Jeremiah Davis looking for the right fit

  • 04/18/2009 1:13 pm in

Muncie Central’s Jeremiah Davis was thrust into the national spotlight when then Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie offered him a scholarship following his freshman season. With his sophomore season in the books, Davis is on the spring AAU circuit with Indiana Elite’s Team Indiana and is enjoying playing alongside a talented cast.

“We’ve got a real talented team. My teammates are great,” Davis said. “We play together. We’ve got a lot of heart.”

The 6-3 guard averaged 13 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists as a sophomore and has picked up offers from Indiana, Purdue, Ball State and Tennessee in addition to his UK offer. Xavier and Ohio State watched him work out last week at Muncie Central.

“I don’t know about Kentucky, but hopefully once everything settles down, we’ll go down there and visit the campus,” he added. “Right now I’m just surveying to see what’s going on. We’re going to have to see what the right fit for me is.”

As far as his interest in the Hoosiers, Davis likes what he’s been able to see of the campus so far and says he keeps in regular contact with Tom Crean.

“I talk to Coach Crean a lot. He’s a good guy. He’s very energetic,” Davis said. “I’ve been down to campus about three times already. It’s really nice, I like it a lot.”

Scouting report: Davis is a strong point guard that can hit the jump shot off the dribble and also get to the basket and finish. In games on Friday evening and Saturday morning, Davis showed the ability to distribute the ball and also score in bunches. He’ll need to improve on defense and with his agility. He’s definitely a prospect the Indiana staff will be keeping tabs on over the summer.

    Have not seen J. Davis play, but I have heard good things. Wonder why Gillespie was offering all these frosh and eigth graders……who is D.Davis playing with this summer?

  • He's on Indiana Elite Team Indiana with J. Davis. Also on that team: Nic Moore (Warsaw), Levi Gardner (Edgewood), Austin Etherington (Hamilton Heights), Justin Gant (Terre Haute North), Vinny Zollo (Clark County, KY), Deng Leek (Veritas Academy, NC) and Cheir Ajou (Central Park, AL).

  • So I have read that Michael Avery a UK recruit at one time visited Indiana. Don't know much about him sure he is good though. Also I want to ask what you guys think. If Marquis Teague doesn't commit to IU do you think Crean will go hard after Irving. Who recently had a good game in Pitt. Tournament?

  • Saw Avery play last night and this morning. He's talented, but he'll only be a sophomore. Still too early to tell, in my opinion, if he's an Indiana caliber player. Nothing he did really jumped out at me, but he was solid.

    As far as the Irving-Teague question, I think IU is recruiting both players hard. It might just be a matter of who is willing to commit first. But if the Richard Pitino to Florida story comes to fruition as it appears it's going to, I think the Hoosiers are in great shape with Teague.

    Alex-

    Talked to someone in the know about teague last week. Word is he really likes Crean and would like to be close to home as he wants his parents to see him as much as possible. Opposite of his brother, as he wants that comfort level of being close to home……
