Dorian Davis 6’0 150 2022 Highland Springs High School, Richmond VA
Dorian is a natural scorer, a prolific scorer! He has a tight, crafty handle, a range that extends far beyond the three-point line and the ability to drive and finish around bigs thanks to his touch and body control. He’s fundamentally solid and has a great feel. Moves so well off the ball and has a knack for finding soft spots or getting to his kill spots where he catches the ball shot ready and has a ridiculously quick release. He’s a very good shooter and an even better scorer using angles nicely and creativity. Dorian can also employ a quick first step and blow by defenders where he can get to the rim or stop on a dime and nail the pull up jumper.
He’s so shifty, changing speeds and using a low center of gravity to change directions abruptly and is able to get to the rim where he can finish around bigs or hang in the air, switch hands if necessary, absorb contact and score off the glass. Has a great touch and creative finishing ability. Dorian is a score-first guard playing to his strengths but is also a capable playmaker who can handle and distribute the basketball. For such a prolific scorer he is a willing and capable passer. His effort is just as impactful on the defensive end where he is scrappy and active. Dorian defends the dribble effectively demonstrating solid footwork and has a great motor. He is quick laterally and strong enough to engage bigger ball handlers and stifle dribble penetration. Dorian should be an impact player as early as this year for Highland Springs HS and will be the focus of many a defensive scouting report! He’s also a prospect who will carve out a spot among the states better 2022 scorers.
