AMMON, ID — BYU received a big commitment on Wednesday with 4-star prospect Isaac Davis announcing his intent to sign with the Cougars over programs such as Oklahoma, UNLV, Washington State and Virginia Commonwealth among several others.
Davis is a 6-foot-7, 230 pound power forward who will graduate in 2024. Davis’ play and abilities have drawn comparisons with former BYU standout Yoeli Childs due to his size, strength and versatility, although his coach draws comparison with NBA star Draymond Green.
Matt Jolley, who has coached Davis since the fourth grade, describes Davis as someone who can play effectively in both the post and out on the perimeter, who should develop into a good 3-point shooter. Jolley also cites Davis as a superior ball distributor for a player of his size who can defend the 1-5 positions on the hardwood.
Davis plays for Hillcrest High School and finished the 2022-23 season averaging 17.6 points per game, 9.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists according to Maxpreps.
Davis is a 4-star prospect according to the 24/7 Sports Network and is ranked the No. 16 power forward nationally and the No. 94 overall prospect by the same service. Both ESPN and Rivals also rates him a 4-star prospect with Rivals ranking him as its No. 81 prospect nationally.
Davis is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and does not hold definite mission plans at the time of his commitment.
