Five-star NCAA Basketball prospect JD Davison has recently narrowed his potential options down to six teams. Which of them is the best fit for the point guard?

There are two pure point guards ranked as consensus five-star prospects in the NCAA Basketball 2021 recruiting class. One of them is Kennedy Chandler, who recently committed to the Tennessee Volunteers. The other still on board is JD Davison, ranked just one spot behind Chandler according to 247sportsComposite (Chandler 11, Davison 12) overall rankings.

With Chandler off the board, even more attention is going to be put on Davison’s recruitment. A month ago, the 6’3 offensive juggernaut had a list of 10 contenders he was choosing from. Now, it has shrunk to just six;

There were five programs that were cut from the group: Florida State, Georgia, Arkansas, Florida, and Louisville. The biggest surprise that came from this was the inclusion of the Michigan Wolverines, who have seemingly come out of nowhere to now be a contender for Davison.

Barring another unexpected surprise, one of these teams will get the services of a player who averaged over 30 ppg last season as a junior in high school. Davison can easily be a “one and done” player if things go right for him in college, which makes picking the right program all the more important.

There are plenty of pros and cons for Davison to consider with each one of these NCAA Basketball programs. But who stands out among the bunch in terms of fit? Here’s a closer look at each potential landing spot.
