GHSA rules GAC transfer Davis eligible at Buford

Nearly three months after his transfer to Buford, talented junior basketball player A.J. Davis has been ruled eligible by the Georgia High School Association.

Davis, who helped Greater Atlanta Christian to the Class AA state title last season, withdrew from GAC in October and enrolled at Buford, where his twin sister Kaela is a junior on the girls team. Kaela previously attended GAC in middle school and went to Norcross as a freshman before transferring to Buford.

Buford officials got word Tuesday from the GHSA that Davis, a 6-foot-7, 185-pounder, was eligible to play varsity sports for the Wolves, and the school then informed GAC of the ruling.

Davis averaged 12.5 points and 6.8 rebounds as a sophomore for GAC's state championship team, scoring 13 points and adding seven rebounds, four blocked shots and three assists in a state finals win over Buford.

Davis, the son of former NBA player Antonio Davis, is expected to make his varsity basketball debut with Buford either Friday night against his former school, GAC, or Saturday in a showcase game at North Gwinnett against Whitefield Academy.
