- Tom Osborne Citizenship Team (2019)
Freshman Karrington Davis has been a pair of successful teams throughout his school career. As a sophomore, he was a vital cog in helping Chaminade Prep in St. Louis to a state title in Missouri. Last season, he was part of a Montverde (Fla.) Academy team that went 35-0 and won the High School Nationals. One of nine Division I signees on the Montverde roster last season, Davis has the size and ability to potentially thrive in Miles’ guard-oriented offense. Unfortunately, Davis will miss his freshman year after suffering an achilles injury in practice in October of 2018
Davis spent his senior season at national power Montverde Academy (Fla.) playing for Coach Kevin Boyle. The team went 35-0 and won the Geico High School Nationals with a 76-58 win over No. 2 University (Fla.) School and a 71-53 win over No. 3 Findlay (Nev.) Prep in April of 2018. He battled injuries for a good portion of his senior year, but was one of nine Division I signees on the Montverde roster, a group that includes four players in ESPN’s Top-100. The team featured RJ Barrett, the No. 1 player in the class of 2018, and an expected lottery pick in 2019.
Prior to transferring to Montverde for his senior year, he played two seasons of varsity basketball at Chaminade Prep in St Louis for Coach Frank Bennett. In those years, the school went a combined 51-12 with two Class 5 (largest class) state semifinal appearances and a state title in 2016. As a junior, Davis averaged 19 points and six rebounds per game and was a first-team all-state selection by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association. As a sophomore, he came off the bench for Chaminade, which went 27-5 en route to a state title. He was teammates with 2017 NBA first-round draft pick Jason Tatum and Iowa forward Tyler Cook.
Davis played AAU ball for the Bradley Beal Elite in the EYBL in 2017 and also played for the St. Louis Eagles AAU program. He looked at many schools, including Kansas State, St. Louis, Middle Tennessee, Iowa State and Missouri before selecting Nebraska.
Karrington is the son of Kendall and Dionne Davis and was born on Nov 18, 1999, in Joliet, Illinois. He has three younger sisters, including twins Kalynn and Kennedy, and Kabanna Davis has not declared a major at Nebraska.
