Recruiting Update - Theo Davis

This talent is on GT's radar for 2005, along with a LOT of other schools. In his latest game he scored 24 points, had 15 boards, and 16 blocks. Yes....16 blocks. He's actually considered the best Canadian player in his class and is playing his high school ball in Bayside NY. Colleges interested include UConn, Texas, Illinois, Mich, Mich St, UNC, Syracuse, USC.......etc.....etc.

Here is an excerpt from an article talking about UConn's interest in Davis:
"UConn assistant coach Tom Moore was an interested spectator Friday at the Cardozo High boys’ basketball practice in Queens. Moore was at Cardozo to check out junior Theo Davis, a 6-foot-9, 210-pound forward who recently moved to New York from Ontario, Canada.

Davis is among the best junior prospects in New York City this season. Although he needs to add strength, Davis figures to be a dominant player in the post when he reaches college.

Moore has been recruiting Davis since last season and checked him out at the Nike camp in Indianapolis during the summer. Davis has also been to a couple of UConn practices."

Another article I found from an Addidas tourney, says this:
"Some notable performances were put forth by a variety of players. The teams most consistent and dominant player was 6’9” Theo Davis. Davis was unstoppable all week long and continued to build on his national reputation. Some prominent coaches from conferences such as the Pac-10 and ACC even went as far as saying they would take Davis on their squad right now. Imagine what they will think in two years when Davis is done high school. "

Here is a story on his difficulty with American history (being Canadian and all).
