Big time shooter Brad Davison talks about his recent visit tour

NORTH AUGUSTA, SC - Sharp shooting guard Brad Davison took a recent visit tour, and it seems like a decision isn't too far away.

Coaches are always looking for big time shooting, and one of the best shooters in the class of 2017 is Brad Davison. Ever since the spring Davison has been blowing up on the high-major radar, and after a recent visit tour Davison could be moving toward a decision.

For Davison the spring went great with Howard Pulley, and now Peach Jam has started off just as good.

“It has been an amazing experience and a lot of fun,” said Davison. “The team has played really well, and it has been a great start to Peach Jam so we have to keep it going.”

When it comes to his recruitment things have been extremely busy recently, and Davison just returned from an extensive visit tour.

“I went on a visit tour,” noted Davison. “I took an official visit to Stanford, then I went to Northern Iowa. From there I went to Butler, Dayton, Michigan, Northwestern, and Wisconsin.”

About the official visit to Stanford, Davison said, “That was a really cool experience to go out there with my family. To see the coaches and meet them face to face and talk to the players was really cool.”

Two schools that seem to be gaining a lot of favor with Davison are Michigan and Wisconsin.

When it comes to the Badgers, Davison said, “I think the thing I liked the most is the familiarity. I have known them since eighth or ninth grade, especially Coach (Greg) Gard. They have been stressing how they want me to be the quarterback of their team.”

Also Wisconsin has the advantage of their two commitments doing some of their own recruiting.

“I know Nathan (Reuvers) and Kobe (King) really well,” noted Davison. “They text or snapchat me every day trying to get me to go there.”

About the Michigan visit he said, “That was a really cool experience to meet face to face with John Beilein. He is one of the best coaches out there so it was great. He thinks I would fit in great with his offense, and that I would be a good fit for their program.”

He continued about the Wolverines, “I personally like how they use two guards at the top who can come off of ball screens or attack, so I feel I would fit in well there.”

Also Northwestern has been involved with Davison for a little while, and he liked what he saw in Evanston.

“It was really cool to talk with Coach (Chris) Collins,” said Davison. “You can tell how much passion he has to get Northwestern to the NCAA Tournament, and his entire coach staff is the same way.”

While he didn’t visit Duke, the Blue Devils seem to be poking around, and recently they indicated interest in him.

“They just said they really like how I play and they were really looking forward to seeing me at Peach Jam,” said Davison of Duke.

For the coaches recruiting Davison a long wait for a decision doesn’t appear likely.

“I play football so I am hoping to get my decision out of the way soon so I can focus on the season,” said Davison. “I think I could make a decision by the end of July.”
