Colorado '16 star liking attention from Cards

De'Ron Davis is one of the top 20 prospects nationally in the Class of 2016 and he's now firmly on the University of Louisville's radar. Davis spoke with Cardinal Authority about his interest from U of L and his recruitment.

De'Ron Davis is one of the top prospects nationally in the Class of 2016 and has all kinds of major colleges after him.

The 6-foot-10, 230-pound Davis recently added what he called "serious" interest from the University of Louisville. He said assistant coach Kenny Johnson called him soon after he left Indiana for U of L and has stayed in contact.

Davis said Johnson told him he was a "top priority," and the player said he feels "fortunate" for the interest from the Cards.

"They are one of the top programs in the country, they have good facilities and a great coach," Davis said. "How could you not like them? Coach Johnson said he will check in with me more and let me know more about them."

Davis is ranked as a five-star prospect and the No. 16 player in the '16 class by Scout. His game is a bit different than last summer when he played at 6-9, 247. He said the added height and slimming down almost 20 pounds has been "a huge help to my game and my abilities."

"My motor has gotten better and I just think I move better," he said. "It's helped me a lot."

Davis said Indiana, Colorado and Arizona are coming afetr him the hardest and also listed California, Arkansas, Kansas and Texas.

Davis is from Aurora, Colo., and attends Overland High School.
