VT Academy's Davis will head to UMass in '12

Former Dallas Woodrow Wilson point guard Trey Davis, who signed with George Washington prior to head coach Karl Hobbs' firing, is headed to Vermont Academy next season and has committed to UMass for 2012, ESPN.com has confirmed.

The two-star guard will suit up with Family First out of Texas this summer before leaving for the Saxtons River, Vt. campus. Davis was also hearing from Florida State, Western Illinois, Sam Houston State and North Texas before committing to the Minutemen. He signed a letter of intent with the Colonials in April, and was granted his release last month following Hobbs' firing.

Davis' current evaluation on Scouts Inc. reads as follows:


Davis is scoring point guard. He is comfortable using ball screens to knock down the pull-up jump shot from 17 feet all the way out to 23 feet. If Davis is given space to operate, he will make good decisions with the basketball. Davis has good ball handling skills and passing ability when he driving the basketball.


Davis is an average athlete. He needs to work on his lateral quickness, so he can defend quicker point guards at the college level. His ability to score sometimes takes away from his teammates, and he needs to learn when to score and when to facilitate.

Bottom Line:

His ability to score and handle the basketball makes him an intriguing prospect at the point guard position. He is going to have to learn how to run a team and not just score from the point guard position to take his game to the next level.
