DAYTON — Dwayne Cohill plans to sign a national letter of intent with the Dayton Flyers on Wednesday, he told the Dayton Daily News on Tuesday, but he won’t hold a public signing until Nov. 14.
Cohill, a 6-foot-3 senior guard Holy Name High School in Parma Heights, verbally committed to Dayton on Sept. 11. Wednesday is National Signing Day and the earliest day he can officially sign with UD.
Cohill ranks 93rd in the class of 2018, according to Rivals.com. He’s a consensus four-star recruit. He was Dayton’s top priority in recruiting throughout the summer.
“A lot of schools preach to you that you’re their top priority, but they don’t 100 percent show it,” Cohill said in September. “They preached it and backed it up. They didn’t just talk a good game. They showed me I was 100 percent their top priority. That was something that really stood out to me.”
Cohill’s first game of his senior season is Dec. 2.

Kansas safety Derrick Neal took ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Williams up on his weekly challenge to students of that week’s College Gameday location: a little game of one-on-one.
It’s very safe to say that Neal got the best of this exchange, caught by Twitter user Zachary Hopp.

Neal quickly stuffs Williams’s shot, then peels back for a deep three to secure his dominance in the exchange.
Normally Williams can destroy the college students, even though he’s 36. The ESPN analyst played college basketball at Duke and professionally with the Chicago Bulls. At Duke, he was the National College Player of the Year, and won a National Championship in 2001.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee doesn’t open spring football practice until March 20, but the Vols are already under intense scrutiny.
Coach Jeremy Pruitt’s first recruiting class has given way to speculation about how Tennessee will fare next season.
The popular Nashville-based company, which produces top annual preview magazines for several sports, forecasts the Vols as the No. 58 team in the nation.
Athlon states that “Quarterback Jarrett Guarantano and running back Ty Chandler form a promising duo on offense, and guard Trey Smith is already among the SEC’s best in the trenches.”
Chandler and Smith appear to be locks for great success, but the quarterback position is up for grabs.
The concern, Athlon noted, is the run defense.
SEC Country’s Mike Griffith and WNML’s Josh Ward discussed how Pruitt might address the challenges in today’s podcast.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — The Cincinnati Reds had their first full-squad workout of Spring Training on Monday.
Here are five things to know.
1. Reds first baseman Joey Votto says he wants to win, “not one, but two rings before I leave.” I guess that means the 11-year veteran needs to get busy. Votto had a lot to say in a wide-ranging interview after practice.

“As a Reds fan and player, I’m so tired of losing,” Votto said. “I know everybody at home is. I don’t want to be comfortable with it. I don’t want it to be OK. I don’t want the conversation to always be in the rebuilding vain. It needs to get going now.”
“As far as us winning a championship this year, I’m not sure. I would never say yay or nay… but we’ve got to make a major turn this year and we have to head in a positive direction. We can’t lose the people in Cincinnati. I would like to think it’s a baseball city and we owe the baseball fans of Cincinnati a much, much better show.”
2. Jared Hughes is my new “favorite” interview. The former Pirates and Brewers relief pitcher said he knows his new team will win the Central Division, and he thinks the Reds can be serious National League contenders.
The 6-foot-7 right-hander was the Reds big free-agent aquisition in the offseason. Among other things, Hughes loves to sprint out of the bullpen to the mound.

3. Bryan Price called the first full-squad workout a “feel good” day for his team. Hitters took batting practice off of “dead arms” Monday. Translation: Coaches throwing easy stuff. Today and Wednesday the hitters will get a look at the real stuff in live BP to get ready for Friday’s Cactus League opener against the Indians.
4. Center fielder Billy Hamilton said the offseason was a bit distracting with trade talk swirling around his name. The former Dayton Dragon said he wants to show the club that drafted him that they made a good decision keeping him — at least for now.
