    KANSAS CITY — Four-star wing BJ Davis-Ray plans on taking his official visits in the fall after Peach Jam, and he’s eyeing trips to Kansas and LSU, he told

    Davis-Ray, the 6-foot-7, 190-pound wing from Duncanville (TX) and the Houston Hoops Nike EYBL AAU program, has already taken unofficials to Arkansas and Kansas. But in the fall?

    “I definitely want to check Kansas and LSU out for sure,” Davis-Ray said. “Just all of them really. I want to visit all of them.”

    Davis-Ray named Kansas, LSU, Alabama, Texas and SMU as the schools currently recruiting him hardest at Session 4. Here is his breakdown of each school:

    Kansas:Bill Self, he’s a great coach. He knows what pros look like and I’m trying to get to that level. Bill Self is just a great coach. I haven’t really talked to him as much. Coach [Jeremy] Case has been the one recruiting me and we have a strong relationship.”

    LSU: “Coach [Matt] McMahon. He’s just high energy. We had a great conversation. He just wants me to get down there, check the campus out.”

    Alabama: “They get up and down, they shoot a lot of threes. I love their playstyle. They have an NBA-type offense. Nate Oats is a great coach. He’s been to the Final Four. He knows what he’s doing.”

    Texas: “Coach Rodney [Terry] he’s a great coach. Great hard-nosed coach. He’s going to push everything up out of you and I like that.”

    SMU: “Coach [Andy] Enfield is a great coach. He really likes me. And I just appreciate them for that. He really believes in me.”

    Davis-Ray describes himself as a two-way player and a shot maker. In Kansas City, he averaged 9.0 points and 3.4 rebounds in 19.4 minutes per contest. The wing is looking for a homey environment when choosing a school.

    “Treating me and my family with the outmost respect and just making us feel home,” Davis-Ray said. “Somewhere I can go where it’s home and I don’t have to change who I am.”

    Davis-Ray is ranked the No. 68 overall prospect in the 2025 class per 247Sports. Both his parents played hoops in high school and his mom ran track at SEMO. Davis-Ray also has two younger siblings, a sister and a brother. The sister is a track star while the brother hopes to follow in Davis-Ray’s footsteps as a hooper.

    The wing said his weird talent is cooking and that’s something he enjoys doing in his freetime.

    “I can make anything out of nothing,” Davis-Ray said.
