Williams will stay local

Dayton landed their first pledge of the 2015 class over the weekend.

The Dayton Flyers have been working hard to secure talent in their home base in the 2015 class, and on Sunday they got good news when Xeyrius Williams picked the school. The Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne standout chose the Flyers following an impressive showing at their team camp.

"Xeyrius actually committed on Saturday night to Dayton," said Wayne Head Coach Travis Trice Sr. "He has been playing really well, and played great at their team camp, Coach Miller offered and Xeyrius accepted the offer."

At 6-foot-7 and 200 pounds, Williams has the length and athleticism to play either forward position, and continues to get better. Add in that he is young for his grade, and Dayton potentially landed a long term stud in Ohio's very talented 2015 class.

"We have played against some of the top teams in the states of Ohio and Michigan here recently," explained Trice. "Xeyrius has guarded big guys and wings and he has dominated everybody. I really think he is coming into his own as a player and he is ready to take his game to the next level."

Before accepting the offer from Dayton, Williams had offers from schools such as Ohio, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Toledo, and others.

Williams is the first commitment for Dayton in the class of 2015.
