5-star recruit Trayce Jackson-Davis commits to Hoosiers

Center Grove forward Trayce Jackson-Davis, a consensus five-star player and one of the top recruits in Indiana in the 2019 class, committed to play for the Hoosiers on Thursday via Twitter.

The commitment gives Indiana five-star recruits in back-to-back classes following the commitment of Romeo Langford in the 2018 class.

Jackson-Davis, the son of former Indiana Pacers big man Dale Davis, is the No. 16 recruit in the country and the No. 2 recruit in Indiana, per 24/7 Sports. His Center Grove team will host Cathedral on Friday in a matchup of the two Indiana commits from the 2019 class, Jackson-Davis and Cathedral guard Armaan Franklin. Both have reportedly signed with the Hoosiers already.

Jackson-Davis and his Indy Heat AAU team played in Spiece Fieldhouse at the Gym Rats Basketball Association National Championship this summer. At the tournament, he was the center of attention on his team and excelled at hitting teammates with passes out of the post and finishing strong around the rim. He also played impressive defense on the perimeter and got several steals that led to breakaway dunks.

The Indiana commit is an AAU teammate of former North Side forward and Fort Wayne native Keion Brooks, who is playing his senior season at La Lumiere prep school. Brooks, the No. 3 recruit in Indiana and No. 22 nationally per 24/7, is also considering the Hoosiers in his recruiting.

"We complement each other really well," Jackson-Davis said of himself and Brooks at the AAU Tournament.

Jackson-Davis chose the Hoosiers over Michigan State and UCLA, which were also in his Top 3.
