TAMU gets big in-state pledge

Tyler davis 140804 2
RANKINGS: Class of 2014 - 2015 - 2016
For the past few weeks, there had been a lot of talk that top-35 center Tyler Davis was growing tired of the recruiting process. That talk proved to be true when Davis ended his recruitment Friday morning.
A 6-foot-10 back to the basket player from Plano (Texas) West, Davis ended his recruitment by tweeting that he has committed to play for Billy Kennedy and the Texas A&M Aggies.
"I am very excited and blessed to say that I am officially committed to the University of Texas A&M," tweeted Davis Friday morning.
Likely to move up a bit from his current ranking of No. 35 in the 2015 Rivals150 when the rankings get updated next Tuesday, Davis is literally and figuratively a huge addition for the Aggies.
As good a back to the basket player as there is in the class of 2015, Davis controls the blocks by using size, position and excellent touch. He scores over either shoulder, has strong hands and has good touch to 12 feet. Most importantly, he is a big who is committed to playing like a big and he stays in the paint.
By selecting Texas A&M, Davis joins freshmen Alex Robinson and Avery Johnson Jr. with whom he played with on the Texas Titans during the summer. It should be noted that another primary target for A&M is another Titan -- and high school teammate of Davis -- small forward D.J. Hogg. Both Hogg and Davis have said in the past that they wouldn't mind playing together in college.
Potentially in the mix as well is four-star swingman Mickey Mitchell. A teammate of Davis and Hogg with the Titans and at Plano West, Mitchell decommitted from Ohio State last night and A&M has been brought up along with SMU, Texas Tech and Baylor as a potential destination.
Davis is the first member of the Aggies 2015 recruiting class.
