The recent surge of transfers to the Dayton Flyers men’s basketball team continues with the addition of Kobe Elvis from DePaul.

Originally from Brampton, Ontario in Canada, the 6-foot-2 rising sophomore guard played in 19 games for the Blue Demons last year, starting 4. Elvis averaged 5.2 points, 1.9 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game. He also shot well from the field, 41.9 percent from three-point range and 42.3 from the floor.

Elvis will likely plug in immediately to a roster that loses Jalen Crutcher, Rodney Chatman, Jordy Tshimanga and potentially Ibi Watson. He joins Toumani Camara from Georgia and Richard Amaefule from East Tennessee State, and fills the last of 13 scholarship spots for the Flyers.
