Schools Show Interest In Seton Hall Transfer

An update on the transfer status of Larry Davis, a former CTK player ...

After receiving his release from Seton Hall on Monday, Larry Davis's hunt for a new school is kicking into high gear. The 6-foot-4 sophomore guard and Deer Park native met with newly-minted Loyola Marymount coach Bill Bayno in New York on Friday.

"We had a good meeting," said Larry Davis, Sr., Larry's father. "In the next couple of days we're going to set up a visit (to go) out there."

The former UNLV head coach and Portland Trail Blazers assistant impressed the Davises with his rapport and track record for developing talent.

"Billy Bayno is a great guy," said Davis, Sr. "He develops kids to their maximum potential, and that is what impressed us. The one question we have is whether Larry wants to go to California or stay closer to home."

Davis is considering three schools at the moment: Loyola Marymount, Hofstra, and Rhode Island. The family expects the getting-acquainted phase of his recruitment to be brief.

"Most likely, it will be one of those three," said Davis, Sr. "We're going to take a couple of visits to try and find the best fit for him. We don't want to string this out. We just want to find the best fit for Larry. That's the plan right now."

Davis, a former Christ the King standout, averaged 5.8 points and 3.4 rebounds in 21.1 minutes as a sophomore at Seton Hall, which finished 17-15. He averaged 6.8 points and 3.4 rebounds for his career.

"He's happy with his release," said Davis, Sr. "He needed a change of scenery. To me, I don't think people really got a chance to see what he could do at Seton Hall. He got an opportunity (to play), but what he needed was a change of scenery all around."
