CBS college basketball reporter Jeff Goodman has tweeted that erstwhile Wolfpacker Josh Davis has committed to play his senior season at San Diego State for veteran coach Steve Fisher.
Davis, a fan favorite from Raleigh's Athens Drive High, was an unheralded recruit out of high school who blossomed at Tulane after leaving the Pack program. The 6-8, 215-pounder averaged 2.6 points and 1.7 rebounds a game as a freshman reserve but exploded for a double-double average (17.6 points and 10.7 rebounds) as junior for the Green Wave. Davis led the NCAA last season in free throw attempts and offensive rebounds and was among Conference USA leaders in just about every statistical category imaginable.
WPN hoped that Davis would return home to finish his career for an N.C. State team in desperate need of veteran bigs, and hopes were further raised when Davis recently seemed to dispel rumors that he had narrowed his choices to either SDSU or Gonzaga. Alas, those rumors proved to be true.
As a graduate transfer, Davis will be eligible to play immediately for the Aztecs.
