Schools continue to track Davis

Numerous high level programs are contacting Eric Davis, and he is hoping to make a pair of visits this fall.

For Saginaw (Mich) Arthur Hill standout Eric Davis, the summer was a good one. Running with The Family, Davis put up huge scoring numbers and impressed along the way. Now the 6-foot-3 combo guard is working to refine his game.

"I think I had a pretty good summer," said Davis. "I could have done a little bit better, but I finished off strong and I am looking forward to next summer and dominating."

He continued, "I worked on just being a leader at all times, from the first through fourth quarter. Also I wanted to just get better with my all-around game."

Recruiting wise several schools have made sure to remain in close contact with Davis since the end of July.

"I've been hearing a lot from Oregon with Dana Altman and Coach Kevin McKenna, Illinois with John Groce, Jamall Walker, and Coach Dustin Ford, NC State, Michigan State, Minnesota, and that is really all that has contacted me," explained Davis.

Michigan State has long made him a priority, and he says it is big to hear from Tom Izzo and the Spartans.

"It is just a great opportunity," said Davis of Michigan State. "I know a lot of kids would love the opportunity to hear from Michigan State. I am just trying to stay humble about it. I am excited just to hear from them."

Another Big Ten school, Illinois has also made sure to remain in close contact, and Davis is very complimentary of the Illini.

"They've been telling me that they need a guard like me because their scoring point guards will be leaving," Davis noted of Illinois. "They think I could come in and fit in their system with high ball screens, which I like. Also they play with a good up and down pace, and would put the ball in my hands. Some schools want to recruit me as a two, but I want to go to school as a one. Illinois is just a great program and I love talking to those guys."

When it comes to Minnesota, the interest is at the beginning stages, but contact remains steady.

"I haven't talked to Coach (Richard) Pitino, but I have been talking with (Dan) McHale and he has been telling me he likes how I play and they want me to get up and visit," said Davis.

This fall Davis plans on making unofficial visits to both Oregon and Illinois, however he isn't sure of exactly when those will be.

Currently Davis is rated as the No. 22 player in the class of 2015.
