Nebraska picked up its second 2020 commit on Saturday afternoon as Lawrence Central (Indiana) small forward D’Andre Davis chose the Huskers during his official visit to Lincoln.
Davis is a 6-foot-5, 170-pound swingman out of Indianapolis with terrific length. As a sophomore for Lawrence Central, Davis averaged 13.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals while leading the Bears to a 16-7 record.

Davis has a smooth shooting stroke and knocked down 35.6 percent of his 3-pointers on just over three attempts per game. He also shot 80.6 percent from the free-throw line on just under four attempts per game. He’s a solid ball-handler for wing with the ability to create his own shot and finish around the rim as well as make plays for others.
Davis chose the Huskers over offers from Southern Illinois, Cleveland State, Bradley, Miami (Ohio), Indiana State, Evansville, Ball State and IUPUI.
Davis joined Lincoln North Star guard Donovan Williams in Nebraska’s 2020 class.

Assistant coach Michael Lewis is the primary recruiter for both of the 2020 verbal commits. Davis is Nebraska’s first recruit out of Indiana since Eshaunte Jones who played for Nebraska from 2008 to 2011. Lewis is an Indiana native who played for the Hoosiers and ended his career as the school’s all-time assists leader.
Jacob is in his third year with Hail Varsity covering Husker athletics. He has also written extensively for SB Nation’s Bright Side of the Sun and The Creightonian. His love of basketball can best be described as an obsession and if you need to find him, he’s probably in a gym somewhere watching, coaching or playing hoops.
