Ryan A. Delafield, the Director of Scouting & Evaluations for the Jacksonville Lee Bulls has reported to us that
Raines High School 6'2 175 lb. point guard London Warren committed to the Dayton Flyers after a weekend official visit.
Warren average 19 points 8 rebounds and 8 assists a game this past summer with the Jacksonville Lee Bulls.
London led Raines to the Class 4A state championship in 2004 and the regional finals in 2005.
Warren chose the Flyers over home town school Jacksonville University in a very close race with new coach Cliff Warren.
London felt that he could not have went wrong with either school. Warren could have waited for the late period as other big schools had expressed interest in him signing in the spring.
However, after missing part of his junior year with a broken arm, London felt that he wanted to concentrate on getting Raines back to the state playoffs.
