Huse and Co. did get a bit of good news, as junior college transfer Flavien Davis committed to play for MSU next season. Davis is a 6-foot-5 forward (just like Reid) who averaged 15.2 points and 7.6 boards a game in 30 games for the 23-7 Ravens as a sophomore. he shot 47.3% (166-for-351) from the field and 63% (92-for-146) from the line. Davis added 45 assists and 35 steals.Davis signed with Loyola out of high school, but did not have the grades to make it, so he went the junior college route.
He is a good scorer and rebounder, which he showed both in high school and in junior college. He is not a great three-point shooter, but is solid at getting to the line. MSU lost some depth with the subtraction of Shawn Reid, but if they are able to throw out Davis, Xavier Blount, and Jamie Stewart, they would still be OK there.
Of course, that's what we thought heading into last season. Blount and Stewart will still be question marks heading into this year.
