LSU courts Alabama hoops star

The LSU basketball staff appears to have its work cut out for it to lure one of Alabama's top basketball prospects from his home state. Power forward Chuck Davis of Southside High School in Selma, Ala., has said he plans to visit Baton Rouge this weekend.

Last season, Davis (6-8, 210) led his team to a 25-4 record and the state playoffs where they lost to the eventual 5A champions. He averaged 25 points, 11 rebounds and an impressive eight blocked shots per game.

Davis has the ability to step out on the perimeter and make the 18-foot jump shot as well as the skills to post up down low. He is a very good defender and creates trouble for opposing players with his long arms.

Davis is also an excellent student, boasting a 3.7 GPA and 21 ACT score. Alabama appears to be the early favorite with LSU, Boston College, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and Alabama-Birmingham also under consideration. BC and Vandy hosted Davis in September. - Tim Watts, Bama Magazine

Two-sporter Stuckey leans to Auburn 

Chauncey Stuckey, a three-sport standout at Northside High in Warner-Robins, Ga., is one of the better prospects in the Southeast. The versatile athlete plays three positions in basketball and is a quarterback in football.

In basketball, Stuckey (6-1, 170) averaged 17 points, six assists and five rebounds per contest. He led his team to the first round of the state playoffs and played on one of the top AAU teams in the country. His short list of schools for basketball includes Miami and Auburn, who is recruiting him as a point guard.

Stuckey's football list is a bit longer: Auburn, Florida State, LSU and Clemson.

"I think Auburn is a place where you can really excel," said Stuckey, who is coached in football by Conrad Nix, the father of former Auburn quarterback Patrick Nix. - Inside the Auburn Tigers
