DawgmanTV: Daejon Davis in Vegas

LAS VEGAS - Daejon Davis is out to prove a point. While the AAU circuit is usually all about offense and high-flying acrobatics, the 6-foot-4, 175-pound, 2017 Lakeside guard wants to show coaches a different side. That’s what he did when his Seattle Rotary team beat an Arizona AAU team by 30 Friday as part of the Bigfoot Hoops Las Vegas Classic.

Dawgman.com’s Kim Grinolds spoke to Davis after the game. Here are some selected quotes.

On hitting the offensive boards hard - “Yeah. My coach asked me to rebound more with the smaller lineups, and to be more aggressive getting on the o boards. That’s what I do for my high school team when I’m out there, so I can rebound pretty well.”

Getting more comfortable playing on bigger stages like this? - “Yeah. Last year it was new to me, seeing all the coaches in the stands. And last year they weren’t here for me. This year they are here for me and I’ve got to show ‘em what I can do.”

Any new offers lately? - “California offered…Idaho, Washington State, Seattle U, and Montana.”

What’s on your agenda for the rest of the summer? - “After this I’m going to start working out and get ready for the high school season. I might go to the Tony Wroten camp in Seattle, but I might have an outdoor trip. I don’t know.”

Are you going to take your time in the recruiting process? - “I think I’m going to take my time with the recruiting process, just trying to figure out who is more down to earth than the others. That’s what I talk to my coach a lot about…just my relationship with the coaching staff and really get to know them and their program and how successful they are.”

Any schools going to be in it until the end? - “Well, all my schools, I think. I’m not going to cut my list down. I’m not one of those type of guys. I’ll just have my full list - or if my list stays the same, that’s fine too - and just wait it out.”
