Davis is 247Sports’ No. 774 player in the class of 2025, No. 37 tight end and No. 12 recruit from the state of Indiana. His 6-foot-4 frame makes him an ideal pass-catching fit in Phil Longo’s air raid offense.

He announced his commitment 10 days after visiting the Badgers during their first big official visit weekend (May 31). He is the program’s fourth player to commit from that weekend and fifth to commit since the start of June.

The tight end is Luke Fickell’s 16th member of a class that ranks comfortably within the nation’s top 15.


Davis is the first tight end to join Wisconsin’s class of 2025; the program landed four-star tight end Grant Stec and three-star tight end Rob Booker during the 2024 cycle

The commitment continues the Badgers’ strong start to the 2025 cycle. Time remains before the end of official visits, but the group is already a strong response after a program-best 2024 class finished within the nation’s top 25 and boasted a blue-chip percentage of 50%.

Wisconsin is sure to continue to add to the class as June continues.
