Greg Gard is bringing in some reinforcements.

The Wisconsin Badgers announced Thursday that point guard D'Mitrick Trice and forward Aleem Ford have signed national letters of intent, and will join the program next fall.

"Both of these young men have demonstrated a high level of commitment to academics, while performing on the court as well," Gard said in a statement.
