Although it took longer than most would’ve expected, Chris Mack and his staff have finally landed a verbal commitment from an original member of the 2020 recruiting class.
Evan Daniels of 247Sports was the first to report that D’Andre Davis, a four-star, 6-foot-5, swing-man from Indianapolis has committed to Louisville. The decision comes following his official visit this weekend.
Davis later confirmed the news via his Twitter account.

247Sports has Davis rated as a four star prospect and he’s ranked as the 95th best player in the 2020 class and the second best player in the state of Indiana.
Davis is Louisville’s first commitment in the 2020 class via the standard high school path. Jay Scrubb, the top ranked junior college prospect in the country is also currently committed to the Cards and will join Louisville in 2020 unless he decides to enter the NBA Draft in June.
The relationship between Davis and the Louisville staff developed quickly. He had been committed to Nebraska since October of last year, but decided to reopen his recruitment last weekend. Within 24-hours the Louisville staff got involved offering him a scholarship and scheduling his official visit.
Purdue and Xavier were also quick to get involved with Davis. He had visits scheduled to both schools over the next couple of weeks, but I would assume those visits will be cancelled.<
