Prospect Spotlight: Miles Davis (2018)


Posted On: 01/9/18 11:00 AM

Miles Davis, a class of 2018 guard at Landon School, was a standout at last weekend’s IAC/MAC Challenge. He scored 21 points in their 1 point loss to Flint Hill, showcasing nice touch from the mid range areas along with a high motor. We can’t recall Davis being on the team prior to this contest, and that’s cause he didn’t make varsity as a junior. He’s clearly improved a lot, and it seems like he is committed to perfecting his craft.

“I play hard. Play pretty unselfishly, try to get my teammates a look before myself. Im also a streaky shooter and player and play with a lot of passion,” Davis said of his overall game. “I wouldn’t just say there’s one aspect I need to work on, I need to work on everything really. But defense and passing are the biggest areas alongside perimeter shooting.”

Aside from his abilities on the court, we appreciate the fact that Davis is committed to his work in the classroom. He says he has close to a 3.4 GPA. We also like the intangibles that Davis demonstrates while on the court.

 “I support my teammates a lot, just picking them up after a bad play or anything of that nature,” he stated. “I worked a lot on my mindset, just being more confident and taking my shot. Also I worked on my mid range game, finishing and athleticism a lot.”

What can the 6’3 swingman bring to a program at the next level?

“I can bring a hard work ethic, determination, selflessness and just try to do anything to make sure the team and make better.”
