Breaking down Top 50 2017 Washington commit Daejon Davis

Washington landed a big commitment from Daejon Davis on Monday. Scout breaks down the 45th ranked prospect in the 2017 class.

Washington's top five 2017 recruiting class was taken to the next level on Monday.

Daejon Davis, Scout's 45th ranked prospect in the class, committed to the Huskies, strengthening one of the best recruiting classes in the country.

A 6-foot-3, 175-pound shooting guard from Seattle Garfield, chose Washington after making an early commitment to the Huskies before ultimately decommitting. Davis' other three finalists were OregonGonzaga and Stanford.

What kind of player is Washington getting in Davis?


Davis is a long and extremely versatile shooting guard. He has a terrific feel for the game for the position and despite his scoring ability, he's very unselfish and passes really well.

You don't see a whole lot of young naturally gifted scorers who can pass like Davis can. He can rack up points with his pull-up jumper or use his athleticism to attack the basket and finish above the rim.

Davis has a smooth stroke and can knock down shots from three and midrange. He has a smooth hesitation dribble he'll use to get his defenders off balance before beginning his drive. Davis is an unselfish player who typically doesn't force the issue on offense.

He is a committed defender who ultimately should be able to guard multiple positions, especially if he grows. He has very good instincts on both ends of the court.

Davis has several of the qualities you're looking for out of a young shooting guard and is a no-brainer high major prospect and a kid that is the definition of a winning player.

For Washington to add Davis to a class that already includes talented prospects such as Michael Porter and Jaylen Nowell only cements what kind of team the Huskies could have moving forward.
