    Dayton Flyers Basketball 2020-2021

    It's been a slow offseason in Dayton, but they landed a fairly big fish today in USC transfer Elijah Weaver.

    https://www.daytondailynews.com/spor...bMSByHi5DqusJ/

    He's a 6'6" combo guard and was the No. 45 recruit in the country coming out of high school. Seems to have some offensive limitations, but he fits the Anthony Grant prototype, long and high character.

    Still two open scholarships for the upcoming season, followed by four graduating seniors after the 20-21 season. Grant and company have their work cut out for them wrt bringing in talent.

    He was a Central Florida kid. Do you know if he is sitting a year or expecting to get a waiver?

    Sounds like he'll apply, but I get the impression there's not a lot of optimism he'll receive a waiver. Sit one, play two seems to be the consensus, and that makes sense given the senior- and guard-heavy roster next year.

    Dayton landed its first recruit of the 2021 class. It's Malachi Smith, Scoochie's younger brother. Looks to have a skillset similar to his brother; seems bright and team-oriented.

    The 2021 class will be exceedingly important for the program, looking to replace the core of the recent 29-2 team (aside from Toppin, who will be a lottery pick in October).

    As an 83 grad, I was very sorry to see the year end the way it did. Thought we had a chance to win it all as we were much more than just Toppin!
