Jon Davis: Charlotte 49ers sign first Mark Price player


The Charlotte 49ers and new coach Mark Price have their first new addition to the squad. Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports that player is Jon Davis, the 6’3” guard who attended Hargrave Military Academy last year. He averaged fourteen points and seven assists last season. All indications are that Davis is coming in to man the point guard position.

Davis was a former DePaul commit before his year at Hargrave. He is the first evidence that Mark Price’s name and reputation have influence with college recruits. Davis wants to be a high level point guard and he chose to play for a former high level point guard.

This is also the first news the 49ers have gotten of an addition. Several of the current players have sought transfers away from Charlotte. Mike Thorne is set to graduate and is taking his final year of eligibility to Illinois, taking away a big piece down low for the 49ers.

  • Torin Dorn, the Conference USA freshman of the Year and the leading scorer from last year’s squad, has already announced his intent to transfer. Incoming freshman Ebuka Izundu has asked for his release. Freshman shooting guard Keyshawn Woods is also leaving as is power forward Willie Clayton. This was all reported by David Scott of the Observer around April 10th.

    In some ways this is normal. A coach establishes ties to his players and when that coach leaves, those players feel little loyalty to the program and the new coach. That is abetted by the fact that the new coach will most likely start to replace current players with his guys, so the flood of transfers out could soon be replaced by a flood of transfers in.

    However this must diminish expectations for Price’s first season as coach. Price’s team will likely be undermanned, since any transfers cannot play until next season. Also it is yet to be seen if there will be any transfers TO Charlotte.
