Davonte Davis net worth is near the six-figure mark. The Razorbacks basketball player, also called Devo, has previously used his platform to raise awareness and help the community.
A Jacksonville native, Davonte played high school basketball at Jacksonville High School, averaging 21 points, eight assists, and ten rebounds in his senior season.
In 2020, the 6’4 athlete enrolled at the University of Arkansas and has been a success story on the basketball court. But recently, Davis announced he was stepping away from the basketball program for the second straight season.
Last season, Davis had left the program for two days before returning. This year, Davis hasn’t been able to replicate his form but also has had discipline issues. Davis was disciplined off the court actions and erratic physical behavior on the court.
Davis stepping away from the program was announced 15 minutes before the Razorbacks’ home game against No.6 Kentucky. Eric Musselman didn’t say whether Davonte would return later in the season.
Davonte Davis Net Worth 2024: How Much Does He Earn?
Davonte Davis net worth is at the six-figure mark in 2024. Recently, the website On3 valued the collegiate basketball player’s NIL value at $87k.
Davis’ first NIL deal was back in 2021, the same year the NIL deal was legalized. At the time, Davis was a sophomore at Arkansas and landed a sponsorship deal with JJ’s Grill.
That same week, Davis announced another NIL deal with car dealership Gwatney Chevrolet in Jacksonville. With Davonte earning NIL deals left, right, and center, the athlete also managed to shine on the basketball court.
He was named to the SEC Winter Academic Honor Roll and played 37 games. Davis averaged 8.3 points and was second on the team in assists with 102. Early in 2022, the youngster signed an NIL deal with Bobby Bones’ apparel company Can’t See Apparel.
When it comes to choosing his NIL deals, the basketball player has been careful as he chose organizations that can make a positive impact on society.
The Can’t See Apparel supports causes such as the American Red Cross Society, the Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Project Medishare, and a handful of other organizations.
Davonte also appeared in an advert for Conagra Brands with his Razorback teammates. Last year, Davonte was seen promoting the drink company Drink Treo.
He also partnered with First Arkansas Bank & Trust and was part of their Readers Program, helping students improve their literacy skills.
Devo Davis Giving Back To The Community
Last year, with his NIL deal with Dick’s Sporting Goods, Devo gave back to his hometown, Jacksonville.
The talented athlete bought every member of the current Jacksonville basketball team a $175 gift card. Davis said, “I’m glad they were able to come out here and enjoy this time with me. And I can give to them and them be able to experience this because when I was in high school, I wasn’t able to get what they’re getting now.
Helping the community and raising awareness isn’t a new act of the basketball player. Previously, he and his teammates signed with AAC Network to raise awareness and support for the non-profit organization Children’s Safety Center.
The team later organized a fundraiser campaign called “Off The Court.” Devo has tried helping the campaign as much as he can as the basketball player has a substantial social media presence.
Last year, Devo visited the Arkansas Children’s Hospital and raised awareness for Prader-Willi Syndrome. It is a rare genetic disorder that results in physical, mental, and behavioral problems.
