Sean Miller came (back) to Xavier with a reputation as a brilliant recruiter. Yesterday, he added some shine to that legacy. The Musketeers class is either just in or just out of the top 10, depending on who you ask. Here’s what the coach had to say about each player.
Trey Green, who played for Mokan Elite in the Nike EYBL, won the Nike EYBL Peach Jam MVP award with averages of 16.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.4 steals per game. “One of our biggest priorities going into the summer was finding a guard for the 2023 recruiting class,” according to Coach Miller. “Trey stood out to us as a tough competitor and an elite shot maker.”
Reid Ducharme played for BABC in the Nike EYBL, ranked fourth in the Nike EYBL in scoring at 18 ppg. while also adding four rebounds and three assists a game in 29 minutes of action per contest. “Reid is a tough, athletic, and skilled wing player who is also a great shooter,” said Miller. “He also excelled on the EYBL circuit playing for BABC where he proved to be one of the best scorers in the country.” More scoring? Yes, please.
Kachi Nzeh, was named 2022 First Team All-State and 2022 First Team All-Friends League, averaged 20 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks per game as a junior while leading his team to a 15-5 record. Per Coach Miller, “Kachi is a high upside forward from outside of Philadelphia who we are really excited to have join our program. He has long arms, quick feet, and can run the court with great speed.”
Dailyn Swain is coming off a junior season in which he was named the Ohio Division III Player of the Year, as he averaged 20.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 3.0 blocks and 2.9 steals per game. Coach Miller is excited about this combo guard. “Dailyn can really handle the ball and make decisions for someone with his size. Dailyn plays at a terrific high school program, Africentric High School, in Columbus coached by Mike Bates. He also had a great career on the EYBL circuit playing for All Ohio Red.”
Xavier’s incoming class is loaded with the kind of talent that can propel a team from hoping to be a six or seven seed to aiming for the Final Four. These guys will all be contributors early in their careers at Xavier. Most importantly, their all on board and ready to go.
