EWING, Mo. (WGEM) -- As talented of a player as Brandon Davie is, it took a bit of time before college coaches knocked on the door of the Highland sharp shooter.
And when Culver-Stockton's Jack Schrader expressed interest it didn't very long for Davie to commit.
The Cougars senior guard signed his national letter of intent to join the Wildcats on Thursday afternoon.
Admittedly, Davie says Culver-Stockton became even more enticing after the team's extended stay at the NAIA Tournament and adds it's full speed ahead from here on out.
"It feels good now. All the hard work is paying off and that's what really feels great," Davie said.
"Having some of your college paid for your athletic talent, and all the hard work that you put into that."
Schrader says Davie stood out for a couple of reasons.
"One, he's a winner. I think he led the team a lot father than what people thought they would go this year," Schrader noted.
"He has quickness to get some penetration and he can knock down three's, and that's pretty much our game, penetration and kick."
Davie plans to work on his strength and defense heading into his freshman season.
He capped off his final season at Highland by helping lead the team to a district title.
