Brown committed to Xavier in January but reopened her recruitment in March after a coaching change. Brian Neal stepped down after six seasons, and Xavier hired Melanie Moore.

Brown, a 5-foot-9 guard from Danville, Ill., is a four-star recruit, according to ESPN.com, and ranks 61st in the 2020 class. She’s a senior at Schlarman High School.

“After de-committing from the University of Xavier due to the change of the coaching staff, I would like to announce my commitment to the University Of Dayton,” she wrote on Instagram. “Thank you God for giving me another chance and for giving me this amazing ability to play the sport I love.”
