Dayton lands Bronx PG Dayshon Smith 

October, 5, 2012
Dayton scored an important commitment early Friday evening from 6-foot-3 guard Dayshon Smith (Bronx, N.Y./Putnam Science Academy).

Smith had seen his recruiting skyrocket over the last three months as he proved to be one of the few two-guards who was capable of sliding over to the point without a problem thanks to his instinctive feel for the game and an enhanced driving game to match his 3-point range.

Smith picked up offers from Illinois, Providence, Penn State and the vast majority of the Atlantic 10 after his summer with the New York Lightning and was receiving increasing interest from the likes of Kansas State, Memphis and others.
