After a stellar summer with the Eric Gordon All-Stars, 2013 Warren Central forward Devin Davis Jr. is quickly becoming one of the most sought after recruits in the state.
The 6-5, 190-pound sophomore already holds offers from Indiana, Purdue, Illinois and Xavier and is drawing interest from Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Tennessee, Butler.
Davis was among the impressive group of visitors at Saturday’s Indiana-Michigan football game and gave Inside the Hall a quick recap of the day.
“I didn’t play in the open gym, but it was pretty cool seeing most of the other players there like Jeremy Hollowell and Cody Zeller,” he said. “They took us out on the field for the football game and introduced us to some of the players.”
Davis, who was accompanied by his parents, said he talked briefly with Tom Crean and the IU head coach emphasized the importance of hard work and continued improvement.
“He just told me to keep working hard and don’t let the recruiting process get to my head. Just keep working hard and get better.”
Davis, who was recently invited to tryout for the 2011-2012 USA Basketball Developmental National Team, is just beginning to sort through the recruiting process.
“I’m just taking it all in and trying to get every visit I can, see every school I can, see the different kinds of campuses,” he said.
As for a return trip to Bloomington, the Indiana staff invited the Warren Central sophomore to return on October 15 for Hoosier Hysteria, but he’s not yet sure he’ll attend.
“They invited me,” Davis said. “I don’t know yet, I’ll have to talk to my Dad.”
