Minnesota PG picks Dayton

Dayton may have just added its point guard of the future.

Three-star Minnesota native McKinley Wright committed to coach Archie Miller and the Flyers on Tuesday.

“McKinley Wright is another strong guard addition for Dayton as he can attack the paint and make plays for others with his quickness,” NBCSports.com recruiting analyst Scott Phillips said of the 2017 prospect. “The Flyers beat some solid competition for Wright and Archie Miller continues to recruit well there.”

The Flyers secured Wright’s commitment over offers from Xavier, Memphis and Minnesota. He’ll be joining a team that will be losing starting point guard Scoochie Smith, who averaged 11.7 points and 4.3 assists as a junior. Wright gives them an immediate replacement option to run Miller’s offense and help defend on the perimeter.

Wright is the third commit from Miller in his 2017 class with power forward Jordan Pierce and shooting guard Jordan Davis already in the fold. Both players committed within the last month.
