Davis reopens recruitment

2014 power forward Jackson Davis is back on the market. Davis reopened his recruitment on Saturday.

Jackson Davis is reopening his college recruitment.

The talented power forward out of Lexington (Ky.) Lafayette committed to Rice in late October. Davis and his family spoke to Rice head coach Ben Braun on Saturday to relay the news.

"We are not decommitting from Rice," Davis' mother Ginger told Scout.com. "We are reopening Jackson's recruitment. If Rice is the best place for Jackson, that's where we'll end up. If Rice ends up not being the best place for Jackson and some place is, then we'd like to be able to explore those options."

"We're looking to see what our other options are and narrow those down and take a few more visits," she added. "Jackson has been on a couple official visits, so we have a few more to take."

Davis, who holds a 3.9 GPA, took official visits to Rice and Columbia.

"We aren't saying no to Rice, we just want to explore his options," Davis said.

What are Davis and his family looking for in a school?

"I'm looking for a school with coach that is going to be relatable to my son and I'm looking for a place that he can play, but also academically we want him to excel as well," Davis said.

Davis has had a tremendous season on the court. The 6-foot-8, 215-pound power forward has improved his offensive skill, plays with energy on both ends of the floor and is a very good rebounder.

Davis is averaging 25 points, 14 rebounds and two blocks a game during his senior season.
