Schools Trying to Get Involved

Looks like more schools want a chance at Theo Davis the 6 -9 1/2 big man. Here at Illiniboard.Com Davis tells us who is calling him now.

Theo Davis, a 6-foot-9 1/2 Canadian big man at Cardozo High (N.Y.), is exploring other options after committing to Texas because of concerns that Longhorns freshman Lamarcus Aldridge will remain for more than one year in Austin.

``Theo wants to make an impact right away in college," said Ro Russell, Davis' former coach in Canada. "He loves everything about Texas, though."

Russell said he has fielded an abundance of calls since Davis opted to re-open his recruitment - including UCLA, Florida State, Syracuse, Cincinnati, Arizona, Oklahoma, Illinois and Georgia Tech.

``He's looking for a great opportunity to play right away," Russell added. "Texas is still in the mix, but there's no guarantee that Lamarcus will leave after this year.
