Coach Lorenzo Romar added to a stellar 2017 recruiting class today when Garfield guard Daejon Davis announced his commitment to play for the Huskies. If this sounds familiar, it’s because Davis originally committed to the Huskies last August and then withdrew it last spring.
Davis, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard is No. 43 in the ESPN 100 and chose UW (again) over Oregon, Gonzaga and Stanford. Scout.com has him as a 4-star recruit.
"I would have really messed up if I wasn’t a part of this," Davis said [via ESPN.com] of his choice to re-commit to Washington. Davis stated that he was not sure last spring if he wanted to stay home or not. After reconsideration, he's back with the Dawgs.
With the addition, Washington has the No. 4 recruiting class in the country for 2017. Davis joins current teammate Jaylen Nowell, Blake Harris, Mamadou DIarra and the No. 2 overall prospect Michael Porter, Jr.
If you thought 2016 was a good year for Coach Romar and his staff, 2017 may be better.
