Kevin Stallings may be gone, and the jury's out on whether or not Damian Jones and Wade Baldwin IV will return to Vanderbilt next season. Fortunately for the Commodores, Matthew Fisher-Davis will call Memorial Gym home in 2017.
The shooting guard was a longshot to enter the 2016 NBA Draft after an up-and-down sophomore season. He confirmed that he won't be jumping to the pros this summer.

Fisher-Davis was third on the team in scoring with 9.7 points per game this season. He made 44.6 percent of his three-point attempts this winter -- but made only 39 percent of his two pointers. While that two-point shooting mark is low, it's still considerably better than the 17.6 rate he connected on as a freshman.
If Jones and Baldwin depart for the NBA, Fisher-Davis will be counted to lead the Commodores into a new era. He, Luke Kornet, and Jeff Roberson would be the team's elder statesmen and returning starters.
