Scouting Report: Rob-roy []
As a faithful follower of Big 10 hoops I watched Davis play 10 times. While certainly explosive at times, I can't see him going through with heading to the NBA. He will be a solid pro, but right now he is like many college freshmen, learning the game. Whoever is selling him on turning pro is giving him questionable advice.

He can dunk and rise with anyone while possesing and NBA build that figures to only get stronger. His range is only consistent out to 12 feet, although he will launch from as far as the NBA line. He reminds me of a more athletic Larry Hughes who can create his own shot but can't hit it unless it's a dunk or fast break basket. His defense will be solid.

Anyone who has seen Davis play can see he has NBA potential. But he is still very raw and unlikely to have any chance to develop if he makes an NBA roster after just one year of college ball. He is a projected SG without the jumper, or an undersized SF who can slash without the requisite size (yet). If he keeps working on his jumper he will make the leap to lottery player (in a few years) if he makes the wise decision to bail out of the 1998 NBA Draft.
