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.
