COMMITMENT ALERT: Larry Davis, 6'3 (SG) Christ the King, NYC

Bobby Gonzalez added another important piece of his future puzzle for the Seton Hall Pirates as former NC St signee Larry Davis decided that playing closer to home in college was the right fit for him after Herb Sendek left the Wolfpack for Arizona State: State Recruit Doesn't Wait to Alter Plans (News-Record).

Last June the Larry Davis recruiting story was short and sweet. Davis had lined up visits with North Carolina St, Pittsburgh and Villanova, but after one visit to Raleigh, NC, the recruitment was over and Davis, a 6'3 shooting guard from Christ the King High School in NYC, was a member of the Wolfpack.

However, after NC St coach Herb Sendek decided to leave NC St for Arizona St, Davis began to get second thoughts. With Sidney Lowe in line for the NC St job after the NBA playoffs, Davis decided not to wait again, and this time, after visits to Indiana and Seton Hall, Davis has announced he will play for Bobby Gonzalez at Seton Hall in the Big East.

Davis is an athletic guard that can shoot from beyond the arc and score with a solid mid-range game. According to, Davis was a 2nd team All-CHSAA pick, along with future SHU teammate Kashif Pratt. Davis averaged over 13 PPG during his senior, but his high school career was cut short due to a suspension in the playoffs for a verball altercation that he and family members got into with a referee after a loss. That incident aside, Davis is not considered to be a 'problem' player, but a good teammate that will do a variety of things, including playing unselfish and tough on the defensive side, to help teams win.

Currently, we have the Pirates with 12 players on scholarship. At this point, adding a big man, which is much easier said than done at this stage, would be the priority, but a long-shot to happen. They should have at least five scholarships available for 2007 (six if Mani Messy does not take a medical redshirt for 2005-2006) and getting big men and a strong wing prospect will be the immediate priorities for Bobby Gonzalez. It will be an exciting recruiting period this summer and fall for Pirate fans, and we will continue to monitor the events.
