La Crosse Central's Johnny Davis moves the ball upcourt against Onalaska.

The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball program secured commitments from two of the state’s high-profile players.

La Crosse Central seniors-to-be Johnny and Jordan Davis gave the Badgers a non-binding, oral commitment on Saturday night, according to Red Raiders coach Todd Fergot.

The La Crosse Tribune reported that Johnny Davis received a scholarship offer from UW about 18 months ago, and Jordan Davis was offered by Badgers coach Greg Gard on June 5.

Johnny Davis was a unanimous first-team All-State selection by The Associated Press this past season after averaging 23 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists. Jordan Davis was a WBCA All-State honorable mention pick after averaging 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 2.2 assists.

The brothers are in Madison this weekend playing with Central teammates at a Badgers team camp.

The Badgers also have pursued Glendale Nicolet standout Jalen Johnson for the 2020-21 class. A a former Sun Prairie athlete, Johnson has the Badgers in his final four along with Duke, Kentucky and Arizona.
