Former men’s basketball forward Jonathan Davis chose to stay in D.C. – transferring to American, according to his Twitter.

Davis will join an Eagles’ squad that went 10-20 last season in the Patriot League, and will be led by first-year head coach Mike Brennan, a former Georgetown assistant.

Davis was granted his transfer from the GW program earlier this March, though some speculated that he may return to the Colonials after not landing anywhere immediately.

Head coach Mike Lonergan said the decision came mostly out of Davis’ desire to have a bigger role in a program.

“With Jonathan, going into your third year, if you were ever going to go somewhere and play for them, you really had to make that move,” Lonergan said in March. “We’re going to be sad to lose him as a friend and a teammate for our players.”

Over his two years as a Colonial, Davis struggled to find his way into the rotation, grabbing minutes in just 23 games, while starting none. He leaves GW averaging o.4 points a game on 44.4 percent shooting and 0.3 rebounds per game.
