Player breakdown

Jordan Davis is a player that drastically improved his game over the past year or so. Davis is primarily known for his defensive prowess. The senior to be can really hassle offensive playmakers, and has the size at 6-foot-4, and the quickness, to defend multiple positions on the floor. Jordan’s biggest gains came on the offensive end though. He has shown the ability to shoot from behind the arc well, and he should make for a nice complimentary three point shooter at the next level.

Many people thought that Jordan was destined to be a football player at the next level, as Wisconsin and many other Big Ten teams were scouting him as a wide receiver due to this advanced athleticism. Davis finally earned a basketball offer from Wisconsin however, after a strong spring and summer on the AAU circuit. Davis will enter Wisconsin as the lowest ranked scholarship prospect in the 2020 class, but he has the tools and potential to make a nice impact for the Badgers during his career.
