    Xavier on Wednesday picked up a commitment from four-star Class of 2024 guard Jonathan Powell of Dayton (OH) Centerville.

    Ranked the No. 19 shooting guard by, Powell chose Xavier over Clemson, Indiana, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech.

    “My decision to choose Xavier over any school came down to who me and my family feels can develop me into being a next-level talent,” Powell told On3.com. “I also like the program and coaching staff a lot and I feel at home, especially with the relationship my uncle had with Coach [Sean] Miller. I feel coach Miller has my best interest in me as a student-athlete.”

    He added: “My game I feel is very raw and natural. All the work I put into my game behind closed doors will show in years to come. I’m an unfinished product but when coach Miller and the staff get their hands on me after my senior season, I’ll be very polished up and ready to show that.”

    He is Xavier’s first commit in 2024.
