Former Seton Hall commit Dashawn Davis having Zooms with Seton Hall, St. John’s
By ADAM ZAGORIA
Former Seton Hall commit Dashawn Davis is being pursued by both Seton Hall and St. John’s.
The 6-foot-3 guard had a Zoom call with coach Kevin Willard and his staff as well as Our Savior Lutheran coach Peter Wehye on Thursday, and will now have one with coach Mike Anderson and St. John’s on Monday.
‘They want me to come run the show,” he said after the Seton Hall call. “They said they are gonna let me be myself here.”
Davis averaged 21.3 points, 6.1 assists and 4.1 rebounds last season at Trinity Valley (TX) Community College. He would be eligible for Division 1 in 2021.
The Bronx native initially signed with Seton Hall in December 2018, along with current Pirates forward Tyrese Samuel.
“Dashawn is a talented guard who will add versatility, toughness and a great defensive mindset to our program,” Willard said then. “He can play multiple positions and is equally good off the ball as he is on the ball. He is one of the better players coming out of New York City, he fits the gritty style we play here at Seton Hall and will make an impact for us.”
