Former Oldsmar Christian star Elijah Weaver commits to Dayton

Elijah Weaver, who played a key reserve role for Southern California this past season, has transferred to Dayton. 

The former Oldsmar Christian standout made the announcement on his Twitter page Sunday afternoon. He picked the Flyers over offers from Arkansas and UCF.

In two seasons, Weaver started 19 games for the Trojans. As a sophomore, he averaged 6.6 points per game. With the Flyers, Weaver joins a program that went 29-2 and has all the pieces in place to once again be among the 10 teams in the country.

Weaver played for three different programs in high school. He started at Melbourne Air Academy as a freshman before spending the next two seasons at Oldsmar Christian. As a junior, he helped the Eagles win a state title as an independent. Weaver transferred to Rockledge for his senior season and was named the Florida Dairy Farmers Class 6A state player of the year after averaging 23.1 points, 8.7 assists and 8.2 rebounds per game.
