Davila Gets Visit From Prosser

Victor Davila is getting tons of attention from college coaches these days and Wake Forest is one of the schools showing interest. While the Demon Deacons have yet to offer a scholarship they were among just a few schools that sent their head coach to watch him workout.

"They've done a really good job recruiting him," Boonville (NC) Starmount Coach Kent Phillips said. "Coach Gaudio and Coach Prosser have done extremely well. They did a great job as far as showing interest."

While the Deacs are on his list, Phillips made it clear Davila has no favorites. The 6-8, 210-pound PF has a number of schools chasing him and was visited during the open period by Virginia Tech, VCU, Virginia, Kansas, Clemson, Appalachian State, Pittsburgh, N.C. State, Memphis, Wake Forest, North Carolina and UNC-Charlotte.

"He feels really comfortable with several schools. What he's looking to do is wait out the process until after Christmas and then I think really start to narrow it down to a select few schools. After Christmas and after basketball season is over really try to get to know all of the schools and get a feel for them so he can decide."

The best way to get to know a school is to take a visit. The past few weeks Davila has taken visits to a couple of schools close to home.

"Since he's been here he's been to Appalachian. He's been to Virginia Tech. He's been to Wake. He's been to Carolina. He's looking to go to VCU this weekend and make a trip there."

Phillips said Davila's visit to Wake Forest went well.

"It's a small school atmosphere, which I think he feels comfortable with and it's close to home and plus it's ACC basketball. It has a little bit of everything. He feels good about several schools right now he isn't going to make a decision until his senior year."

While the recruiting process has had a lot of Davila's attention getting fully healed from a broken cheek bone, which he suffered playing with the Puerto Rican national team, has been the main focus.

"He's fully healed. He's been working hard and he's getting a whole lot better. He's back to 100-percent."

Although Davila is ranked as Scout.com's 9th best center, he's trying to make the transition to the power forward spot.

"He's looked extremely well and he's really developing and he's really starting be a true four man. He knows that's what he has to be in college is a four man. His shot has really developed well and his ball handling has improved so he's looking a whole lot better."
