Big offer for Davis

Three-star Darrell Davis is someone who saw his stock go up during the month of July.

Detroit (Mich) Frederick Douglass standout Darrell Davis had a strong July period with the Michigan Hurricanes. The 6-foot-4 scoring guard put up prodigious numbers, and that attracted a lot of college attention.

"I think I played pretty good," said Davis. "It was tough with me switching teams and everything, but we bonded together as a team and everything, and I think I did a good job during July."

Recruiting wise numerous schools have been in contact with Davis, and his school list keeps on growing.

"I have been talking with Michigan State, Michigan, St. Joe's, Dayton, Rhode Island, South Florida, Florida International, Central Florida, Richmond, just a lot of schools," said Davis.

The most recent offer for Davis was one from Michigan State. For the three-star prospect it was huge to get an offer from the Spartans.

"Getting an offer from Michigan State was big," said Davis. "I didn't know I was going to get that offer until I went up there and talked with Coach (Tom) Izzo and he offered me a scholarship. It is basically hard work paying off, and now I know I have to keep working harder with schools like Michigan State offering me."

Also the Dayton Flyers have been in contact with Davis quite a bit. They offered him a scholarship early in July, and continue to build a strong relationship.

"They have offered me and they have talked to me for a while," said Davis of Dayton. "I have been calling them and they have been calling me, so we have a real strong relationship."

The next step for Davis is to take a couple of visits, and he says Michigan State as well as Dayton will receive trips for sure and then possibly some other schools.

When it comes to making a choice on one school, Davis says a few factors will really stick out to him.

"The first thing I look for is a school that is going to help me succeed not only in basketball but off the court as well," said Davis. "Also I want a school where I can trust and my whole family can talk to and feel comfortable with."

At the moment Davis says he has no specific timeframe for making a commitment.
