Davis High on Wisconsin

Hanging out with a coaching staff he felt was down to earth and easy to talk to, Onsted (MI) junior center Austin Davis now views Wisconsin as one of his favorite schools.

At 6-9, 200 pounds, Onsted (MI) junior center Austin Davis skies above most of his competition and he stood out this weekend as he took an unofficial visit to Wisconsin.

“It was an awesome visit,” Davis told BadgerNation. “We were able to tour a new center before the game and that was state of the art. This was my first time attending a football game at Camp Randall and that was a very cool experience.”

Getting a chance to tour the Kohl Center and learn more about the Wisconsin basketball program, Davis felt comfortable talking to all the members of the Badgers coaching staff.

“They seemed really down to earth and easy to talk to,” Davis said. “We also were able to see the Kohl Center and learn more about Wisconsin basketball. I really think that my style of play would fit well within the Wisconsin program. I also liked how the coaches really made sure that we knew that they are very good at developing players. The campus was amazing and very clean. The people in Wisconsin were very nice as well. It was a really fun day and I enjoyed it.”

The three-star center also got to spend some quality time with the Coach Bo Ryan, who was impressed by his personality and his success.

“Coach Ryan compared me to one of his former players discussed how having good people in his program is important to him, and I agreed,” said Davis. “He has a great sense of humor. I am very interested in Wisconsin after our visit. I really think that I could develop into a great player there. If they offered, that would be amazing. That would show me that my hard work is starting to pay off. It has been a dream of mine forever to play Big Ten basketball and that would be an excellent place to do it.”

Davis has emerged as a rising star in the Midwest, so it is no shocker to the amount of attention he is receiving.

“We are still trying to figure out what our plans are for future visits,” said Davis. “I have my ACT next weekend, so we don’t have anything then. I have been hearing from Northwestern, Michigan, Stanford, Notre Dame, Iowa, Indiana, Harvard, Davidson, George Washington, Cornell, Michigan State, Central Michigan and Toledo.”
