Wisconsin Basketball: Jordan Davis Enters the Transfer Portal

Jordan Davis has entered his name into the transfer portal

According to a report from Verbal Commits, Wisconsin basketball guard Jordan Davis has entered the transfer portal.

The news comes shortly after Wisconsin’s loss in the NIT semifinals to North Texas after a brutal second half. Davis saw 11 minutes of action in the loss without scoring a point.

The 2022-23 season was a rocky one for Davis. The LaCrosse native was a starter early in the season before losing his spot to budding true freshman Connor Essegian. After that, he was a good option off the bench who could get a few baskets per game while hitting the boards hard.

Davis averaged 5.1 points and 3.5 rebounds per game this season while shooting nearly 40% from the floor. He averaged 21 minutes per game, a considerable jump from his 6.5 minutes in 2022. Davis carved out a role for himself as a high-intensity player who played with grit.

The 6-foot-4 200-pound guard will look for a better option to reach his full potential. Davis’ decision to transfer isn’t too shocking, considering he lost a starting spot and saw a dip in production as the season ended. Although things didn’t work out in Madison, a change of scenery could be what he needs.

Davis wasn’t a highly recruited player out of high school, but after putting some solid tape out there in his time at UW, he should garner some attention in the portal.
