Liberty has picked up a commitment from Jaylen Davis, a 2023 high school prospect from Richmond, Kentucky.
Davis is a 6’5″, 165 pound prospect that attends Madison Central High School in Kentucky. He also owns an offer from Eastern Kentucky and had interest from several schools including Belmont, Marshall, and Appalachian State. Davis committed while on a visit this weekend. Davis picked up the offer from his hometown EKU during 8th grade.
Davis set a school record during his career with 10 made three-pointers in a single game, breaking the mark previously set by his school principal. He averaged 22 points per game this past season and was a finalist for 2023 Mr. Kentucky. Just last week, Davis took home Kentucky MVP honors in an all-star game against an Ohio all-star team, leading his team with 19 points.
In addition to being a good three-point shooter, Davis also is a very good defender. In high school, he would typically get the opposing team’s top wing scorer. In a game this past February, Davis was matched up with Kentucky signee Reed Sheppard, and the Liberty commit got the best of the matchup on both ends of the court. Davis scored 36 points, including seven three-pointers, in a win over North Laurel and Sheppard, 74-58. Sheppard, who entered the game averaging 22 points per game, was held to just 12 points as Davis defended him the majority of the game.
With the addition of Davis to the roster, the Flames currently have one scholarship available for next year’s roster.
