De’Ron Davis now on campus, high school coach says

  • 08/21/2016 10:41 am in

The wait is over for De’Ron Davis to arrive at Indiana.

Overland coach Danny Fisher told Inside the Hall this morning that Davis, a class of 2016 four-star forward, arrived in Indiana this morning.

“He’s there,” Fisher said via text message. “Arrived early this morning.”

The freshman big man is also now listed in IU’s online student directory, as pointed out by Zach Osterman and Stu Jackson.

Davis spent the summer in Colorado working out with Fisher and finishing up academic requirements.

Davis chose the Hoosiers last November over Mississippi State. He is ranked the No. 40 prospect nationally in the final RSCI rankings for the class of 2016.

The 6-foot-9 forward was named Mr. Basketball in Colorado for 2016 by The Denver Post in the spring. He led Overland to two consecutive 5A state titles and finished his high school career with 442 blocked shots.

In four seasons, Davis and Overland compiled an 83-25 record.

The fall semester begins on Monday in Bloomington and practice for the 2016-17 season officially begins on September 30.

Indiana opens the regular season on Friday, November 11 against Kansas in the Armed Forces Classic in Hawaii.

    It’s appropriate that you posted the first reaction comment being that you were the one trying to worry us all for the last 2 months… lol

  • SCHoosier

    Yea..and now I’m worried about 1) does DD need an NCAA clearance 2) How many years will that take their track record with IU
    And hey..I’m usually a “glass is half FULL” guy!

    I pity this young man with his first workout with the strength and conditioning coach. He may be a tad sore the next day.

    Respectful and well spoken @ 6’10” 240lbs. Even if I were his age, glad I don’t have to play against him. Seems to know what he needs to do to help team and has high expectations. Welcome!

    This is really an unfounded post, logically. You say you are a ‘glass half full’ type of guy, but your posts would indicate otherwise. He is not from a foreign country, he has now fulfilled Indiana University requirements for student athletes, he is enrolled.. There is no logical reason to expect he would have any requirements in addition to what he has already fulfilled… more than any of the other incoming USA born students.. You ‘glass half empty’ guy .

    Just loved the smile on his face when he talked about picking us to beat Kentucky in his bracket.
