The University of Dayton men’s basketball team added their fourth commitment to a Top-25 recruiting class in 2021 with Finnish power forward Mustapha Amzil’s commitment Monday.
Although he is classified as the 306th overall recruit in 2021 according to 247 Sports, Amzil will be filling the Flyers’ final scholarship position when he enrolls early in January. Sophomore forward Zimi Nwokeji did the same last year, and redshirted the season but gained valuable experience by practicing with the team.
Considered part of the 2021 recruiting class, the Flyers now rank 20th in 247’s team rankings, ahead of powerhouse programs like Duke, Kansas, North Carolina, and fellow mid-major Gonzaga.
