After taking an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt in early April, Davis Nwankwo has given a commitment to the Commodores Head Coach Kevin Stallings. It originally looked like Nwankwo was bound to play for Lute Olson and the Arizona Wildcats, but after spending a weekend on the Vanderbilt campus; he was set on playing for the Commodores.
"Yes, Davis has committed to Vanderbilt,” Georgetown Prep head coach Dwayne Bryant told RivalsHoops.com. “He took an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt in April 7 and absolutely loved everything about the school. He spent a lot of time with Matt Freije, which was a great experience for Davis.
“Coach Stallings and Coach Jackson did an outstanding job with their recruitment of Davis,” he added. “During his unofficial visit to Vanderbilt, Davis had a similar feeling to that of Arizona. The team is extremely tight and they’re a great group of guys.”
Vanderbilt could not be happier with Nwankwo’s decision. The coaching staff feels that Davis will come in and be an immediate impact type player from the very beginning.
“I think the coaching staff feels that Davis can be the type of player that comes in and plays 20-25 minutes a game,” Coach Bryant said. “A lot of that depends on his development, but if he progresses like he can, he has a chance to see a lot of minutes during his freshman year.”
Rivals.com ranks Nwankwo No. 81 on the Rivals150 list and the 19th best power forward in the class of 2004.
