2020 wing Jyare Davis committed to Providence, picking the Friars over Depaul, Florida, Rutgers, Miami, St. John’s, and others. This is not the type of recruiting pick up that will get many headlines but Davis is a solid player that should be able to make an impact on the college level. At 6’6″ with the ability to play at shooting guard or small forward, and he can create a shot well off of the dribble although he is not the quickest player heading to the basket. Davis was very highly rated in the beginning of his high school career before seeing his rank drop significantly although that can be somewhat attributed to him missing last seasons AAU time frame with an injury and it would not be a surprise to see him outplay his three star status. His shot needs work as is the case with many incoming freshman, but his skill set playing both inside and outside of the paint fits well with the Ed Cooley offense. He has strong athleticism and is capable of making plenty of highlight plays, while how much of an impact he is going to make in college will come down to his ability to defend and shoot the ball at an efficient level.
Davis is ranked #179 by 247, and Rivals has him as an unranked three star. Providence has been bringing in solid talent under Ed Cooley although the 2020 class is light with Davis being the second commit. Most likely not an instant impact kind of recruit or a player that will be hearing his name called on draft night in the next couple of seasons but he has the tools to be effective.
