Dee, the MVP of Bloomington (Ind.) South's state tournament run, felt the time was right. "When I talked to my family and the coaches, I thought it was the right time. I've got that relationship, I've visited there and in talking to my family I thought it was the right time."
Xavier coach Chris Mack, who took over for Sean Miller, only strengthened the Musketeers position when he got the job because he'd seen Davis and the guard felt he had a pulse on his game. "I think they got stronger after he got the job. I liked Xavier a lot before they started recruiting me and I love the pace they play at.
"He told me that I could make the decisions on the court and be an extension of the coach. That was good to hear because I felt the same way."
Davis averaged 12.5 points per game last season.
