Hopewell's Downing commits to Davidson

Hopewell High basketball player Jordan Downing, a 6-5 senior, has committed to Davidson, Titans coach Eric Davis said.

Downing chose the Wildcats over Air Force, Appalachian State, Northwestern, St. Bonaventure, Winthrop and Wright State. Downing was one of four Hopewell starters to average 13 points per game last season when the Titans finished 29-1 and reached the N.C. 4A state semifinals.

"He didn't take any visits anywhere," Davis said. "He decided Davidson was where he wanted to go. He'd been up there on some unofficial visits and he told me (Saturday) that basically for the past year, that's where he wanted to go to school."

In the times of overhyped, spoiled, and often troubled HS basketball recruits Hopewell and its families should be proud of what they are accomplishing. Winning Basketball with outstanding young men, i.e. Curry to Harvard and Downing to Davidson. Extremely impressive and heart-warming.Congrats and keep it up!

Jordan,
Congrats! I am very proud of all your accomplishments. You have worked extremely hard both in the classroom and on the court and Davidson is getting a fine young man. I'm thrilled that I'll be able to watch you play for 4 more years right down the street.

I agree with this blogger, an association football was used to shoot baskets. Whenever a person got the ball in the basket, his team would gain a point. Whichever team got the most points won the game. 2j3j
