Rob Senderoff and his staff at Kent State added their second verbal commitment of the 2014 class. Raasean Davis committed to Kent State just a week and a half after his visit.

Raasean Davis took a visit to Kent State a week and a half ago and when the 6-foot-8 power forward left their campus he knew that was the place for him. After thinking it over for more than a week, Davis pledged to Rob Senderoff and his staff on Wednesday.

“When I went on the visit I had already made my mind up,” Davis told “I told [my family] then I was going to commit to Kent State. As soon as I left I knew that’s where I wanted to be.

What stood out at Kent State to Davis?

“I just felt like it would be a good fit,” he said. “When I went out there with the guys. I felt like we bonded real well. I felt like with them, the coaches I could reach my full potential. I think they’ll work with me and be patient and give me time to develop.”

“They are going to work me and push me at the same and I’ll have support and I’ll be able to develop,” he added.

Davis said over the course of his recruitment he accumulated 27 scholarship offers. Among the schools that were around late in his recruitment were Mercer, Wichita State, Southern Miss and Jacksonville.

“They were consistent with recruiting me and staying in contact with me,” he said about Kent State. “That meant something to me. A lot of coaches wouldn’t call me and text me as much as Kent. You always want to go somewhere you are wanted but also somewhere you needed.”

Davis, a standout at Dallas (Ga.) Paulding County, is Kent State’s second pledge in the 2014 class. He joins Rosel Hurley, a wing out of Shaker Heights (Ohio) High, to make up their current class.
