Early or Late?
Byron Davis, a shooting guard with the Michigan Hurricanes and Rogers Academy recently took the standardized test. However, to date, he has not taken an official visit and doesn't have any planned.
"He has people that want him to visit but he hasn't necessarily committed to one," Rogers coach Steve Hall said. "It's contingent on whether he signs early or not."
Hall says that Davis' recruitment can actually be broken down into a few parts. Heading into the summer, Wisconsin, Purdue, Rutgers and Marquette were chasing him. Those schools have since added players and it doesn't look like he has them as options any longer. But, because those programs were interested, it caused some of the mid-majors to back off. Hall says that Kent State and Butler are still recruiting him.
Davis posted a 3.5. GPA for the first semester so he's got that going for him.
Davis has to decide exactly how he feels about the schools that are still on him. That decision will determine whether he signs early or late. "He has to determine whether he feels comfortable with the options he has now," Hall said. "He doesn't frown on those options he has now it's just is he ready to go ahead and commit? It would probably also has something to do with the opportunity to out and look at some of the campuses."
Hall thinks Davis could be on the verge of a breakout season. "Last year he played on a team alongside two senior Division I guards. During the summer he played along Olu [Famutimi] and Brandon Jenkins. I think he has some ball skills that some people might be a little surprised to see. That's not to say that anyone is trying to find something bigger because bigger isn't always better."
