ESPN No. 43 high school senior Daejon Davis has recommitted to the University of Washington after pulling out of his agreement to join the school back in April.

 

The 6-4 shooting guard out of Garfield HS (Seattle, WA) averaged 12.8 points and 3.6 rebounds on 39 percent shooting from three for Seattle Rotary in the Nike EYBL this year.

 

“There was a piece of me that was unsure,” Davis told ESPN of committing to the Huskies. “I didn’t know if I wanted to stay home or what I really wanted to do as far as college goes.”

 

“But I wanted to do something special for my city,” added Davis. “Just over time, I got to see other schools and I saw what was happening with Washington. I would have really messed up if I wasn’t a part of this.”

 

When Davis decommitted back in April, he said he wanted to keep his opportunities open, but he never ruled UW out.

 

“I [had] never looked at other options, so I just decided that I’d at least look around and find my most fitting college to attend, which could still very well be UW,” Davis told Scout.com in April.

 

Well now the search has ended where it began and Davis is a Husky again.

 

And Washington is getting back a heck of a player.

 

“Daejon Davis is a versatile shooting guard whose best attribute may be the fact that he’s a rare off guard who is such a good passer,” reads Scout’s analysis. “The amount of ways he has to score or create off the dribble makes him a very tough player to defend.”

 

At UW, Davis will join fellow 2017 recruits No. 2 Michael Porter Jr., No. 56 Jaylen Nowell, No. 21 PG Blake Harris, and No. 46 PF Mamoudou Diarra.
