4-star guard and huge target for the Hoyas...

2020 4-star point guard and highly targeted recruit R.J. Davis is expected to be on the Georgetown Hoyas’ campus Tuesday for an Official Visit.

Ben Steele of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on the expected trip to Marquette last week:

The Golden Eagles hosted 5-foot-11 guard R.J. Davis on an unofficial visit on Wednesday. Davis is the No. 87 prospect in 2020 according to 247Sports, though he is becoming a hot name in recruiting circles. He plays for Archbishop (N.Y.) Stepinac High School and the New York Rens AAU team...

”R.J. does two things offensively that really separate him,” [Andy] Borman said. “One, he is extremely efficient. He has the ability to score a lot of points on few shot attempts...

”The EYBL is a very accurate indicator if your skills are transferable,” Borman said. “Because every time we step on the floor, the opposing team has anywhere from four to seven high-major basketball players.”

Pitt and UCLA appear to be on his radar as well.

Last week, Busting Brackets, wrote:

Davis is ranked just outside the top 100 by 247Sports (No. 102) and Rivals ( No. 104). However, 247Sports Composite and ESPN have him situated at No. 89 and No. 92 in the class, respectively.

The 6’0 point guard is a true floor general as he possesses great vision and is a fantastic distributor. But make no mistake about it, he absolutely knows how to put the ball in the hoop. Davis is extremely quick and once he gets to hole, he has the toughness to finish at the basket — with an array of finishes — even through contact.

Inside the Hall interviewed Davis at the NBPA Top-100 camp, where he made the all-tournament team:

What are you looking for in a school?

“Just a great relationship with the coach, coaching staff, teammates. Nice facility, nice campus, student life is very into the basketball games, and education, first and foremost. The ball will stop bouncing one day.”

What would you say are two or three big strengths of your game?

“I would say my ability to score and my ability to find open teammates. I can get myself going as well as get my other teammates going. I can get into the lane and either create for myself or dish it to an open guy for a big or a kickout for 3.”

The ball will stop bouncing? Sounds like Patrick Ewing has already made an impression!

Enjoy your time on the Hilltop, R.J. Davis (#4, above).
