Forward Cody McDavis Commits to Northern Colorado

6'8'' Arizona post Cody McDavis has committed to Northern Colorado, according to his twitter feed.

McDavis also had offers to UC Davis, Cal State Northridge, and UC Riverside. He sports a 4.0 GPA, according to Nor Cal Basketball.

According to Inside Runner Sports:

His strengths stretch from having a low post game where he can play with his back to the basket and range that can stretch to 17-18 feet if need be for a jump shot. McDavis is long and athletic. He'll finish strong and above the rim. His length and vertical jump are why he can flush the ball without taking a step, going straight up.

McDavis has only been playing organized ball for three years and nearly averaged a double-double this past season with 13points and 9 boards a game for Pinnacle High School (Phoenix, AZ).

In the landscape of Arizona hoops, few are more respected than founder Anthony Ray who is very high on McDavis, "He's got tremendous upside, great size and very skilled. He just looks the part. Last summer he played on a pretty low profile AAU team so he's been somewhat overlooked, but is probably the best available kid in Arizona, next to TK Edogi (Surprise, AZ). If he were on the East Coast, he'd have 20 offers by now," said Ray.
Northern Colorado needs some depth in the frontcourt to complement what looks to be a strong backcourt, which makes this a great signing. McDavis appears to have a bunch of upside, and has been improving leaps and bounds. He looks like he will have a bright future in the Big Sky, and UNC will benefit greatly from his signing.

Congrats to Coach Hill and the rest of the Bears staff.
