Davis to walk-on at USI
Grayville High School’s Jed Davis has been invited to walk-on to the University of Southern Indiana men’s basketball team for 2002-03. Davis is the fifth new face to join the Screaming Eagles and Head Coach Rick Herdes next season.
Davis averaged 14 points and helped lead the Grayville Bisons to a 28-2 record last year. Davis, who was selected to the All-Mid South Conference team the last two seasons, and Grayville were 74-14 over the last three seasons.
Grayville Head Coach Mike Gouch said, “Jed very well maybe the most unselfish and best passer to play at Grayville and has the ability to hit the three at the most critical time. No kid will harder than Jed.”
“Jed has a great worth ethic and is a student athlete who will fit in a role at USI,” said Herdes. “His best ball maybe ahead of him.”
The USI Screaming Eagles were 22-8 last season, posting their 10th straight season with 20 or more victories and have averaged over 25 wins a year since 1993-94.
