Lufkin High School big man JaDarius Davis earned a reputation last year as a beast in the paint, someone who made it a priority to dominate inside.
So imagine the slight surprise when the physical 6-foot-7, 215-pound forward said his summer workout routine included dribbling - lots of dribbling.
Davis averaged roughly 19 points and nine rebounds last season at Lufkin, combining raw strength (he bench presses almost 300 pounds) and nice inside touch with a bit of a mean streak to make the physical player that has attracted college recruiters. But as Davis' senior season approaches, he hopes to show recruiters - as well as opposing teams - that his game is a little more complex.
"I'm trying to be more of a three [small forward]," Davis said. "I was inside and played a lot of center, but I think my natural position is the three. I can play inside, but I'm also a good spot-up shooter."
Davis has received interest from several schools, including Colorado and Oklahoma. Texas A&M and Oklahoma State have extended scholarship offers.
