Pitt landed a new basketball commitment today, as Khameron Davis verbally committed to the Panthers. Head Coach Kevin Stallings confirmed it with his New to the Zoo Tweet. Now, just exactly who is Khameron Davis?
It’s hard in this day and age to go under the radar, but that’s exactly what this recruit is - under the radar. The traditional recruiting sites have very limited information on Pitt’s newest recruit. I tried to do some digging.
Davis is is a 6’4” shooting guard and a native of Colorado. Davis played up through his junior season at Valor Christian Academy in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. As a junior, Davis led the team in scoring with 14.7 points per game and took his team to the state’s Elite 8. Davis was named to second team All-State in the CHSAA in Class 4A.
From there, Davis moved on to play for Sunrise Christian Academy in Bel Air, Kansas. His team played a national schedule, and helped guide them to a 27-8 final record. This is where his lone recruiting profile comes into play, as ESPN graded him as a two-star recruit. Here are some highlights from his time at Sunrise.
This past season, it appears Davis played for Forest Trail Academy in North Carolina while completing a prep year. Today was a bit of a surprise as this name seemingly came from out of nowhere. Here is a more recent clip of some of his highlights.
Hard to know what to expect out of Davis, since he literally is off the radar entirely. As we all know, Pitt needs to fill out a roster for next season. The class of 2017 is pretty well picked over, so between grad transfer and regular transfer and players like Davis, that is what Pitt is likely going to add from here on out.
To recap where everything stands with the roster, Ryan Luther is back. Pitt has five recruits signed on to play for next season as well. They have also added Malik Ellison as of yesterday, although he won’t be able to play next season to meet the transfer requirements. In addition to that, they have Rozelle Nix and Jonathan Milligan available, but it’s still in question whether those two are returning or not. Now they have added Khameron Davis. If Nix and Milligan return, they have four roster spots available, and six if they do not.
Stay tuned, more news will likely be on the way in the coming weeks.
