The Washington Huskies haven’t had a highly competitive basketball program for awhile, but they are working to get back to being a contender. One piece of that puzzle has been picked up in their 2017 recruiting class in the form of four-star combo guard Daejon Davis.
Davis announced his decision to commit to the Huskies on Twitter.
I am excited and blessed to announce I will be attending the University of Washington 😈 #DawgPackStandUp

Davis is a very solid pickup for the Huskies and has quite a bit of potential for the future.
During his sophomore season in high school, Davis showed off his ability to score the basketball. He averaged 19.9 points per game throughout the season and has much more potential to reach for moving forward. Any college coaching staff can work with a player that has that type of scoring talent as a sophomore, especially at a school like Washington who has a need for more scoring.
At 6-foot-4 and 175 pounds, Davis has excellent athleticism and size to be a point guard. Washington could decide to use him as a shooting guard, but he would create better matchup issues for opponents as a point guard.
Expect to hear more about Davis in the coming year and don’t be surprised if other schools continue trying to pry him away from the Huskies.
