Tigers Snatch Nashville Rising Star


A huge upside, a huge summer is generally two ingredients that go well together when concocting how to make you a viable prospect on the next level.

Jamonte Davis (Hillsboro) was turning heads last year before an accident just before the start of his junior year kept him out of action. The 6'7 rising senior wing got back onto the circuit in July just in time for the evaluation period and began turning heads once again.

Davis, who ran this summer with the vaunted Team Nashville crew, ended his recruitment this weekend when he chose the Tigers of Tennessee State.

A huge coup for the Ohio Valley Conference stalwart and first year head coach Travis Williams.

Davis brings a major upside to his game. He has terrific quickness; explosion and can knock down the short jumper as well.

Coach Williams has secured the type of player from the local area who can hopefully begin a pipeline streaming towards the TSU campus.

Davis is the 11th member of the Class of 2013 to pledge his wares to the D1 corps.
