Jeremiah Davis Keeping Eye On Michigan State

Muncie IN Central point guard Jeremiah Davis is one of the players that MSU has targeted for the 2011 recruiting class and he's kept a close eye on Michigan State and enjoyed watching them win a share of the Big Ten title. Now, he's leading a turnaround of his team's fortunes and stamping himself a major D1 prospect. Find out the latest when you GET INside.

Muncie Central point guard Jeremiah Davis took the time to check in with to talk about his season.

Central looked like they were going nowhere fast heading into season's end with a 3-8 record but they turned it all around and have gone on a win streak that has them in good stead heading into the ISHAA playoffs.

Muncie won nine of their last ten games winning their district and now head into the regionals were the competition will undoubtedly stiffen.

But observers are giving Davis a lot of credit for the turnaround as he has averaged 18 points per game during the run and learned from an early season one game suspension handed down by his school.

"Yeah, we've got it going pretty good down here and we've got the regionals starting Saturday," said Davis of his team's momentum.

Davis said even in the midst of the tournament run he's enjoying the recruiting process which he said is "very good" and that he's "just taking his time with things."

That hasn't stopped the offers from flowing in. Since the last time we visited with the star guard, Davis has picked up three more offers and now list them from Ball State, Cincinnati, Indiana, Michigan State, Purdue, Tennessee and Xavier.

We wondered how the Spartans were faring in their efforts to land the talented 6-foot-3 junior.

"I'm still hearing from Michigan State, they called the other day and I've got to call them back here soon. I haven't been up to visit since before the season started so I'm due for a trip up there."

He said he's been watching the Spartans, especially down the stretch and was pleased with how they came together.

"They finished the season, pretty strong and got a share of the Big Ten title, so that was great."

So where do they stand with him, could he see himself suiting up in the Green-and-White

"Oh yeah, oh yeah," he said enthusiastically. "They're a high priority with me. They're at the top (of my list). We asked Davis to clarify what he meant by the top of his list, are they his #1 and his favorite? Davis responded, "They're one of the tops."

The team most often linked with him is Indiana, who has tried to convince him and the rest of the top players in Indiana to stop home to play for the Hoosiers under former Izzo assistant Tom Crean. Kentucky, who has yet to offer, also is a consideration.

At this point, GSN believes MSU is the team to beat for Davis services and will be watching anxiously to see how his team does in the IHSAA regionals.
