Hoop Commit for 2012

Senior guard Jazmine Davis from NJ has verballed.


It cannot be argued that Monmouth Regional senior guard Jazmine Davis has played her high school career in relative anonymity inside the Shore Conference, regarded by many as New Jersey’s premier girls basketball hotbed. Despite finishing in the top 15 at the Shore in scoring as a junior and approaching her 1,000th point this winter, Davis has watched quietly as other players received more fanfare, signed National Letters of Intent to Division I schools and received their just due.


Her own recruiting began to pick up after a strong summer playing for the All New Jersey Elite AAU program yielded scholarship offers from Bethune-Cookman and the University of Albany.


Looking to get her recruitment out of the way sooner than later, Davis and her parents took the drive over the weekend to see Albany. Noting the comfort level she gained with the coaching staff and the opportunity to play right away, Davis offered a nonbinding verbal commitment to head coach Katie Abrahamson-Henderson and the up-and-coming Great Danes on Tuesday.


“Coach and I had a great conversation over the phone, she made me feel comfortable from the start and we decided to take a visit,” Davis said. “Meeting her was great and the campus was beautiful so it made my decision easier for sure.”


Davis is the fifth player from the Shore Conference Class of 2012 to verbal to a Division I school, joining the St. Rose duo of Kasey Chambers (Monmouth) and Samantha Clark (Fordham), Manalapan’s Jasmine McCall and Manasquan’s Michaela Mabrey (Notre Dame). A sixth senior, Lafayette-bound and Blair Academy senior Annette Snow is a former Freehold Township guard and Manalapan resident.


Davis, who averaged 15.8 points per game as a junior at Monmouth Regional, will be heading to an Albany program that, behind Abrahamson-Henderson, is on the rise after finishing 16-13 overall and 9-7 in the America East in 2010-11. The 16 wins was the program’s highest win total since 1996-97, while the nine conference wins is the most since 2003.


“They’re just starting to win. They’re already good and I really believe they can become a power,” Davis said. “With me, hopefully I can help them to become better and maybe they can accomplish even more in my time there.”
