Explorers land recruit from Ohio

La Salle just got its first commitment for the Class of 2012. Jermaine Davis is listed at 6-9, 260 pounds. He is from Garfield Heights (Ohio) High, the same school that produced Carl "Tay'' Jones, a junior at Saint Joseph's and the leading scorer in the Big 5 last season.

Explorers land recruit from Ohio

La Salle just got its first commitment for the Class of 2012. Jermaine Davis is listed at 6-9, 260 pounds. He is from Garfield Heights (Ohio) High, the same school that produced Carl "Tay'' Jones, a junior at Saint Joseph's and the leading scorer in the Big 5 last season.

Davis was mostly being recruiting by Mid-American Conference and Horizon League schools, but chose to come east to play for John Giannini at 20th and Olney. Garfield Heights had one of the best teams in Ohio last year. The star guard on that team, Trey Lewis, is now a freshman at Penn State so the school's players keep leaking over the border.
