Both Detroit Southeastern big man Percy Gibson and Lansing Eastern forward LaDontae Henton were released from their national Letters of Intent to play basketball at Dayton. New head coach Archie Miller will have four scholarships available for 2011.
The University of Dayton announced the news today in a press release.
"Percy and LaDontae committed to the University of Dayton after a long recruiting process, and after the coaching change they and their families feel it is in their best interest to start fresh," new UD coach Archie Miller said in the release. "I understand that, and I respect their wishes in this matter.
"The conversations I have had with them have been positive toward myself, our program and the University of Dayton, and I look forward to them getting to know me better in the recruiting process so that they remain Flyers."
Percy averaged 22 points and 11.5 rebounds this season, while Henton tallied 25.6 points, 14.5 rebounds and 5.2 assists in finishing second for Michigan's Mr. Basketball.
At this point, Dayton doesn't have anyone signed for the fall with four scholarships to fill.
