Daronagon Is Gone
BEVERLY HILLS (MI) – Those who frequent the platform-formerly-known-as-Twitter are aware that DaRon Holmes II goes by the username of “DaRonagon.” The Flyer Faithful first learned this fact when the highest ranked recruit to ever enroll at UD announced his commitment four years ago on Twitter:
