Johnell Davis draws interest from Kentucky Wildcats Basketball – A Sea Of Blue

Mark Pope is making moves in the transfer portal, and he reportedly has Kentucky in the mix for arguably the best player.

According to JJ Metz from FAU Owl’s Nest, Florida Atlantic guard Johnell Davis is considering Kentucky. Trilly Donovan has since confirmed on Discord that Kentucky is in the mix.

Davis, a four-year player with one year of eligibility remaining, was instrumental in helping the Owls make their magical run to the Final Four in 2023. This season saw the 6-foot-4, 203-pound guard in averaged 13.8 points on 48.6% shooting. (35.7% from deep), 5.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.5 steals per game.

Last season, Davis averaged 18.2 points on 48.3% shooting (41.7% on 3s), 6.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game. He is CBS Sports’ highest-ranked transfer in this cycle.

It initially looked like Davis would follow former FAU head coach Dusty May to Michigan. However, Travis Branham of 247 Sports said that is no longer the case.

The Wildcats landed Drexel center Amari Williams and are pushing for Utah State forward Great Osobor. However, it’s unclear exactly which backcourt options they are heavily involved with. They have reached out to a multitude of players, but in the public eye, there is no one they appear to be at or near the top with.

Davis would certainly come out of left field, as there were no previous reports of interest in him, although we can be sure that Mark Pope found a way to contact him since he has contacted just about every notable transfer .
