Kaela Davis signs with Georgia Tech Basketball

The nation's No. 2 recruit, Kaela Davis, signed her National Letter of Intent to play for the Georgia Tech basketball team on Thursday.


For the third consecutive year, the Georgia Tech women's basketball team has what's considered a top-20 recruiting class. This year, it's headlined by the nation's No. 2 prospect, Kaela Davis, a 6'1 guard from Buford, Ga. Davis played for prep powerhouse Norcross as a freshman before transferring to Buford, where she led her team to two consecutive state title games as a sophomore and junior, winning in 2011.

Davis certainly has a basketball pedigree, being the daughter of longtime NBA veteran Antonio Davis, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She was named a 2012-2013 preseason All-American by USA Today Sports.

In addition to Davis, the Yellow Jackets added 6-foot guard Donnaizha Fountain, the top-ranked player in Massachusetts, and 6-foot wing Gabrielle Holston from Birmingham, Ala.

After falling in the Sweet 16 to eventual undefeated national champion Baylor, the Yellow Jackets are clearly set to reload on talent and remain a contender in the ACC, up there with Duke, Maryland and North Carolina.
