There are many that consider Nate Davis to be the best high school basketball player in South Dakota right now.  If that is something you believe, or don't believe, there is no arguing that he is an outstanding talent. Today PHD checks on his junior year video to see what makes him the player he is. 


  • The first thing you notice in his video is how well Nate moves.  If a defense isn't in the right position this is a guy that is going to burst into space before defenders can react routinely.  That was seen immediately when he cut behind his man for a catch and assist as well as an attacking score.
  • Range, man does Nate seem to have some range.  Defenders have a hard enough time being motivated to defend out to the arc much less a step outside of the arc so if Nate routinely can hit that with a good percentage he's a weapon at the next level in his early years.
  • When Davis is coming down hill at a defender they seem frozen.  He has a little hesitation fake that freezes guys and then he either blows around them at top speed
