Norfolk State transfer Rashid Gaston to visit Dayton

The Dayton men’s basketball team will host one potential transfer today and awaited word on a decision from another who already visited campus.

Rashid Gaston, a 6-foot-8 forward from Norfolk State, will visit UD on Thursday afternoon, according to a source. He is also considering Xavier and will visit next week, according to a report by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

Josh Cunningham, a 6-7 forward from Bradley who visited Dayton in May, could decide in the next one to four days between Dayton and Illinois, a source said.

Gaston, of Warren G. Harding High School in Warren, Ohio, averaged 15.5 points and 9.6 rebounds as a junior. He will have to sit out the 2015-16 season and has one year of eligibility remaining.

Gaston surprised Norfolk State coach Robert Jones with his decision to transfer on May 25. According to a story in the Virginian-Pilot, Gaston wanted to play his final season at a higher-profile school so he could increase his chances of playing professional basketball.
