TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) -  The FAMU DRS Baby Rattler boys basketball team fell short of their team goals this year, but there were a lot of talented athletes on that squad. On Thursday, two of those talented hoop stars signed letters of intent to ball at the next level.

Javion Johnson and Jaylyn Davis both signed with Waldorf University, an NAIA school in Forest City, Iowa. Johnson, a guard, averaged close to eight points and four rebounds per game this season, while Davis, a forward, grabbed seven boards and averaged just over three points per game for the Baby Rattlers.

Iowa is a long was from Tallahassee, but both agree they are excited to become Warriors and they're ready to take this journey together.

"He's family, it's all family, so when we get up there, we're going to connect, we're going to take over," said Davis. "Honestly, it's a true blessing, like I said, it's a day to remember, and I can never forget this day."

"It shouldn't be so bad since I have somebody that I know for a long time with me, so we should be good to go," added Johnson. "Most people don't make it out of Tallahassee to play basketball on the next level, so I'm just very excited and ready to go to Waldorf and make the bet out of it."

Davis said he wants to major in advertising, while Johnson wants to study sport management.
