Dayton women’s basketball receives second commitment from 2019 class

Mariah Perez is from Newark, N.J.


The Dayton Flyers women’s basketball team received a verbal commitment on Monday from Mariah Perez, a 6-foot-3 senior forward from Newark Tech High School (N.J.). She’s the second 2019 recruit to pick the Flyers.

Perez ranks 85th in the 2019 class, according to ProspectNation.com. She also had scholarship offers from St. John’s, Louisiana State and West Virginia among others. Dayton offered her a scholarship last January.

Perez announced her decision on Instagram.

“I first wanted to start off by saying thank you to all of the coaches that took their time to recruit me,” she wrote. “I truly appreciate it. I also wanted to thank my coaches, family and friends who have been there for me & believed in me through this process. With that being said, I would like to announce that I have chosen to further me academic and athletic career at University of Dayton.”

Dayton received its first 2019 commitment last fall from Destiny Bohanon, a guard at Wayne High School.
