Ashley's Bryston Davis signs with Guilford

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Ashley High School forward Bryston Davis signed with Guilford College Monday afternoon.

Davis played a vital part in the Eagles' success this past season, as Ashley went 16-10, and 9-3 in conference play.

Lightly used in his freshman season, Davis worked his way to the varsity roster, eventually making a name for himself as a plus defender, rebounder, and mid-range jump shooter.

"That was tough," Davis said, speaking on his early months at Ashley. "But whenever Coach Guthrie came in and he pulled me up as a sophomore, that's when I really started to put in the work and thought I could play college basketball."

Davis' father was also a college athlete, playing tight end for West Virginia in the late 70s.
