Endless Motor Sports had the privilege of speaking with Brad Davison fresh off his unofficial visit and offer to the University of Michigan. Brad recaps the role UM envisions for him, the interest level in UM, and some of the key factors that will influence his commitment. Head coach John Beilein and UM have intensified the interest in the 6’3 combo-guard in recent weeks, as he provides the versatility to play either guard slot, on-ball or off-ball, which allows UM the flexibility in building a competitive roster. Davison brings competitiveness on the hardwood, perimeter shooting off the catch or off the bounce and adept feel that promotes good ball movement, all while being a steady ball handler who can’t get sped up or down.
EM: Can you walk us through the visit?
BD: My parents and I got to spend a lot of time with Coach Beilein and his staff. The visit went really well: we toured the campus, met with the academic advisors, met with the business program, and we also got to meet the players. We got to meet the new Dean of the Business school who climbed Mount Everest. That was a very cool experience!
EM: In terms of basketball, did Coach Beilein/staff give any indication as to what role they would like you to play at UM?
BD: Coach Beilein says that I would play one of his 2 guard spots and be put in a position to come off ball screens and have the ball in my hands.
EM: Is that a role you’d like and that you’re comfortable in?
BD: Yes, over the years I have learned to adapt to the role that is given to me. I just love to play no matter the position!
EM: What would you rate the visit and what is the interest level for UM at this point?
BD: It was a great visit and I have a very strong interest in Michigan.
EM: Is there a commitment timeline?
BD: Ideally, I am looking to make a decision some time in July before football starts.
EM: What factors are important to you and your family when making your college decision?
BD: The biggest thing for me is the balance between academics and basketball. Basketball wise, the most important things are our relationship with the coaches and how I fit into the system and players that are there.
