Davion Hannah is the No. 43 player in the 2025 On3 Industry Ranking. The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 13.7 points on Nike’s EYBL 16u Circuit this summer. Hannah, who transferred this summer to Chandler (AZ) AZ Compass, added 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game with his Mac Irvin team.

“I’m an energetic player that can shoot the ball,” Hannah told On3. “I like the midrange, but when I’m getting to the basket, that’s my strength. I’ve noticed that as I’ve developed confidence in my jump shot, I’ve seen my game get better overall. I watch a lot of Jayson Tatum, he amazes me the most. The way he uses his dribbles to open up space and get to his shots.”

On3 caught up with four-star Davion Hannah after a recent live viewing to talk about his recruitment. 

Hannah talks recruiting

“I talk with Wisconsin and Marquette a lot,” Hannah said. “I hear a lot from Cincinnati, Auburn, and Arizona State, too”

Wisconsin: “That’s a school that is on me hard and is at all my games. If I’m playing, even if I don’t tell them I’m playing, they’ll still be there. They move the ball well, and they’re aggressive on both ends of the floor. I play that way too.”

Marquette: “Their whole staff, they’re funny people. Shaka (Smart) is from out there by where my school is. Every time I talk with them, it’s great vibes. Like we have serious conversations, but it’s a lot of laughs too. They work over there. One thing that he preaches is defense, and I love defense.”

Arizona State: “They’re on me hard and showing support. Every time I played during a live period, I saw them there. They’re cool people, I enjoy talking with them.”

Cincinnati: “They’re on me pretty hard. One of their coaches, Drew Adams, coached my brother at Bradley. So he is talking to my whole family. We are comfortable with him.”

Auburn: “They like how versatile I am; they’ve seen me guard the one through the four, and that is what they like. We are developing a good relationship, it has been growing since the June call day.”

“I’ve talked with Kentucky some,” Hannah said. “I think Michigan State might be close. My dad is talking with Ohio State, he is from Ohio.”

Hannah’s bloodlines

Davion Hannah’s brother, Darius Hannah, plays basketball at Bradley. The 6-foot-8 forward is entering his senior season. He averaged 5.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 12 starts last season. 

“My brother has been a big help. He’s been in my ear, letting me know that college ball is more aggressive and so much faster. If you really want to succeed in college, you have to put in that work when no one else is. He always tells me I got to fall in love with that weight room.”

At the end of the day…

“I’m going to look at the location,” Hannah said. “But, I’m willing to go anywhere. I’m really going to look at who wants me.

“Honesty is real big with me. I’m going to look at my relationship with the coach; is he someone who builds and keeps relationships? I’ll look at the living situation, really the overall environment around the campus.

“I like to play with a fast pace. I feel like that is when I am at my best.”
