University of Dayton Head Coach Archie Miller picked up a huge pledge on Sunday evening when their top guard target, Kyle Davis, made the decision to pull the trigger. The four-star prospect had a big summer for the Mac Irvin Fire, and now he is headed to the Atlantic 10 school.
“I committed to Dayton today,” said Davis.
He continued, “I committed to Dayton because after sitting down with my family and talking to Coach Nick (Irvin), the decision was based on which school was best for me. They play my style of play and I have the opportunity to come in and do big things because they lost their starting point guard Kevin Dillard.”
According to Davis he feels his style fits in well with what the Flyers are doing on the floor under Miller’s leadership.
“It is actually a very good style for me,” said Davis. “I have seen a few of their games, and they get up and down the court. Coach Archie Miller lets his guards play and it is a great fit.”
For Davis he was out to prove all summer long that he is indeed a point guard and not a shooting guard. He feels he did that and he can prove it while on the floor for the Flyers.
“Over the last year I really stepped my game up a lot and showed people that I am on my way to being a point guard so people will stop saying I am a shooting guard,” said Davis. “I just wanted to show people I am a real point guard.”
For now the excitement for Davis is having this pledge out of the way. He knows he has big things ahead of him this high school season with his transfer from Hyde Park to Morgan Park where he will team with DePaul commitment Billy Garrett.
“I am very excited to have this out of the way so I can focus on being in shape to make a run for the city and state,” said Davis.
Davis is the first commitment for Dayton in the 2013 class, and one that they worked very hard for.
