Washington SG Davis making strides

Daejon Davis has one offer and a lot of interest. Here's the latest on the 2017 Seattle shooting guard's recruitment.

One of the most under-recruited prospects in the 2017 class comes from Seattle Lakeside in shooting guard Daejon Davis.

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound rising junior can flat out score but also has an outstanding feel for the game and is a very good passer.

“I think my game is coming along nicely,” Davis said. “I’m working on stuff and using it in games. I’ve been more efficient with my shooting.”

So far, Scout’s 44th ranked 2017 prospect and 8th rated shooting guard has just one scholarship offer, to go along with a lot of interest.

Washington is my only offer,” Davis said. “I’m hearing from Arizona, Oregon State, Gonzaga, California, Kansas, Seattle and Washington State.”

Landing that first offer from Washington was a good feeling for Davis, who already knows plenty about that program.

“They come to a lot of games,” he said. “They’re really supportive and I love that coaching staff; coach (Lorenzo) Romar and coach Chill (Raphael Chillious).

“I know they had a lot of NBA players and pros. Brandon Roy, Tre Simmons played overseas, Will Conroy is a good friend, Tony Wroten and Terrence Ross.”

Davis said he will wait “however long until I feel I know the right place” but does have an idea of what will be important to him in a school.

“I’m looking for academics, coaching staff, environment, playing style and the players there and players coming in,” Davis said.
