Ar'Mond Davis Transferring

Ar'Mond Davis is moving on. He announced today on Twitter that he is transferring. The 6'6, 193 lb Junior averaged 6 points and 13.8 minutes per game in his lone season in Tuscaloosa. Ar'Mond will have one year of eligibility remaining. I wish him the best of luck.

A top 10 JC recruit out of the College of Southern Idaho, Ar'Mond did not develop into the shooter we hoped he would be (26.7% from 3), but he did work his way into the rotation after some early struggles, and played a huge role in arguably the team's biggest win of the year in the 4-OT game at South Carolina, scoring a career high 19 points. Hailing from Tacoma, Washington, it's possible Ar'Mond wanted to move somewhere closer to home. I have not seen an official statement yet from Avery. Other Bama players on Twitter seemed surprised by the move so I don't think this was expected by the coaching staff. Nevertheless, there are now two available scholarships for next season. No idea if the coaching staff is recruiting anyone to fill those two spots, but I would guess that Avery will seek to fill those two spots, perhaps with transfers. The number of players transferring is once again very high so there is no shortage of experienced college basketball players out there who fill a variety of needs.
