LAFAYETTE — The Cajuns basketball program picked up a pair of commitments for its 2015 recruiting class Wednesday, including one hometown product.
Lafayette High School point guard Corey Davis didn’t feel the need to draw out his recruitment process.
“I already knew where my heart was, it was just really getting it out of the way and focusing on my senior year schoolwise and basketballwise,” Davis said.
Davis is just verbally committed to the Cajuns, but he said he intends to sign a binding letter of intent on Nov. 12 — the earliest possible day — to focus on his remaining time in high school.
The Cajuns have been on the 6-foot-2 guard’s trail for some time but didn’t offer him a scholarship until last week. For Davis, there wasn’t much of a chance of him spurning his hometown team.
“The team is already talented. And with me added on, it’s going to be fun,” Davis said. “I loved the home feeling we have here, and I found there was no better choice for me.”
The Cajuns also received a verbal pledge from Itawamba (Mississippi) Community College guard Tyrone Wooten on Wednesday. Wooten also plans to sign with the Cajuns during the early signing period, according to a Scout.com report.
The 6-foot-4 Wooten is a wing player who can fill up the stat sheet, averaging better than 13 points per game in his freshman season at Itawumba. Wooten is a native of Memphis, Tennessee.
