Ben Davis was a force on and off the floor at Central Hinds Academy.
He led the Cougars to their first district championship in 16 years in his senior season.
"It means the world to me honestly. Everybody supported me since I was a kid. I'm going to go to William Penn University hungry. I get a spot so I can shine," said Davis.
"Dealing with the different cultures and programs he's been in, today is really a big step for him. I hope he does what he learned and continues on," said Ben Davis, Sr.
Davis averaged 21 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks per game as a senior.
He'll look to be a big fish in a small pond at William Penn. The university located in southern Iowa was the NAIA Division-II runner up this season.
