Davis Sets Wolfpack Official

Christ The King (NY) guard Larry Davis has seen his recruitment explode after several strong performances on the AAU circuit.

"It's been great," Larry Davis said. "After Charlie Weber, more coaches came in and saw me. Seton Hall, St. John's, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, Villanova, Florida, and UCONN all came in and saw me. All of them have offered."

Davis has already scheduled official visits to the three programs expressing the most interest: NC State, Villanova, and Pittsburgh.

"I set up my visits this week," Davis said. "I'm going to North Carolina State on June 3rd, Pittsburgh on June 10th, and Villanova on June 16th.

What does he like about those three programs?

"I just like their styles of play," Davis said. "NC State runs an offense like my high school, with a lot of motion and cutting. I'm comfortable with that.

"Villanova has a freelance system that gives you a lot of freedom, and Pittsburgh has more of a drive-and-dish style that I could see myself doing well in too."

Davis, a 6'3 combo guard who averaged over 14 points a game for Christ The King as a junior, stars for Team Odom on the AAU circuit. He plays both backcourt positions and will take his talents to the triangle in late May for the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions.

"I'm a player that can play all three positions," Davis said. "I can play any of them and my thing is shooting. Coaches say I can shoot the ball and make my teammates better with my passing.

"I just want to get on the court when I go to college and play. It doesn't matter what position. I can play all three spots well enough to play early."

The Tournament of Champions will likely give Wolfpack fans a glimpse of what Davis can do on the court, and he may take an unofficial to NC State while in the triangle. The Wolfpack have been on Davis from the beginning and they'll have the first official visit. He's impressed with what NC State brings to the table and they'll likely be there in the end.

"The coaching staff seems like they really care about their players," Davis said of NC State. "I think it would be a great place to play. I like the ACC. The ACC is a tough league, and I really think I could fit in the ACC."

Could he be making an early decision?

"I might be ready to decide after those visits," Davis said. "If no new schools come at me hard, I could be ready to decide after I see NC State, Pittsburgh, and Villanova.

"I'm just looking for the best fit. I want to talk with the players about the school, see the atmosphere around the campus, and see the facilities."
