Is Anthony Davis Calpari’s Top Remaining Target of 2011?

Anthony Davis, the current Number 8 Overall ranked player of the Class of 2011, is being recruited heavily by Coach Calipari and the Cats. In fact, Calipari, Coach Payne and Coach Antigua have all three seen Davis play. During the Nike Peach Jam, there wasn’t a second that Anthony Davis played, that a Kentucky coach wasn’t watching.

Over the last year Davis grew from 6-3, to an amazing 6-10, going from Guard to the low post in a matter of months. One of the amazing things about Davis is that he still has the ball skills and outside shooting capability of a guard, but now adds the ability to post a player down low, making him an overall lethal weapon.

He showcased that this whole summer and has raised the recruiting boards, moving from virtually unknown, to a unanimous top-five recruit in the 2011 class.

So unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know who is after him. Yes, our very own John Calipari.

When asked about what he likes about Kentucky, Davis replied “Coach Cal, he is a great coach. In the previous draft, they had five of their players go to the draft. So that’s really an eye-catcher.”

He followed up by saying “and that’s one of my goals, to go to the draft. Not just go to the draft but make it to the league.”

Davis has yet to visit Kentucky but is planning a trip during the upcoming school year. His list has been narrowed to three which includes the Big Blue.

To many other recruiting experts, Davis is heavily favoring Kentucky.
