» FIVE TAKEAWAYS: Dayton plays compete game vs. Richmond
Recruiting news: Chase Johnson, a 6-foot-9 transfer from the University of Florida, committed to Dayton on Sunday, announcing his verbal commitment on Twitter. He fills Dayton's last 2019 scholarship.
Johnson visited the University of Dayton on Dec. 29, two days after announcing he was transferring from the Florida Gators. He visited the University of Pittsburgh on Saturday.
Johnson sat behind the bench during Dayton’s game against Georgia Southern at UD Arena. He’s a 6-foot-9 redshirt freshman forward from Ripley, W.Va., who attended Huntington Prep (W.Va.). He was a four-star recruit who ranked 85th in the class of 2017, according to 247Sports.com.
Johnson played in four games a year ago as a freshman and received a medical redshirt because of concussion issues. He appeared in two games this season, averaging 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in six minutes per game and was hampered by another concussion early in the season.
Milestone reached: Janis Gudorf has been attending Dayton games since the 1960s. That's just what you do when grow up in Dayton, she said. She had an idea she might have a chance to be the 10 millionth fan Sunday but was excited to receive the honor.
