Former Dayton Flyers walk-on guard Jeremiah Bonsu is taking his career to the NBA.

After graduating from the University of Dayton in 2017 and spending a season at Bowling Green as a graduate assistant men's basketball coach, Bonsu has a new job as a player development intern with the Dallas Mavericks.

Bonsu's former teammate at Dayton, Kostas Antetokounmpo, signed a two-way contract with the Mavericks last week.

Bonsu spent three seasons with the Flyers. He never scored a point and appeared in only two games as a senior, but he became a popular player in part because of his celebrations on the bench.

Bonsu, a graduate of Pickerington North High School, wrote two articles for The Players' Tribune during his career, one about the death of teammate Steve McElvene and another about his unlikely path to college basketball.
