Josiah Davis enrolls at West Virginia, joins men’s basketball team

Josiah Davis, a West Virginia basketball commit since February 2021, has enrolled at WVU and is eligible for the upcoming season, sources confirmed Friday to MetroNews.

A 6-foot-3 guard from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, Davis played three seasons at Teays Valley Christian in high school.

He will become the 14th member of West Virginia’s roster, including the second freshman, joining 6-7 forward Josiah Harris as newcomers to college basketball in the Mountaineers’ 2022 class.

Davis, a left-hander, becomes the ninth player that was not with the Mountaineers a season ago.

After averaging 19.7 points, 10.1 rebounds and 7.4 assists in his final season at Teays Valley, Davis played for the South last month in the North-South All-Star Basketball Classic in South Charleston.

After being selected as his team’s most valuable player with a 25-point effort, Davis said he planned to be at WVU in the near future and was working to improve his offensive repertoire.

“There’s always room for improvement on everything, but my main thing is pace, shots off the dribble in the mid-range area,” Davis said. “Nowadays, you’re going into 6-foot-11 guys and 7-footers. A lot of what I’m working on with my trainers is getting shots up quick and finding the right, smart shots.”
