Bloomington – Jeremiah Davis has an understanding mom and dad to thank for his appearance in this weekend's Indiana Elite camp.
The highly-coveted point guard from Muncie (Ind.) Central H.S. wanted to attend this weekend's event, but an important family function stood in the way of his visit – his parents' wedding anniversary.
"I wasn't sure if I could go," Davis said Sunday. "I really wanted to go, so my dad took me down and my parents are off celebrating their anniversary today."
Davis says it was a trip worth taking. Besides providing the Class of 2011 standout with another opportunity to be on the Bloomington campus, he said he was able to get some good advice from IU Coach Tom Crean during the camp, things he'll be able work on in the coming weeks and months as he prepares for his junior season at Muncie Central.
"Coach Crean was really good about coaching all of us, and I liked that part about it," Davis said. "Usually when you go to camp you just go up and down (the floor), but he worked with us on things we need to work on. I'll probably work on them (Monday) when I'm back in the gym."
While Davis was able to get some coaching from Crean and his staff, Crean was able to get in front of Davis once again and relay just how badly he wants him as part of the Hoosiers' 2011 class. Indiana offered Davis a scholarship last spring shortly after Crean took the IU job, and its interest in him has only intensified in recent months following a very productive AAU season with Team Indiana Elite.
"They're pretty anxious (for a decision)," Davis said. "I think they want me pretty bad, and that's a good thing."
Other programs want Davis as well, and he said he's still weighing his options. At this point he doesn't have a handful of favorites that he's considering that he wants to make public, but he did say Indiana is "one of the tops on the list."
"You could say I'm getting closer (to a decision)," said Davis, who added that he plans to return to Bloomington for either a football game this fall or for Hoosier Hysteria. "But I'm still evaluating everything – education, the coach and style of play."
