Others staying in touch include Xavier, Ohio State and Cincinnati, and Davis remains interested in them.
The coaching change at Xavier – assistant Travis Steele was promoted after Chris Mack left for Louisville – hasn't influenced his recruitment, nor has OSU snagging a commitment from Alonzo Gaffney, the No. 1-ranked player in Ohio for 2019.
“I’m going to do what the coach says. I’m that kind of player. I’m coachable. Whatever coach needs me to do, I’ll do,” he said. “I like Gaffney’s game. I played with him maybe one summer. We kind of jelled together when we played.”

At this point, Davis is looking at making a college decision after his senior season is over.
While most players used to lock in their destination during the early signing period in November, waiting until spring is a growing trend.
“I’m just waiting to view all my options,” he said. “I’m looking for a school where I can feel at home and the coaches treat me like family. Good players around me, good environment, good academics.”
