The season has started off strong for class of 2018 wing Karrington Davis. The St. Louis native has a new role on his high school team this year, and to this point he has answered the bell and high-major schools are taking a long look at his game.
“Things are going well for us so far,” said Davis. “We won our first game by about 30, and then the next two we’ve won by a lot as well. Our chemistry is getting better as a team, and we are playing well.”
“It is different, but I think I can handle it,” said Davis of his new role. “My teammates are doing a good job of moving the ball and working within the offense, and that is allowing me to be successful.”
On the recruiting trail Davis has offers from Kansas State, Saint Louis, Illinois State, and Middle Tennessee State. Also interest is coming in from Xavier and Butler.
About the offer from Kansas State, Davis said, “It was good to get that offer. They want me to work on my ball handling some, but they think I can be a very good player.”
He continued about Kansas State, “One of my guys from St Louis, Xavier Sneed is going there and he likes it a lot, so I know it is a good program.”
Recently Travis Ford and Saint Louis have really picked things up on the recruiting trail with local prospects, and that is something that Davis has noticed.
“I have a really good relationship with the staff at SLU,” said Davis. “Also it helps that Carte'Are Gordon and Jordan Goodwin are going there because I have played with those guys since junior high and I know them really well.”
For now Davis is in no hurry to make a decision, but he does know what he is looking for in a school.
“The biggest thing I look for is the relationship with the coach,” said Davis. “I want the relationship to be good and for the coaches to be honest.”
