Many of his teammates spoke about how you never knew Brian was the best player because he never carrier himself in that light. I believe for Brian the sky is the limit for his future. Knowing the work ethic he has I am sure he will go to college and get his degree. I am sure he will work tirelessly on his game to get better and push to make it professionally. Personally if he commits to the craft on and off the court he has to the tools to become an outstanding college basketball player.”

“Working hard everyday, staying dedicated to my craft, and being motivated everyday by Coach Cam,” Davis, Jr. said. “The one thing I will miss is the people, my family and the entire community, this is always going to be home for me.”
