Report: Michigan offers 2017 guard Brad Davison

Dylan Burkhardt

Michigan offered class of 2017 guard Brad Davison this afternoon during an unofficial visit to Ann Arbor.

The news was first reported by Ryan James.

Davison is one of the best shooters in the class of 2017 and he’s been on a whirlwind tour of visits over the last month. The 6-foot-3 guard has tripped to Stanford (official), Northern Iowa, Butler and Dayton with additional trips scheduled for Northwestern and Wisconsin.

Davison has been the third-best shooter against expectations in the Nike EYBL circuit this spring according to analytics from Krossover.

    Kid can ball. Would be a great addition as a backup point and someone you can throw at the 2 if he gets it going. Looks like when he has it going, you want him on the floor.

    • A2MIKE

      agree. Looks like a great backup PG, ala Spike. Probably wants to start somewhere though, and it would be tough to play him and X at the same time.

  • Chillax

    Is he a lefty?

    • A2JD

      I think he was shooting his jumpers with his right but he did finish with his left once or twice.

  • Wayman Britt

    He sure was scoring against that one team in the video. Well by those stats it shows he is a shooter. Can he stay in front of his man? What about foot speed?

  • bobohle

    Good stats,but would not make him a priority. The kind Beilein likes to recruit though. Excellent student and probably squeeky clean character wise. IMO.

    He looks pretty terrific, but quick point of information. Do these highlight videos EVER show defense? It speaks volumes that half the game is ignored in these self aggrandizing highlight reels.

    • Highlights of strong defensive rotations aren’t going to draw many YouTube views.

      • michaeltheoriginal

        Fair point, but don’t recruiters look at these kinds of videos to do an initial evaluation of a player’s game? Likewise, don’t athletes and their handlers put out these promotional videos to make a case to potential recruiters? Wouldn’t a good defender want to market that part of his game too? I suspect many kids get recruited without paying much attention to their defense, perhaps based on the (false) assumption that this can always be learned or is merely a product of greater effort. We are inculcating an entire generation of athletes with the bad habits.

        • I don’t think many coaches are extending scholarships offers without watching kids play in person. And if they are watching film there are watching more than a YouTube clip.
