Junior now attending Hamilton Heights Christian Academy
Dayton Flyers coaches handed their latest 2020 scholarship offer — the third of the week — to Bayron Matos-Garcia, of the Hamilton Heights Christian Academy in Chattanooga, Tenn. The school announced the offer on Twitter on Tuesday.
The Florida Gators offered Matos-Garcia, a 6-foot-8 forward, on the same day. It was his first scholarship offer.
Matos-Garcia is originally from the Dominican Republic and arrived in the United States to play for Hamilton Heights earlier this year. Dayton added its first Dominican Republic native to the roster this year with the signing of Jhery Matos. Dayton assistant coach Ricardo Greer was born in the United States but has family ties to the Dominican Republic and played for its national team.
It’s too early to tell how many scholarships Dayton will have open in 2020. It has two open scholarships for 2018 and will have another scholarship opening in 2019. The seniors in 2020 will be Ryan Mikesell, Trey Landers and Jhery Matos.
