The Dayton Flyers got on the board in the class of 2017 with a top priority on Saturday night. Jordan Davis committed to the Flyers while on his official visit. Davis had long been a priority for Dayton, and the Flyers were able to get it done.
This is the first commitment for the Flyers and it is a big one. The Flyers will lose their top three perimeter options following this season, and are looking for a lot of help in the backcourt in 2017. Davis was a player that they identified early on in the process as someone they wanted, and they were able to seal the deal on the visit.
With his ability to make shots and his solid athleticism, Davis is someone who should come in right away and compete for a chance to start.
During the summer the 6-foot-3 Davis played on the high powered Team Loaded North Carolina squad. During the adidas Gauntlet he averaged 13.5 points per game and shot 41 percent from the three point line.
At Dayton Davis will be asked to make shots and potentially be a defensive stopper.
This is the first commitment for the Flyers in the 2017 class. It is a class that Dayton hopes grows to as many as five players before it is all said and done.
