Cincinnati is getting a packaged deal, as both Gabe and Mason Madsen have committed to the Bearcats.

The Madsen twins hail from Rochester, Minn., where they were a backcourt tandem at Mayo Senior High School. They will look to take that connection to the next level.

The decision came at the conclusion of a weekend visit to Cincinnati. Gabe, a two-guard, is a three-star prospect, according to 247 Sports. Meanwhile, Mason, a point guard, is a two-star recruit.

The twins were both offered by the Xavier Musketeers in July. Gabe received an offer first, then Mason got one two weeks later. The Marquette Golden Eagles also offered Gabe in the past, reaching out a couple years earlier. Both of them fielded double-digit offers by the end of their recruitment period.
