Tennessee State has picked up 2 new commitments for the 2013-14 season. The Tennessean is reporting Jamontae Davis and Jamonte Graham have both committed to TSU.
Davis, a 6-foot-8 forward, missed most of his junior season at Hillsboro High School after sustaining injuries in an auto accident. Graham is a 6-1 senior point guard at Father Ryan’s, and averaged over 18 points, four rebounds and four assists last season. Both schools are in the Nashville area. Graham and Davis both played on Carlton Batttle’s travel team in Nashville as well.
Murray State was one five schools, including Tennessee State, that had offered Davis a scholarship.
“I wanted to stay close to my family,” Davis told the Tennessean. “That was my main choice. And the coaches are so energetic. TSU is like a big family.”
“We’ve been playing against each other and with each other since we were in junior pro, and now with both of us committing to TSU it will be really good for us,” Graham told the Tennessean. “It will be good for me to have a guy that I’m already familiar with. Playing with him will be like old times.”
