Miami University men’s basketball coach Jack Owens announced the signing of Dalonte Brown to a National Letter of Intent on Wednesday.

A 6-foot-7 forward from Toledo, Brown was a four-year letterwinner for Bowsher High School, where he averaged a double-double as a senior and reached the 1,000 career point milestone. Brown averaged 22.1 points per game in 2016-17 and was named second team All-Ohio as well as the Toledo City Player of the Year.

“Dalonte provides this team with athleticism from the forward position,” Owens said. “He can play inside or out. He’s a good rebounder with a high skill level. He brings something we needed in this class and we’re excited that he’s here.”

Brown joins guards Jalen Adaway, Isaiah Coleman-Lands and Darrian Ringo as part of Owens’ first recruiting class.
