Big Picture: Khari Price's Commitment

Khari Price joins Jalen Robinson and Devon Scott to form a solid recruiting class for Dayton. What does his commitment mean for the Flyers? digs deeper.

Khari Price, a 5-11 guard out of Louisiana popped for the Dayton Flyers on Monday afternoon. caught up with him to get his thoughts on the program.

After losing point guard commit Jevon Thomas, UD needed a backup to Kevin Dillard badly.

The pickup of Price means a lot for more than just that reason.

Price, according to sources, is a kid that likes to get up and down and will bring a lot of excitement to the fans at UD Arena.

"They average like 13,000 fans or something per game," Price said. "It's just a great atmosphere. I connected well on my official visit this weekend with Kevin [Dillard] and a lot of the other players. The coaching staff is great, too."

In a basketball-friendly town, Price could be a fun player to watch over the next four years. His pass-first attitude will allow his teammates to see his value.

"I want to come in and be able to provide a backup for Kevin," Price said. "Down the line, though, I'm able to facilitate and find the open man or three-point shooters. I like to throw alley-oops."

Price, who has already qualified, will be signing his letter of intent tomorrow.

Without this pickup, things would've been rather grim for the Flyers next year. After losing Chris Johnson, Josh Parker, and Paul Williams, UD will be relying heavily on Dillard for scoring.

Now Dillard may be able to work harder on his scoring because he knows he'll have a reliable backup in Price to spell him for a few minutes.

He chose the Flyers over TCU, Western Kentucky, and South Florida.
