Jusaun Holt, a 6-foot-5 forward in the class of 2021, announced Tuesday he received a scholarship offer from the Dayton Flyers.

Holt is a junior at the St. Francis Day School in Roswell, Ga. He’s a four-star recruit who ranks 91st in the 2021 class, according to 247Sports.com.

Georgia Tech offered Holt a scholarship in June. Washington and Xavier offered him a scholarship in September. Tulane and Georgia have also offered him scholarships.

Dayton has filled all its scholarships in the 2020 class, though one would open if Obi Toppin leaves for the NBA Draft.

The 2021 class could be a large one because Dayton will lose five players from the 2020-21 season if the roster does change. Jalen Crutcher, Jhery Matos, Ibi Watson, Rodney Chatman and Jordy Tshimanga will be playing their final season.
