The St. John’s Red Storm conducted another virtual meeting with 2021 JUCO recruit Dashawn Davis on Monday morning.

The St. John’s basketball program continues to heavily pursue Dashawn Davis after conducting a virtual meeting with the 6-foot-3 guard on Monday.

Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog first reported the news of the Zoom call.

The Red Storm just recently offered the Bronx native back on June 16 after his impressive freshmen season for Trinity Valley Community College (Tex.).

Davis averaged 21.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game on 50.8-percent shooting from the floor and 36-percent from three-point range in junior college play last season.

The recruit gave his thoughts on the program and the style of play of Mike Anderson’s team to Zagoria, “They fit the way I play. They want to get up and down, play scrappy, and most importantly, they let their guys be free.”

Once upon a time, Dashawn Davis was set to go to Seton Hall before he decommitted and was released from his National Letter of Intent from the Pirates after reports surfaced regarding his academic eligibility.

Davis previously attended Our Savior Lutheran High School (OSL) in the Bronx, where current incoming freshmen Posh Alexander and Dylan Wusu starred.

The Class of 2021 prospect will have two years of eligibility left at whichever program he chooses.

Davis is also generating interest from programs like DePaul and Alabama, among others, so the Red Storm will have some competition for him.

However, the situation seems to be progressing quickly as Davis announced shortly after the Zoom call that he’s getting set to release his top schools in which he will decide from.

It’s almost a guarantee that the Red Storm will be included on his list.

St. John’s currently doesn’t have a commitment in the Class of 2021 yet, but Mike Anderson and his staff have been very active on the recruiting trail and it looks as if it will begin to pay its dividends as the Red Storm is closing in on a handful of commitments.
