Milwaukee is a breeding ground for nationwide talent. I believe Davion Hannah falls into that category. He’s making noise at the high school level as a freshman at Milwaukee Academy of Science, and a focal point on his summer team at KL Power 5.
As a third option in a very entertaining program, the freshman guard completes a three-headed monster aside from two top players in their respective classes, Tayshawn Bridges and Nasir Beamon. Hannah is averaging 12 points per game and shoots at a 56% clip in a span of 16 games.
The bright-eyed 2025 prospect has a high ceiling. His understanding of the game makes him a consistent factor in winning basketball. At 6’5, he is capable of snatching rebounds inside with the bigs; his court vision and ball handle make him a coast-to-coast threat. Additionally, in the half-court, he spaces the floor with a silky stroke from range.

I caught up with Davion Hannah to talk about the things that have led to his success on the court. Here’s what he had to say:
Who’s your favorite player?
“My favorite basketball player is LeBron James. What he’s done and doing on and off the court is influential and amazing.”
Which player do you study to get better, if any?
“I watch and study Jayson Tatum’s game because; he usually has a height advantage over a lot of his defenders which allows him to shoot the ball over the top of them, and I feel like I also have the same advantage so I study how he plays and uses his height to his advantage.”
What’s your favorite pre-game meal?
“My favorite meal to eat before a game is waffles no matter what time of day it is and wash it down with water following bananas for the cramps.”
What are you most grateful for?
“I am most grateful for the people I have in my circle because I am surrounded with positive people but people that are going to tell you what I need to hear, not what I want. Also, I am grateful to have a supportive family on both mom and dad’s side.”
Why do you play basketball?
“I play basketball because I enjoy it. I come from a “Basketball family”. You could say it’s in my DNA.”
