The recruiting history of Rasheen Davis, who many Pitt fans think should be considered as a possible replacement for departed Barry Rohrssen.
Myles Davis- A kid Pitt recruited and considered one of the best high school shooters in the country. Cousin of Brandin Knight. Ineligible during his first season. Averaged 5.3 ppg this season.
Chris Thomas- Went to four different high schools, but still didn't graduate so he went to a community college to get his degree. Originally committed to Xavier by Davis, but then switched to Manhattan when Davis did. But he never played there because Manhattan decided despite his lofty talent they didn't want to keep him after he got arrested for driving without a license and then going to jail after being tested for marijuana (he also was a terror on the court with his technical fouls and verbal outbursts). Ended up at Marshall with Tom Herrion, who told him he would give him one chance but that he'll be hard on him. For last season at least it seemed to work as he averaged 12.7 ppg and has done well at the school.
Rich Williams- Other offers from Duquesne, Canisius, Kent State, St. Bonaventure, and St. Peters. Averaged 4.4 ppg as a freshman.
Carlton Allen- Manhattan was his only offer. He averaged 0.3 ppg as a freshman.
Tyler Wilson- Other offers were Canisius, Marist, Eastern Illinois, and UT-Arlington. Averaged 2.1 ppg as a freshman.
Samson Usilo- Nigerian from Brooklyn has offers from Canisius, Hofstra, Niagara, Quinnipiac, St. Bonaventure, and St. Peters.
Samson Akilo- Fellow Nigerian, teammate, and best friend of Usilo. He had no other offers.
Calvin Crawford- Going to prep school for a year. Had offers from Canisius, Quinnipiac, LIU-Brooklyn, and Binghampton.
