Davenport scored a huge commitment on Thursday from St Joseph's 2014 power forward Jon Johnson. The senior is a physical presence down low that rebounds and has upside offensively.
We caught up with Johnson to see why they were his choice.
"Of anything I've learned in this brief period of high school athletics the two most important things are to be in a place that wants you and be in an environment you can grow academically, athletically, and socially. It is clear they want me and I feel it is without a doubt a place I could reach my long awaited potential."
Davenport assistant Craig Heatherly did a tremendous job building a relationship with Johnson.
"Coach Heatherly is a cool guy. I've had the pleasure of having several conversations with him. He speaks with a lot passion about the game, the school, and the team. That's definitely important."
Johnson ran with Illinois Old School on the circuit this past spring and summer.
