Cornell basketball transfer Nolan Cressler of Plum received his third scholarship offer Monday, this one from Elite Eight team Dayton.

A 6-foot-4 sophomore guard, Cressler also has offers from Vanderbilt and Rutgers and has been in contact with Pitt, Michigan, Notre Dame, Davidson, Butler and Creighton.

The All-Ivy League honorable mention selection who started two seasons for Cornell has a visit planned to Vanderbilt on Friday. He has had almost daily interaction with potential suitors since his release from Cornell on March 20.

Dayton is coached by Archie Miller, the son of longtime Blackhawk coach John Miller and brother of Arizona coach Sean Miller.
