Chicago wing Kendall Pollard picks Dayton

Dayton head coach Archie Miller landed a verbal commitment from small forward Kendall Pollard (Chicago/Simeon) on Friday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

"They not only got a great basketball player, but they got a great kid," Simeon head coach Rob Smith told the paper.

Pollard chose the Flyers over Rhode Island. He joins fellow Chicago product Kyle Davis (Morgan Park) along with Dayshon Smith (Bronx, N.Y./Putnam Science) in Dayton's 2013 class.
