Oak Hill head coach Steve Smith told RivalsHoops.com that Dacons is interested in Wyoming, Boston University, East Carolina, Davidson, and Appalachian State. "We will know where he will visit in the next week," Smith said. "He is a very good player. He was one of our most consistent players all year."

During the summer, Dacons told the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com that he has been offered scholarships by Clemson, DePaul and Delaware. But the schools listed above have gone elsewhere to grab talent.
