One of the newest recruits for the Wright State basketball team during the off-season, has been 6’7 freshman Steven Davis from Indianapolis Manual High School.

Davis verbally committed to the Raiders in August but nothing had been announced in the media of his signing and he was not included in the basketball section of the website or in basketball publications around the country.

Head coach Billy Donlon said through news reports that he has signed his letter of intent and is taking classes and a member of the team for this season.

Donlon will use Davis all over the floor in multiple positions.

In other Raider news:

* Coach Donlon has moved Director of basketball operations Brendan Mullins down on the floor to assistant coach to take the place of Clayton Bates, who left to go to Western Michigan a few days ago.

Wright State guard Mays to transfer for senior season to possibly Purdue

When Julius Mays arrived at Wright State after playing two years at North Carolina State, he said he would be able to be a leader on a young team.

Well, all of that is past tense as after playing only one season, he is taking advantage of an NCAA rule that allows a graduating player to transfer to another school if he is pursuing another degree if he has eligibility remaining.

The 6’2″ 195 lb guard  Mays will  graduating in June, which means that as long as the school he transfers to offers a graduate program that Wright State doesn’t, he will be eligible to play immediately instead of sitting out a year. Purdue does offer a graduate program and has two scholarships available.

Mays is a native of Marion, Indiana.

His totals for the Raiders were very respectable, 30 games played, 33.4 minutes per game, 14.1 points per game, .832 free throw percentage and .424 3-point field goal percentage.

The Raiders will miss his leadership and scoring abilities.
