Dayton secured the commitment of 2018 four-star guard Dwayne Cohill of Holy Name (OH) and Ohio Basketball Club on Monday, he told Elevate Hoops.


Although the 6-foot-4 prospect had two officials lined up (Ohio State 9/23 and Virginia Tech 10/20), he chose the Flyers over programs such as: Pittsburgh, UNLV, Texas, West Virginia, Vanderbilt, Penn State, and Clemson.


“It was a great visit,” said Cohill of his recent official visit (9/8-9). “It was everything I could ask for. Their message to me was simple; you come here and the ball is in your hand and that they need guards and that I was their main top priority.”


The Ohio native spoke about his official visit to Dayton and what impressed him about the school.


“It had a family feel,” said Cohill. “It’s not too big and not too small, it’s just right. It has everything you need right around campus.”


Cohill becomes the first commit in the 2018 class for the Flyers.
