I have heard from a couple sources that Tricia Binford and her Montana State Bobcat coaching staff are recruiting Jazmine Davis of Valley Christian high school in San Jose, California. The 5-8 Davis is projected by most to be play the point guard spot in college but with her shooting ability I could also see her playing some at the shooting guard spot for the Bobcats, if that is where she ends up.
While I do not have Davis’s complete statistics for last year, I believe she averaged 14 points and 4 assists a game while shooting close to 50% from the both 2 and 3 point range. In the stats I saw she actually was shooting slightly better from three point range than 2 point range. She was named West Catholic Athletic League honorable mention as a sophomore and second team as a junior. Look for her stats to really take off this year as she becomes the focus of Valley Christian’s offense.
She is a true point guard but has out standing range and can score the ball from a variety of ways.
ESPN / GurlzHoops has given her a 92 rating and identified her as the 25th rated 2011 point guard in the nation. Unfortunately they did not have any type of evaluation on her.
Ell-Sean Smith of NorCalPreps.com (part of the Rivals.com network) gave Davis the following brief evaluation.
Jazmine Davis has been compared to another Davis, Baron of NBA fame, with her solid build, good hops, and ability to distribute the basketball. A Top 10 prospect in the region, according to NCP, the Valley Christian guard is also a serious finisher, as a result, is attracting plenty of attention from college coaches.
Davis is getting a lot of attention from a wide variety of Division 1 through out the nation. She is a very good student and that has really boosted her recruitment. Currently Cal Poly, Dartmouth, Fresno State, Idaho, Liberty, Montana State, Nebraska, New Mexico State, Princeton, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Washington are showing an interest in her talents. Rivals.com is reporting that Idaho, Liberty, Montana State and Washington have all offered her.
