Eric Davis enjoyed his visit to UK this weekend, but still doesn’t have an offer

Doral Moore may not have made it to campus this weekend, but 2015 4-star guard Eric Davis did. Davis took an unofficial visit to campus this weekend, and although he didn’t pick up an offer from Calipari, his high school coach Greg McMath told the Herald-Leader’s Ben Roberts he thought the visit “went well.” McMath said that the UK staff will visit Davis next month on an in-home visit and they encouraged the guard to come back to Lexington for one of his five official visits.

They’re still actively recruiting him and treating him like a guy that they have offered,” the coach said. “They haven’t treated him any different from anybody else. They’ve been great with him. If a coach wants to come in and do a home visit – and do an official visit with you – that still means a lot. I think the process is moving in the right direction.”

While in Lexington, Davis got to hang out with the team and even play a little pick-up with them, and according to his coach, he felt he held his own. Davis is considered the 8th best shooting guard in the 2015 class by 247 Sports Composite, but he can also play point. UK already has a commitment from shooting guard Charles Matthews and has extended offers to combo guard Malik Newman and shooting guard Antonio Blakeney, so Cal may be waiting to see how things develop on those fronts before extending an offer to Davis, who has Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, NC State, Texas, UCLA, and UNLV on his list. The Cats are the only team who hasn’t offered him yet.

Watch him work:

    watched him play in the pick up game- did ok, sure he was nervous …I think we are looking at better options before offering here.

    That kid is too skinny. If he can’t show up for a visit, move on.

    Hearing Cal prefers Max Venable and Gary Redus.

    The last Detroit guard to wear #1 worked out pretty well for us. I like Davis’ stroke, but he’s probably not an instant impact freshman due to his build. Needs to get stronger.
