When I am recruiting a young man to play at Davidson, I look at so much more than talent and athleticism.

How does he act when he comes out of the game?

Does he walk to the bench or run?

Does he mope or high five his teammates

When he is in the game, does he want to take big shots?

Does he dive on the floor for loose balls?

How is his body language when being coached?

Is he an eye roller?

Is he a shoulder shrugger?

These things tell me whether or not he has the character and coachability to play college basketball.
