Re: 2018-2019 Dayton Flyers

As CollegeHoops stated, Dayton got a commit last night from "Frankie" Policelli....6'8" SF/PF from NY.

http://www.zagsblog.com/2018/04/23/f...lli-to-dayton/

Policelli also held offers from Texas Tech and Cincinnati, and took visits last fall to George Washington and Stony Brook. He chose Dayton after a recent official visit to the Atlantic 10 Conference school.

“I chose Dayton because I felt comfortable with the coaching staff and the players,” he told ZAGSBLOG. “I feel like I can fit in really good.”

I'm sure the fact that he could play almost immediately was enticing also.

Watson transferred from Michigan. He will sit this coming season, and then have two years to play with UD.

Re: 2018-2019 Dayton Flyers

Dayton got a verbal commit. Michigan sophomore Ibi Watson, a 6'5" guard/wing backup with limited playing time, is transferring out. Will sit 1 and play 2. The young man is from Pickerington OH.

Just saw Scoop Russell beat me to it

This is one Iím pretty excited about. Watson chose Michigan over IU out of high school but had been offered by Dayton and Miller at the time. Not sure why heís transferring but he is an elite athlete. Thatís not fan speak either. I have no clue how good he is at the game but at 6í5 with a 44.5 inch vertical and the offers he had out of hs itís hard to not be excited.

Re: 2018-2019 Dayton Flyers

Dayton received a commitment the other day from Chattanooga transfer Rodney Chatman:

https://twitter.com/RodneyC_/status/993602236818345984.

Has to sit out one year and play 2. So Watson and Chatman will sit out this year and then both have 2 years left.

Dayton is very very guard/wing heavy at this point with almost no true size. Remains to be seen if this is Grant's plan in the A10 or what.

Chatman looks solid....one of only 32 players last year in the country to average 13+ points, 4+ assists, 4+ rebounds, and 1+ steal per game. Davidson also had a player do it....Jon Axel.

Re: 2018-2019 Dayton Flyers

Dayton also gave out a "walk on" scholarship to a kid from a local Dayton HS. He won't count towards the scholly limit. His scholarship is mostly academic I believe.

As I understand it, he is a walk-on who is on an academic scholarship. I believe in NCAA parlance he was not a "recruited player" at the D1 level.Perhaps the best player on a not very good hs team who didn't play AAU ball, and thus wasn't seen by coaches and recruiting analysts.

Re: 2018-2019 Dayton Flyers

Like College Hoops said ... he received a Flyers Promise Scholar scholarship. It is for under-represented students. He had interest from mainly Div III and I think a couple of Div II schools, but said he was attending UD even if he couldn’t walk on.

The NCAA has some mind numbing rules defining a recruited athlete. If he was a “recruited athlete” the academic aid would be counted as part of the team’s 13 athletic scholarships

Re: 2018-2019 Dayton Flyers

Assistant Coach James Kane is leaving Dayton to join Steve Prohm's staff at Iowa State. Kane had previously spent four years on Prohm's staff at Murray State. Dayton fans waiting to see if Grant promotes from within, or goes outside the program for a replacement.

Re: 2018-2019 Dayton Flyers

Barring very a late addition(s), Dayton will go into the season with only 11 players on scholarship. Two of those, Watson and Chatman are transfers, and not eligible this season. Of the nine remaining players, Toppin is a redshirt freshman, Matos a juco, and Cohill and Policelli are true freshman making it four without D1 experience. Add to that Mikesel is returning after missing a season due to surgery on both hips, and what he'll be able to bring is unknown. Cunningham is a warrior, and if healthy, a likely all-conference player. Landers, Crutcher and Davis should be solid contributors, but the team will lack height/girth down low, any kind of experience off the bench, and depth. I'm a bit surprised Grant and staff werenot able to bring in a grad transfer or two for this season.

Re: 2018-2019 Dayton Flyers

I'm not sure what this year is going to look like but next year looks very promising. Three players sitting out that will be available next year in Chatman, Watson and this big man. Dayton only loses Cunningham and the core of the team will be Juniors and Seniors.

Of note, Jordy's younger brother was also on the recruiting visit this past weekend.
