In just the past week, IUPUI, LIU and Missouri State have all offered 2022 Murry Bergtraum (NY) point guard Dior Davis.
The 6-1 lead guard has a good balance of scoring and playmaking, but like most New York bred point guards Davis gets buckets.
Manhattan, Bryant, St. Francis, Morgan State, Stony Brook and Norfolk State have all expressed interest in the guard that has one simple response for his recent scholarship offers.
“Just playing against top teams and players and performing,” he said.
But to coaches, he’s doing a lot more.
From initial looks, Davis has the scoring touch that many of the great New York guards possessed. He has a three-level scoring repertoire that allows him to constantly apply pressure on the defense.
He can get to the middle of the floor with ease and his playmaking abilities have consistently improved as he’s gotten more experience under him. When talking to coaches about his game, they keep it simple with their evaluation.
“[Coaches like] my scoring ability and ability to get my teammates involved,” he said. “I can lead a team in a variety of ways and not just scoring.”
Davis is a few years removed from a college decision and he’s still feeling out the programs after him. He’s going to take his time with the process and weigh all options.
He has plenty of opportunities now that do not all range on the east coast or in the state of New York and has plans to add even more after the summer. His message to coaches that might not consider him because of their location is once again, simple.
“Location doesn’t really matter,” he said. “But, I would like to get out the city for college.”
