Husker’s Davis out for the 2018-19 season with an Achilles injury

October 11, 2018

LINCOLN — Nebraska freshman Karrington Davis will be out for the 2018-19 season with an Achilles injury.

Davis is a 6-foot-6, three-star small forward from St. Louis. After arriving on campus this summer, Davis began rehabbing an injured hip. He was able to practice only a few times at full speed before injuring his Achilles last week. Davis will have surgery later this week with an anticipated rehab of six to eight months.

At Chaminade Prep in St. Louis, Davis won a large-school Missouri state title as a sophomore in 2016 and was a state semifinalist as a junior in 2017. He averaged 19 points a game in 2017.

Davis transferred to Florida prep powerhouse Montverde Academy for his senior year. A hip injury suffered in spring 2017 — a torn labrum and bone impingement — was surgically repaired in July 2017 and kept him out a good chunk of his final year of high school.

“There are a lot of reasons to be excited that Karrington is joining the Husker program,” Miles said in April. “He’s played for programs which are used to success at a high level and understands what it takes to compete at that level. I’ve been fortunate to watch his development over the years, and I love Karrington’s skill level, shooting and playmaking abilities. He really knows how to play the game.”

Davis committed to Nebraska over Saint Louis, Middle Tennessee and Kansas State.
