Elite Ohio prospect schedules visits to Dayton, Ohio State

The Dayton Flyers will host Dwayne Cohill for an official visit Sept. 15 according to a report

The Cleveland Hoy Name four-star guard told he will be in the Gem City next month for a close-up view of what coach Anthony Grant and his staff have to offer. 

When it comes to Dayton, Cohill said, "The coaching staff is unbelievable. Since they got the job they have made me a serious priority. 

“I talk to Coach (Anthony) Grant or an assistant at least five times a week. They tell me they need a lead guard who can come in and make an impact, and how I could be the face of their program. It is just intriguing and I feel like I could come in and make an impact right away."

Cohill is the No. 5 prospect in the state according to 247Sports. 

He has also scheduled visits to Ohio State and Virginia Tech. 

When he treks to Columbus on Sept. 21-23, he will be joined by Versailles senior wing Justin Ahrens, the state’s No. 7 prospect.
