San Jacinto guard picked up scholarship offer while on weekend visit

Junior college guard Corey Davis was impressed during his visit at Western Kentucky

San Jacinto (Tex.) College guard Corey Davis may not currently claim a favorite, but his experience on The Hill over the weekend certainly boosted Western Kentucky's chances of landing his services.

The 6-foot-2 guard spent a portion of the weekend making an official visit at WKU.  He toured the campus and program facilities, spent time visiting with the coaching staff and attended Saturday's game at E.A. Diddle Arena.

"I had a wonderful time," he told WKU Insider on Sunday.

Impressed throughout his visit, Davis said that "the support everyone shows the school stood out to me the most."

His time spent with head coach Rick Stansbury was also a key moment for Davis.  The pair discussed the improving direction of the team and how Davis could be crucial in the continuing rise of the tradition-rich program. More importantly, he was officially offered a scholarship.

"We talked about the team, what they are building towards, how I could fit in the program and other things," he said.  "There is a lot to look forward too, definitely. The future is bright for the Hilltoppers. If I inserted myself into that it would be a great situation."

A product of Lafayette (La.) High School, Davis is in his second season at San Jacinto, where he has helped guide his team to a 13-0 start to the season.  A effective shooter, Davis is averaging 18 points a game and is connecting on 54 percent of attempts.  His 47 percent accuracy from beyond the arc ranks second in Region 14.

Davis continues to remain open for his future, he did indicate that he could see himself becoming a Hilltopper.

"Definitely somewhere I can see myself playing ball for the next two years," he said via Twitter after completing his visit.
