785802[1]Michigan extended a scholarship offer to class of 2015 guard Eric Davis on Thursday evening during an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor. The news was first reported in a tweet from his high school coach and confirmed by Davis via text message.

Davis is a four-star prospect and ranked in the top-40 nationally according to 247Sports Composite rankings.

Davis has previously visited Michigan multiple times for basketball and football games, including the Notre Dame football game last fall that he called “one of the most fun nights ever”.

Davis also holds offers fromMichigan StateKansasOregon, Auburn, North Carolina State, ProvidenceIllinois, UCLA, UNLV and Massachusetts with interest from Kentucky, Syracuse and Arizona. He has mentioned taking official visits to Florida (June 7th), UCLA and UNLV.

Jalen Coleman and Jalen Brunson are the only other prospects that Michigan has offered in the class of 2015.

    i think we got this guy

      I remember when he came to the football game last year, people questioned his sincerity in regards to his true interest in Michigan. So I think you are an extreme optimist that he will commit to Michigan considering the fact he is already planning official visits to colleges that are all over the country and he didn’t mention an official visit to Michigan.

      • rick dunaway

        he been here 5 or 6 times. more then any school

      • Chezaroo

        Lot of things in play, well see who blinks first. If State gets Brunson and Harris, Davis will not be going there.

      • swinawer

        I doubt he would have been offered if he didn’t express serious interest to the coaches.

  • DingoBlue

    Would prefer Coleman over him personally, but if he wants to Go Blue, then more power to him!

  • Chezaroo

    Well this cements that we are a real long shot to land Brunson now, IMO.

    • DingoBlue

      I tend to agree with you. No sense in expanding the net on a similar type of prospect to the two offers you have out unless you are not confident with one or more of them.

        Davis is an off-guard IMO. I think this puts some pressure on Jalen Coleman.

        Bigger key at PG is probably locking up Derryck Thornton Jr. Michigan looks very strong in that recruitment right now.

        • DingoBlue

          Agreed, I mean in general that I believe Davis, Coleman, and Brunson all can kind of fill the role of MAAR of scorer who can distribute.

          Really hopeful for Thornton. How strong is strong? Will we maybe see another interview after he inevitably gets offered in June?

          • http://www.umhoops.com/ Dylan Burkhardt

            Brunson is a pure point IMO.

            Davis/Coleman/MAAR/Harris all seem to project to the two spot.

          • Frank Chuck

            MAAR seems to be a combo guard. I see him as a 1 or 2.

        • Chezaroo

          Thornton and Leaf are my Christmas in July wishes! But that is SO FAR away! Even if one of them drops for us it will be extremely difficult to ward off the vultures. Man it will be very discouraging to lose out on both of the Jalens, if that happens. Booker and Kennard Déjà Vu 2?

          • Felix

            Booker must not be happy with the Harrison twins returning to UK….he should have come to Michigan and most likely start at 2 right away

          • geoffclarke

            I don’t think Booker would have started over LeVert.

          • Felix

            I would think Levert would be 3, chatman 4, and then booker at 2.

          • geoffclarke

            I think Irvin is better than Booker.

        • GregGoBlue

          If we are truly recruiting Davis as an off-guard, he will be the smallest 2 (not only at 6’3, but 165 lbs) we have had at UM since Stu Douglass. Just when you thought there was an established paradigm shift…

          Now with Dawkins, MAAR, Hatch (and Irvin, assuming he is here for awhile) and potentially one of Eron Harris/Coleman/Davis, all of a sudden the backcourt looks a bit more crowded, eh?

          Is MSU recruiting him at the 1 or the 2? With Brunson and Davis both giving MSU a hard look, it will be interesting to see what they’re planning on doing. I imagine Izzo has a similar plan.

  • Champswest

    I think he will end up at MSU.

      WRONG

    look for more 2015 and 2016 offers coming soon yes yes yes
