2011's Davis Moves One State Over

Rising junior point guard Dee Davis, a member of the Class of 2011, is headed to play for the school that knows him best.

Dee Davis, a 5-foot-10 sophomore point guard, committed to play for the Xavier Musketeers Monday night. The 2011 floor general also fielded offers from Purdue and Ohio.

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.
