Darwin Davis commits to Xavier

New Xavier head coach Chris Mack has received his first big recruit signing. Darwin Davis, 5'9" guard from Bloomington South, helped lead his high school team to an Indiana state championship. Davis is obviously a bit undersized for his position but his game is to slash and attack the basket. He uses his low center of gravity and speed to his advantage making him a very elusive guard. Davis was drawing interest from schools such as Purdue, Ohio, Butler, and Cincinnati. Many scouts believe that teams were staying away from Davis because of his size but feel that Davis has the ability to be a big time star for the Musketeers.

They do have Jordan Latham in there 2010 class who's 6-8 and by the time Davis is a freshmen guys like Crawford, Holloway, Redford, etc. will be seniors.

And why do so many scouts discount players because of height. Look at Steve Logan and Drew Lavender. Sure they weren't NBA caliber players but they exceeded in the college game.

Im just giving you a hard time dude...I have no problem with guys who are short...having a team of 10 of them is a problem though
