Davis Is Ready For USA Basketball

Devin Davis

INDIANAPOLIS -- After visiting three schools during the day the Indianapolis tour ended at Warren Central Tuesday evening to spend some time with Devin Davis.

The 2013 class in the state of Indiana has some pretty good basketball talent. Among the top prospects is sophomore wing prospect Devin Davis.

A 6-foot-6, 185-pound small forward out of Warren Central High School, Davis was among the 33 prospects invited to Colorado Springs (Colo.) for USA Basketball's U16 National Team Mini-Camp.

"I was real surprised, but happy too," Davis told Scout.com following a workout on Wednesday. "I just want to represent Indiana."

Well Davis will get that opportunity. As the only player invited from the city of Indianapolis and one of two from the state, the other being Indiana commit James Blackmon, Davis will have a chance to showcase his skills against the best.

But that is nothing new to Davis. Throughout this past spring and summer playing for the Eric Gordon All-Stars, Davis was among their top scorers and proved himself as a high major prospect.

"I think I played pretty good," he said. "I always think I could play better, but I think I played hard and I did a lot for the team."

"I'm trying to get faster, get my foot work better and work on my mid-range," Davis added."

Davis, who cites slashing to the rim and rebounding as his best attributes, spent an hour on Tuesday going through an individual workout. He went through multiple ball handling and shooting drills.

"We work out all the time," Davis said. "We workout almost every day."

While there weren't any college coaches checking out the work out on Tuesday, he's had Tom Crean, John Beilein, Matt Painter, Chris Mack and Bruce Weber in to evaluate him this fall.

To go with interest from Indiana, Michigan, Purdue, Xavier and Illinois, Ohio State, Tennessee, Butler and Arizona are showing strong interest.

In the past few weeks Davis has taken unofficial visits to Ohio State and Michigan. This week he's set to head to Bloomington (Ind.) to see Indiana and take in their game against Michigan.

"It's kind of early," Davis said of his recruitment. "I've been thinking about it, but it's still kind of early."

While it may be early, and Davis isn't expecting to make a decision in the near future, he has already picked up scholarship offers from Indiana, Purdue, Xavier and Illinois.
