and Georgia offered him after watching with at the Peach State Classic.

He also has scholarship offers from Charlotte, UNC-Wilmington, Citadel, Elon, Ohio, Northern Kentucky, Western Carolina, Appalachian State, Jacksonville, Mercer, Radford, Liberty, Gardner-Webb, Colgate and Tulsa.

Wake Forest is also heavily involved in the Fisher-Davis recruitment. They watched him at Peach State and had him on their campus for their elite camp.

Prior to the Peach State Classic, Fisher-Davis had scholarship offers from Liberty and Mercer.

"It was nothing like this," he said.

"I always felt like I was under recruited and it's starting to show now," Fisher-Davis added.

Fisher-Davis and the Charlotte Nets will play in the Super Showcase during the second evaluation period.
