Dayton lands another three-star

The Dayton Flyers have followed up on the commitment of Percy Gibson with a second three-star commitment in the month of August.
The second 2011 commitment is from LaDontae Henton out of Lansing (Mich.) Eastern High School.
"I like pretty much everything about Dayton," said Henton, a 6-foot-5 wing prospect. "The coaching staff is there for the players and helps them be better people. The players there get better on and off the court."
It wasn't an easy choice for Henton, who also considered offers from Utah, Penn State and Cleveland State and had interest from Marquette, Providence and Michigan, but the recruiting effort by Dayton also made a strong impression.
"Dayton recruited me the hardest," he said. "They were at early morning workouts and practices. They have been there since day one."
A left hander with a nose for the ball and a knack for scoring buckets, Henton plans on translating his skills seamlessly to the Atlantic-10.
"They want me to play on the wing and play right away," he said. "Offensively they want me to do what I do which is score, rebound and play hard."
Henton averaged 26 points and 14 rebounds per game as a junior.
