Isaiah Davis of Minnehaha Academy is trending as a Hot College Prospect! Isaiah Davis is a 6’4″ Guard/Wing in the class of 2021 that plays for Minnehaha Academy, a private school located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Davis plays with the #1 ESPN College prospect and future pro in 7’1″ Chet Holmgren. He is another College ready product from a talent rich high School.
Davis proved he could play at a high level after playing in one of the biggest games of the year this past weekend against nationally ranked #4 IMG Academy. IMG has future pro’s and some of the best College prospects such as ESPN #1 ranked point guard in the class of 2022, 6’2″ Jaden Bradley and Michigan commit, 6’10” and super athletic #8 ESPN ranked Moussa Diabate.
Davis was one of the bright spots for Minnehaha Academy as he is an under the radar player you don’t often hear much about on a team full of super stars. Davis stepped up big for Minnehaha who finished the game with a season and team high of 21 points and was instrumental in helping Minnehaha stay close in the early part of the first half. Davis made some big plays. He would take guys his size or bigger to the box and made strong finishes and showed that he could step out on the floor to knock down threes and take defenders off the dribble. He has a College ready build and College Coaches are taking notice of his game! He played spring/summer AAU with Grassroots Sizzle.
