BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- With all of the lousy weather and Atlantic 10 basketball games getting cancelled due to COVID, Flyer fans were greeted with some day-brightening news on Monday morning. The Dayton Flyers had secured a commitment from 2021 PG Lynn Greer III of IMG Academy in Florida, which he announced on Instagram:

When you add Greer to DaRon Holmes, Kaleb Washington, Malachi Smith (and Mustapha Amzil) you get the #12 ranked recruiting class according to Rivals:

And AG isn’t done yet, I bet.

Later in the thread, a poster made this comment:

I had a buddy go to the University of Dayton at the time of the movie and their student housing was about 10 square blocks of housing named "The Ghetto". Every weekend the parties would kick off with each house trying to out-Delta the Deltas. It was madness.

Sounds about right, doesn’t it?

That’s it “From the Swamp”
