Recruitment Began Early For Davis

Jeremiah Davis became a hot name early on in his high school career. As just a sophomore he already holds five scholarship offers.

For Jeremiah Davis the recruiting process came earlier than most.

He had just ended his freshman campaign and began playing on the AAU circuit with Mark Adams' Indiana Elite – Team Indiana. After just a few events in front of college coaches, scholarship offers began rolling in.

Kentucky threw an offer his way. The local school Ball State did the same, as did Indiana and Purdue.

"It was exciting," Davis, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound guard, recalls. "It was really exciting and I liked it a lot and I just hope it keeps going on. I love it."

Since that summer, Davis picked up a scholarship from Tennessee, and interest from a variety of schools including Cincinnati, Ohio State, Xavier, UNLV, Kansas, Illinois, Arizona and Florida.

Already, Davis has been on a handful of campuses. Indiana, Kentucky, Ball State and Purdue have all had the 2011 prospect on their campus. Next up are visits to Cincinnati and Ohio State, according to Davis.

"It's kind of early, but I like Kentucky and Indiana and I like Arizona and Florida too," Davis said. "I just like their coaches. Coach and education is the main reasons you go to a school."

"I haven't been talking to a lot of coaches since the season started," he said. "I've been starting back up since the season ended."

On the season, Davis averaged 15 points, five assists and four rebounds per game, while leading Muncie (Ind.) Central to a 12-11 record. Their season ended in early March with a loss to Anderson in the sectional championship.

Now, Davis is preparing for another travel season with Indiana Elite – Team Indiana, and if everything goes as Davis has planned he'll continue to gain more interest from college coaches and will accumulate more scholarship offers.
