Thrower and Davis Commit

9 Sep

No we did not go through the drive through at McDonalds, but the state of Michigan had a pair of 2014 combo guards commit to division one schools in a span of two days.  Muskegon’s Deshaun Thrower says he will be attending Stoney Brook, and Frederick Douglass’ Darrell Davis gave a verbal commit to the Flyers of Dayton.

darrellDarrell is a tall, long, lanky guard that saw his recruiting stock rise during the July live period of AAU basketball.  The 6’4″ 170 pound Davis is truly an explosive offense weapon.   Darrell can flat out score the rock from anywhere on the floor.  You name an offensive skill he probably has it.  Whether it be the mid-range, three point range, pull-up jumpshot, attacking the basket with either hand, but more importantly, he has great court vision for a lead guard.  Darrell is always looking to find an open teammate and drops a beautiful pass in the process.  Darrell took an official visit down Dayton over this past weekend and committed on site to the Flyers.  Davis can now turn his attention to the high school regular season with his Hurricanes, who are one of the favorites to win the Class B crown.
