Koby Brea, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, announced his verbal commitment to the Dayton Flyers on Tuesday via an Instagram video.
“The time has come,” Brea said. “Everything I have worked for has led to this moment. I would have never expected any of this to happen so fast. I want to thank God for continuing to give me the strength to continue to do what I love.”

Brea becomes the second member of Dayton’s 2020 recruiting class. He joins Lukas Frazier, a 6-foot-4 guard from Lake Catholic High School in Mentor who announced his verbal commitment in June. Dayton has two more scholarships open in 2020.
Brea took an official visit to Dayton the weekend of Sept. 21, according to his high school coach Marcus Matthews. He’s a young senior at 16 years old and was considering doing a post-graduate season next year and moving to the 2021 class but will stay in the 2020 class.
