The No. 47 ranked prospect in the Rivals150 Bryan Davis waited it out until the last day of the early signing period. Despite the wait, Texas A&M got the prize recruit of their strong six man class with the signature of Davis, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound power forward from Grand Prairie (Texas) High School.
"Bryan will do great at Texas A&M," said Davis' AAU coach Mitch Malone of the Texas Blue Chips AAU club. "He is probably the best big man they have signed in 10 or 12 years. Bryan plays with a lot of energy and has a chance to come in and start for them."
Davis, who visited Texas, also was considering Connecticut, Georgia Tech and Kansas.
Working to become more of a scorer, especially in the high post, Davis specializes in defending and rebounding and has all the blue collar intangibles.
"Bryan is a beautiful kid," said Malone. "He is very coachable and will come in and work hard for Coach Gillispie."
Davis, who averaged 16 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks per game as a junior, joins Jerrod Johnson, Joseph Fulce, Derrick Roland, Donald Sloan and Bryan Beasley as Texas A&M signees.
Bryan Davis scouting report:
Athletic and competitive, Davis is the kind of guy you want behind you on defense. Excels at rebounding and blocking shots, especially in transition and as a help defender. Offensive game is steadily improving. He has a very good upside.
