FAU star Johnell Davis to enter portal, test draft waters

Florida Atlantic star guard Johnell Davis announced his plan to leave the Boca Raton school — one way or another.

Davis entered the transfer portal late Tuesday night and said he’ll also declare for the NBA draft. Davis declared for the draft a year ago but didn’t hire an agent and ultimately returned to the Owls.

If Davis passes on the draft again this year, he’ll be one of the most coveted players in the portal.

Davis, the co-Player of the Year this season in the American Athletic Conference, averaged 18.2 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this season and shot a career-best 41.4 percent from the 3-point line.

Davis is the fourth FAU player to enter the portal since coach Dusty May left to take the Michigan job.

Davis, a key player in FAU’s Final Four run in 2023-23, has averages of 11.2 points and 4.9 rebounds in 128 career games (53 starts) at FAU.

The Owls were eliminated by Northwestern in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
