• Dayton has reached out to Jitaurious Gordon, according a report by Chip Miller, of D1Vision.com. He’s a 6-foot point guard from Horn Lake High School in Horn Lake, Miss. He originally committed to Northern Arizona but reopened his commitment. There are no reports that Dayton has offered Gordon a scholarship yet. Memphis, Fort Wayne and Morehead State are among the other schools looking at Gordon.

• Dayton has offered a scholarship to Jalen Crutcher, a 6-3 point guard from Ridgeway High School in Memphis, Tenn. He was originally a 2017 recruit for Chattanooga but reopened his commitment and for now plans to be a part of the class of 2018.
