ESPN 100 guard Daejon Davis announced his commitment to Stanford on Saturday.

Davis, No. 44 in the 2017 class, signed with Washington in November but was released from his letter-of-intent when the Huskies fired head coach Lorenzo Romar. Stanford was one of his original finalists, along with Oregon and Gonzaga.

"It's a special place," Davis told ESPN.

Stanford now has two ESPN 100 prospects in its 2017 class, with Davis joining four-star forward Kezie Okpala (No. 37). Two foreign prospects are also in the fold in Oscar Da Silva (Germany) and Isaac White (Australia).

Davis, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Garfield High School (Washington), averaged 12.8 points and 3.6 rebounds for Seattle Rotary on the Nike EYBL circuit last spring and summer.

He decommitted from Washington on two separate occasions, also reopening his recruitment last April after originally committing to the Huskies in August 2015.

Four of the five members of the Huskies' top-five recruiting class have been released from their letters-of-intent. Michael Porter Jr., the No. 1 senior in the country, followed his father to Missouri. ESPN 100 point guard Blake Harris has set visits to Missouri, Michigan State, Connecticut and Rutgers, while three-star forward Mamoudou Diarra has heard from a long list of schools.

ESPN 100 shooting guard Jaylen Nowell remains committed, as of now, to Washington and new head coach Mike Hopkins.
