At one time, 6′-4″ shooting guard Daejon Davis, a top 50 prospect in the 2017 class, was committed to the college basketball program in his city of Seattle, the Washington Huskies. Davis reconsidered his pledge, and has gained plenty of recruiting attention in recent months.
Now, the picture of who is a legitimate contender to land Davis for college has come clearer. Davis publicly narrowed his list to five schools on Tuesday, four of which are in the Pac-12. His home-state programs, Washington and Gonzaga, each made the cut, along with Oregon, Stanford and Arizona.
Davis is a standout at Garfield (WA), where he plays alongside of Jaylen Nowell, who already committed to Washington. He was recently named as one of 18 finalists for the 2016 USA Basketball Men’s U17 World Championship Team, though he did not make the final roster.
