Entering the summer, there weren't many people outside of the Kansas City metro who knew about David Kravish. But, after a summer of proving his ability with MOKAN Elite, plenty of people and college coaches know about the 6-foot-9 post player.
A product of Lee's Summit (Mo.) North, Kravish is a slender big who can run the floor like a much smaller player. Capable of facing up and shooting the jumper or picking apart defenses with his passing, he's also a clever interior scorer with bounce around the rim.
"Every coach that I talk to loves how I can run up and down the floor," Kravish told Rivals.com. "I know that I can hit the jumper and I'm comfortable on the floor. When I catch the ball I'm not shaking because I'm nervous or looking get rid of it like it's a hot potato. I think I've got a good feel for the game."
After fielding interest from schools all over the country, Kravish has settled in on a list that includes Creighton (unofficial visit this weekend), Iowa (official 9/2), California (offical 9/24), Colorado (10/2) and Wichita State (visit to be set).
Given that his list includes both high level mid major and high major programs, Kravish is more concerned about finding the right fit.
"It doesn't really matter and I never really think about it or compare it that way," said Kravish of considering mid and high major programs. "It's more about the opportunity that's there. Education is a big part of it so if a school has a good pre-med program that's a big plus.
"Every school that I'm interested, they all fit my skill set pretty well," said the three-star forward. "I've researched these schools so I'm comfortable with the coaches and I think it's a good list."
Rather than listing a favorite, Kravish says that all of the programs he's looking at are on even ground. He expects his visit to have a major impact on his decision and he expects that he'll sign early rather than risk missing out on a scholarship from a school he likes.
"I'm hoping to make an early decision," said Kravish. "Those scholarships aren't only being offered to me."
