Big Spring And Summer Ahead For Sophomore

Reporter Mike Sullivan profiles the individual game of Steele Davis, a sophomore forward from Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York (Long Island) ... Davis is a player worth watching this spring and summer ...

The spring and summer isn't the time for any underclassman to take off if they want to improve their individual games. And, whether you're ranked 10th or 510, there's ample room to make progress in certain parts of your game.

It's the case for Steele Davis, a 6-foot-8, 215-pound forward from Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York. Davis will improve for his junior year next season for the Pioneers only if he puts in the hard work.

Steele is a more effective player near the rim. When he moves to the perimeter, the areas to improve are his shooting and ballhandling. He's a player that if he does improve in these areas, Davis will add six to eight points to his scoring average next season.

OUR PREVIOUS EVALUATION BASED UPON PERSONALLY VIEWING OSNA BASKETBALL GAMES:

STEELE DAVIS scores most of his points near the rim. He does his most consistent work following up missed shots or running the floor in transition.

When he tries to get too fancy by hanging near the three-point line, defenders usually swarm and look for an opportunity to steal the ball.

STEELE DAVIS' EARLY LIST OF SCHOOLS:

It's early in his recruiting process. But the coaching staff at Our Savior New American previously mentioned schools like Syracuse, South Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, Memphis, Miami of Florida, Florida, Georgia, Southern California, Virginia Tech, Georgetown, and DePaul were watching his progress.
