Point Guard Eric Davis to Trim List This Summer

LAS VEGAS – Eric Davis , a 2015 point guard out of Saginaw (MI) Arthur Hill, has been picking up momentum on the recruiting trail, and with good reason—as his play at this week’s LeBron James Skills Academy has shown, he’s one of the nation’s top backcourt prospects.

And it’s only going to get more intense for Davis, who is just beginning the process of sorting out his list and his visits.

There won’t be any shortage of suitors who want to get him on campus.

“UConn has offered,” the 6-foot-3 Davis said on Friday, running through the interested parties. “Texas recently offered. I’ve been talking to Kentucky a lot. Oregon, NC State, Michigan, Michigan State as well. Iowa, UCLA. And UNLV has also been in the mix, too.”

It’s quite a list, and Davis knows he’s going to have a tough time paring it down. But he’s determined to narrow his choices by the end of the summer.

“After July I’m going to trim my list down,” he said. “So hopefully I can get at least a top seven, top eight. I just want to trim it down, not rushing the process at all.”

Once he sets his initial list, he’ll go about organizing his official visits. As of now, there are only two programs locked in.

“I’m actually going to visit UCLA and UNLV officially,” Davis said. “Those are my two visits that I know so far. I’m not really sure about the other ones yet. I’m still trying to set some dates up and actually confirm and clarify the dates, so that’s the next step.”

You mentioned the names of a lot of key players, but omitted the names of 2 key players in the

Ranger revival this season. Talbot, for sure and Mats Zucarella, who lit a fire under the team with his play; skating, puck & stick handling, passing, shooting, scoring...and his absolutely fearless play.

Zuc is the new Cally.

Last night was a solid win for the Rangers and with the ups and downs of the Rangers thus far, I can understand Ranger fans getting optimistic. Although I am a Rangers fan, I still believe they are missing many parts and they would need to play the way they played against Chicago, just to make the playoffs. Let's hope they can respond well from this win and continue into the next game.

Pierre has a man-crush on anything that's not a Ranger!

I had said this from the beginning of the season: the Rangers will be a .500 team the first half of the season, and a terror down the stretch and heading into the playoffs.

True Rangers fans, hockey fans in general, form patient opinions about their teams.

I'm surprised every third word out of Pierre's mouth wasn't Crosby. Unless you guys edited it out for continuity....

@J Paul Read When you suggest that the Rangers are going to be a terror down the stretch, what do you forsee their record to be in the remaining 37 gms of the regular season?

I honestly haven't looked at the schedule to give you a definitive record, but I can see them stringing it together to end up as a five or six coming out of the east, and a team that no one will want to see in the first or second round. I'm not predicting a Cup this year, but they're on the right track heading into next season.
