Did a future Mr. Basketball just commit to the University of Dayton? Lansing Eastern’s LaDontae Henton recently committed to Brian Gregory and he will be a Flyer in 2011.
I’ve had the opportunity to visit Dayton for a game and, let me just say, it has to be among the best venues for basketball I’ve ever seen. People down there are basketball crazy, and certainly don’t consider their brand of ball to be mid-major.
Henton, like his coach opined in the above linked article, is the best senior in Michigan. It’s truly an unbelievable get for the Flyers. He’s nearly 6-foot-6 and can play multiple positions. More important is that he is ready for college ball physically, and he still has a year to get stronger.
