Davis Has Plenty of Options

A great season was put on display last Saturday when Ed Davis and his Benedictine team nearly upset Montverde. Scout.com caught up with Davis to get his thoughts on the game and what's shaking with his recruitment.

Richmond (Va.) Benedictine power forward Ed Davis had a strong performance against Montverde Academy and its truckload of talent last weekend. While playing against a bevy of big, strong interior players, Davis showed well but also learned a few things.

"It showed me where I'm at and where I need to work on in terms of defense," Davis said. Admittedly, the running of numerous sized players at him took its toll as fatigue set in but this is one of the outstanding players in the junior class. He's a good weight training program away from some serious business.

Davis, a face-up four man, will keep packing on the pounds, working on his ball handling and getting his shot more consistent. These days he's super standout from the free throw line in terms of being a threat. At that spot on the floor he can shoot, pass it or drive. Defensively he's great with helpside blocks and rebounds his position well.

Because he's all these things with room to grow, colleges are lining up. Connecticut, Virginia Tech, Clemson and Georgetown watched him play last Saturday.

However, there's one program that has his eye in terms of the intensity by which they are pursuing him.

"I'd have to say UVA," They just come the hardest," Davis said of Virginia.

He holds offers from the Hoyas, Tigers, Huskies, Cavaliers and Hokies. North Carolina is a program he continues to mention though does not hold a scholarship offer.

"I'm going to wait until the fall," Davis told Scout.com.
