Point guard Jalen Crutcher, of Memphis, Tenn., signed a national letter of intent to play with the Dayton Flyers on Saturday via Twitter.
Crutcher will be the fourth player in Dayton’s 2017 recruiting class. That means Dayton has a point guard committed to the team again.
“I chose Dayton because I think I have a opportunity to come in and play as a freshman,” Crutcher said, “and I love the coaching staff and the fans!”

Crutcher is the first player recruited by new Dayton coach Anthony Grant and his staff to commit to the Flyers. He’s a three-star 6-3 guard who originally signed with Chattanooga. When Chattanooga lost its coach, Matt McCall, to Massachusetts, Crutcher asked for a release from his national letter of intent and planned to reclassify to the class of 2018, but he had the option of returning to 2017.
"High-level talent at the point guard spot,” McCall said when Crutcher signed. “He can really, really shoot.
