Men's basketball player Jackie Davis signed a national letter of intent with Washington State today, becoming WSU's 11th scholarship player and new coach Ernie Kent's second signee. Here is what we wrote about Davis when he gave a verbal commitment to play for WSU back in April.
Davis is the third player to sign with WSU in the class of 2014, joining junior college forward Aaron Cheatum and point guard Tramaine Isabell from Seattle's Garfield High School, who originally committed to previous coach Ken Bone. The 6-foot-3 guard from Rolling Hills High School in Long Beach, California averaged 23.6 points, 3.6 assists and 5.4 rebounds after transferring from Allen High School in Allen, Texas.
“Jackie Davis is a very versatile basketball player that can play multiple positions,” Kent said in a press release. “He fits perfectly in our system because of his skill set, his ability to pass, dribble and shoot the basketball, and play the game in the open court. He is a very gifted athlete and I'm sure Cougar fans will come to enjoy his athleticism and his ability to play the game.”
