Top Junior Headed To A-10's No. 46 junior is off the board. According to a source, Chris Wright will decide for an Atlantic 10 team.

Trotwood (Ohio) Madison High is home to one of the 50 best players in the country. Chris Wright, the 6-foot-6 small forward who ran with the Queen City Prophets last summer, is likely to pick Dayton at a press conference Monday afternoon at his school.

"I would be shocked and surprised if it was somewhere else," a source told The Flyers, Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, Notre Dame, Clemson and Georgia (among a host of others) had been recruiting Wright.

Last weekend, Wright was in town to watch the Flyers in an exhibition game with his family.

The Dayton Flyers worked to get this one. The commitment is the highest Dayton has received since the arrival of Brian Gregory. The coach has recruited a higher caliber of player since arriving and signing 6 prospects in his initial class. The foundation is there for Dayton basketball and Wright has a chance to be the signature recruit for a program on the rise.

At the 2005 Nike Hoop Jamboree, Wright showed off another level of athleticism. With an offensive game and the leaping ability of a big time prospect, Wright went from being a nice athlete to becoming the No. 46 prospect overall and the No. 8 small forward in the country.

Last season, he averaged 15 points a game. His summer was slightly derailed when a spider bite forced him to miss time on the trail in July.

In short, Monday is a big day for the Flyers and Wright's commitment is a big one.
