About Anthony Davis
Anthony Davis, Jr. (born March 11, 1993), is an American college basketball player at the University of Kentucky. He is playing his freshman season for the 2011–12 Kentucky Wildcats. He plays power forward/center. He is a 2012 NCAA Consensus First team All-American (unanimous). He has already established Southeastern Conference single-season blocked shots records and been named the 2012 National Player of the Year by various organizations, earning the Oscar Robertson Trophy, the Adolph Rupp Trophy and Sporting News Men's College Basketball Player of the Year.
As a high school basketball player for Chicago's Perspectives Charter School, he was unknown nationally and locally after three seasons of play. A "late bloomer", he emerged into prominence in April 2010 (the spring of his junior year) after a growth spurt and exposure on an AAU traveling team made him a blue chip prospect. Within months, he was the top-rated player in the national class of 2011 by Scout.com and ESPN.com and the number two player by Rivals.com. He was a high school All-American by every major selector (ESPN, Jordan, McDonald's, Parade, USA Today) and earned Co-MVP honors at the 2011 Jordan Brand Classic.
