Laramie, Wyo. -- University of Wyoming basketball coach Heath Schroyer announced on Monday that A.J. Davis has signed a national letter of intent with the Wyoming basketball program and will enroll at UW in the Fall of 2008.

"I am really excited about adding A.J. Davis to the program," said Schroyer. "He is a quality young man, a quality student and a great basketball player. He is a legitimate 6'5" player who is athletic, can put the ball on the floor, can get to the rim and can shoot the ball. He is my kind of player, and I am excited about adding A.J. to the Wyoming basketball family."

A 195-pound guard from Columbus, Ohio, Davis attended Linden-McKinley high school before spending the 2007-08 academic year at Harmony Community School in Cincinnati.
