According to multiple sources, Todd Beamer High School (Federal Way, Wash.) senior Kevin Davis was on campus yesterday for Washington’s 97-68 victory over UCLA.
There are many of you out there who probably don’t know much about Davis, but he’s a unique case to say the least.
First, let’s examine the tangibles.
Davis stands a slender 6’8″ and is well-built despite his lanky stature. With long arms and deceptive quickness, the forward has been a stat monster throughout the ’09-’10 prep season.
Davis is averaging over 22 PPG for Beamer so far this year, and has recorded double figures in points in every single game. He has also earned his fair share of triple-doubles, a much rarer feat at the high school level than at higher levels, when game length (32 minutes, to 40 or 48 in the college or pros) and the team aspect are taken into account.
Davis is a low-post presence that has the ability to create or slash off the wing. He has been recognized as one of the better dunkers in the region, but must work on his shot to be effective at the next level.
