Position: Power Forward
Club Team: Michigan Storm
ProspectsNation.com Grade: 4 star
Committed College: Marquette
7/9/14 – Real Deal in the ‘Ville (Nashville, Tenn.) – Brandon Clay
Like Jon said below, Davenport has the versatility to be a matchup problem on both ends of the floor. Her willingness to run the floor in transition and be active separates her from a lot of the prospects playing the forward position in this class. Davenport is at her best in an uptempo sytem that allows her to make plays with her activity and energy.
5/24/14 – USJN Memorial Day Challenge (Toledo, Ohio) – Jonathan Hemingway
Davenport essay on i know my country nigeria played a different position for this Michigan Storm team than she did in the HS season. She played more of a combo forward position where she faced up more. She still rebounded the ball well and scored in the lane effectively. It was a different setting than what I saw previously. Though she wasn’t dominant as she was in December, this is probably more of the position that she will play at the next level. I did not see a jumper and did not see a lot of counter moves off of the bounce right dissertation writing service reviews now. I do think she can be an effective mismatch 4-player who can score in-out.
12/10/13 – Best of Michigan Holiday Classic (Detroit, Mich.) – Jonathan Hemingway
This prospect has a very similar name to the Miami signee and even has a build that resembles the Decatur, Ga. native. With a 31-point effort on Saturday evening versus Chicago Bogan High School, the Michigan native made a push to earn a 4-star ranking. Standing at 6-1 tall, Davenport plays almost exclusively in the paint for her high school team. She seals dissertation writing company very well and has great touch around the rim. She has an athletic build and runs the floor very well. She did not show range on her jumper, but she completed a high percentage of her free throws in this showing.
