R.J. Davis to take first official visit to Georgetown
By ADAM ZAGORIAR.J. Davis, the 6-foot point guard from White Plains (N.Y.) Archbishop Stepinac and the NY Rens AAU program, will take his first official visit to Georgetown June 26-27, his father told ZAGSBLOG.
Davis will also take an unofficial visit to Marquette this Wednesday (June 19) and then one to Pittsburgh in the next few weeks, Robert Davis said. He will also visit UCLA later this summer.
The Georgetown and Marquette visits were first reported by Andrew Slater.
Georgetown, Pittsburgh, UCLA, Indiana, Marquette, Kansas and Florida are among the leading contenders for Davis.
“R.J.’s a floor general for us, true point guard who can really score it,” Stepinac coach Pat Massaroni said last fall. “He averaged 20 and 7 for us as a sophomore. He’s a 1,000-point scorer. He just has the ability to see the floor and get guys involved, and has the abilty to make big shots. He’s clutch at the free throw line. He’s just a winner.”
