This is Dayton's third commitment from an incoming freshman in the 2019 class. Mariah Perez, a 6-foot-3 senior forward from Newark Tech High School (N.J.), committed in September. Destiny Bohanon, a 5-8 guard from Wayne, committed in September 2017.

Perez and Bohanon signed their letters of intent in November. Dayton also will have Vanderbilt transfer Erin Whalen making her debut in 2019.
