Fifth Year Transfer Josh Davis Down To Four Schools, Including Illinois

USA TODAY Sports

Davis would be a very nice player to have in Champaign.

Given that we already know Illinois State transfer Jon Ekey made an unofficial visit to Illinois last week, it seems pretty clear that John Groce's plans for those open scholarships next season include fifth-year transfers. Which is a logical plan considering that fifth-year transfers could help what will be a very young team right away, and they won't take up space on the roster for years to come.

Another such transfer that I've mentioned here in recent weeks is Tulane's Josh Davis. Davis has narrowed his list down to four schools, and Illinois is one of them.

This is something that I would really like to see happen. Davis led Tulane in both scoring and rebounding last season, averaging 17.6 points and 10.7 rebounds per game. Now, I don't see him maintaining that kind of pace in the Big Ten, but it's clear that he can score and rebound.

Two things that are always in demand for any team.

Whether or not we end up with Davis we'll have to wait and see, but of all the fifth-year possibilities, he's definitely the one I'd like to see in Champaign the most.
