Crier Recruiting Corner – Introducing 2024 Guard Daquan Davis

When Kim English took the Providence College head coaching job, he instantly started recruiting. One of the first offers he handed out as head man of the Friars is 2024 guard Daquan Davis. Davis plays at St John’s College High School in DC and is a Baltimore native. This fits a theme of English aggressively recruiting the DMV area. Davis plays for Team Take Over on the AAU circuit, alongside big man Patrick Ngonba II. Both are visiting on an official visit this weekend.

Davis is ranked 81st on 247sports for the class of 24 and is listed as a 4-star prospect. Let’s take a look at Daquan’s tape.

Davis is a 6-1 guard who can really score the basketball. He’s great in transition and is a crafty finisher around the rim. He also possesses a nice jumper that he uses in the mid-range and behind the arch. He’s good at finding his spots and hits pull-up jumpers with consistency. He is capable of facilitating, but scoring is the biggest part of his game. With him only being 6-1 it will be interesting to see if he becomes more of a complete point guard or if he’s more of a scoring combo guard.

Defensively, he plays with high energy and gets after it. His tenacity on defense reminds me a bit of current Friar Jayden Pierre. It remains to be seen what kind of passer he will be in college. Another trait of his game is that the kid is a winner. He led St John’s College High School to the championship in the highly competitive WCAC this past season.

After this upcoming season there will be plenty of openings on the roster. Josh Oduro and Ticket Gaines will have used up their eligibility, while Carter and Hopkins may pursue professional careers after this season. You also have the Alyn Breed situation still up in the air. It will be interesting to see how English approaches his first true recruiting class at PC, and Davis certainly appears to be a priority.
