2017-2018 Dayton Flyers

Well.....this will be an interesting thread and off season. Fire away!!!!

I have no idea what to expect for this season given Archie taking the IU job. If I had to bet money, I would expect a very very down year...like way down. But most of this will hinge on the new hire and if he can retain almost all of these recruits. Given that no one has left yet; here's where Dayton is at next year:

Coach: Anthony Grant

Darrell Davis
Josh Cunningham
Sam Miller
Ryan Mikesell
Xeyrius Williams
Trey Landers
Kostas Antetokounmpo
John Crosby

Jordan Davis 6'5 SG Irmo, SC -- was the class 5A player of the year in SC.
Jordan Pierce 6'11" C - New Jersey
Matej Svoboda 6'7 SG - Czech Republic
Jalen Crutcher 6'3" PG -Memphis, TN
Obadiah Toppin 6'9" SF/PF - Ossinging, NY

I'm 90% certain all these guys will be back. Landers, who knows...he didn't even play here but he's from here too. Kostas probably doesn't leave as I believe he would have to sit out another year or request a waiver. Of course, Europe is always an option for him but I think he has NBA on the mind.

Now, here's the interesting part....FIVE recruits. What do they do. Some of them on twitter were really distraught, especially Wright who is a must get at this point. He was named Mr. Basketball in MN yesterday. We will see how this plays out in the next few days.

EDIT: Wright has committed to Colorado. Carter is up in the air.

EDIT: Still 3 spots left with the Crosby departure.

EDIT: Mikesell surgery (out for season?)

EDIT: Added Jalen Crutcher Freshman PG

EDIT: John Crosby back on the roster

EDIT: Added Obadiah Toppin to the roster

Hoping whoever the new coach is, that he can keep the recruits (at least some) and have you guys fighting for the top again.

Re: 2017-2018 Dayton Flyers

Looking at Indiana's roster, they have one hole and need a PG.
Hope that's not Wright.

The comments are interesting. Syracuse and Georgetown have reached out, and no one gives a shit that he hasn't been released from his LOI. P5 pigs.

Absolutely sickening. Is there no honor left?

Same thing is happening right now with Lavar Batts a VCU commit. He has not asked out and everybody is nosing around.

Help me understand all the short hand. Does that mean Wright has a coach (Ostrom?) who IU may hire and that would help the kid go to that school (if he's let out of his LOI from Dayton?)?

Re: 2017-2018 Dayton Flyers

If you keep reading that guy's account, the gist is if Ostrom is promoted to the Dayton HC job, Wright will stay with Dayton. If not, all bets are off and most likely Wright goes elsewhere but not necessarily where Ostrom ends up.

Most of the other recruits are taking a wait and see approach. Wright seems to be tied directly to Ostrom.

The kid should go to IU if that is where he wants to go. 3 years from now he'll just grad transfer to IU.

A couple things have to happen first in this scenario. One he would have to graduate in three years, and I can't recall this happening to a UD Basketball player. Two, the P5 only steals the players that we developed into really good players as grad transfers.

If it was my decision, the only way this kid ever attends IU is to sit out a year. I know this shit goes on all the time, but how many recruits actually tell a half assed wanna be talking head that he has a spot on Archie's' team at IU if he wants it. I know the kid is "only 18" but its not too early to learn a life lesson.

Re: 2017-2018 Dayton Flyers

Sounds like Naz Carter might be staying with Dayton. Nothing official but his mom is active on twitter and she seems pretty happy with the hire. Said Grant called hthem last night and they had a good talk. She then welcomed him to Dayton on twitter. Good sign I hope.
