Josiah Davis had a successful season at Tennessee Tech this past year. The former West Virginia and Teays Valley Christian guard reopened his recruitment this spring, entering the transfer portal. On Tuesday, Davis committed to Niagara, moving to the MAAC.

Davis (6-foot-3) upped his numbers at Tennessee Tech, averaging 12.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 31 games. Davis went from 1.5 minutes per game at WVU to 30.6 minutes for the Golden Eagles. Davis shot 50% from the field while being limited from the perimeter. The Ontario native had five games over 20 points vs. SIU-Edwardsville, Little Rock, Southeast Missouri State, Lindenwood and UT-Martin. Davis also recorded 13 points at Tennessee in the first game of the season.

Davis left West Virginia last March following his freshman season. Davis appeared in six games for the Mountaineers during his lone season. Davis has two years of eligibility remaining.

Davis graduated high school as a three-star prospect, helping TVCS to an NACA National Championship during his senior season.
