Springfield’s Danny Davis signs with Wisconsin


Springfield High School senior Danny Davis signed a binding national letter of intent Wednesday to play football at Wisconsin.

A four-star recruit, Davis chose to pursue football at the next level after also weighing many basketball offers. He did not verbally commit to a program in either football or basketball, which fueled speculation on which sport he would pursue.

An elusive 6-3, 190 pounds, Davis was a four-year starter in football and basketball and was among the most versatile football players in the GWOC.
