6'9 junior Theo Davis scheduled to visit Saturday

With 7'0 Clarence Holloway already in the fold from the junior class, it's time we introduced you to another talented frontcourt prospect from the class of 2005. Cardozo head coach Ron Naclerio updates Davis' recruitment.

With 7'0 junior center Clarence Holloway announcing his verbal committment to Louisville last week, it's time we introduced you to another talented frontcourt prospect from the class of 2005.

6'9, 215 Theo Davis of Cardozo High School in Queens, New York is one of the most talented prospects in the junior class nationally. He's ranked #17 overall and is considered the #2 center prospect in the class of 2005 by TheInsiders.com.

"It looks like he's going to Louisville this weekend with Drew Gladstone and his father," Cardozo Head Coach Ron Naclerio said. "There's an 80 percent chance he's going to Louisville but he might also go the Hopkins fight. [But] he does have tickets reserved for the Louisville - Florida game."

Davis, who attended the adidas ABCD camp last summer and earned a place in the underclass all-star game in Teaneck, is an extremely versatile and athletic interior performer. He's active in the paint, is a tough rebounder and blocks his share of shots, too.

"Theo Davis keeps it simple," TheInsiders Dave Telep said. "He's got a nice offensive game in the paint amd he has big time college potential. He's versatile enough to where he's able to impact games at both ends."

Originally from Toronto, Canada, Davis moved to New York this summer and now plays for one of the top ranked teams in the Big Apple. But before moving south of the boarder, long time Canadian grassroots hoops coach Ro Russell helped mold the 6'9 junior into one of the most coveted prospects along the east coast.

"For Theo, his biggest strength is his versatility," said GrassRoots Canada head coach Ro Russell. "He's very skilled."

Since transferring to Cardozo from Toronto, Davis is doing well and has been declared eligible to play this season, according to Naclerio.

Naclerio also said that Davis hasn't narrowed his list at this point and gets interest from 70-80 schools from around the nation.

"I would be shocked if he picked a school his junior year," Naclerio said.
