CHATTANOOGA — The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball team added another piece to the puzzle after signing JUCO guard/forward Demetrius Davis from Lawson State Community College (AL), head coach Dan Earl and the program announced Thursday morning.

Davis comes to Scenic City as a junior and will have two more years of eligibility. He is immediately eligible for the next 2022-23 season.

“We are thrilled to have Demetrius join our Chattanooga team. He is a long-time, athletic and talented basketball player who will bring a full game to the Mocs program,” Head Coach Earl said.

“He is extremely versatile and will be able to defend several positions. Demetrius is only scratching the surface of the service player he can be and has a very bright future.”
