DAYTON – Wright State men’s basketball coach Scott Nagy has announced the signing of three players this afternoon to national letters-of-intent to attend Wright State University and join the Raider program beginning next fall.
The newest Raiders are DayJaun Anderson from Dayton, OH (Ponitz High School), Kaden Brown from Grand Rapids, MI (Catholic Central High School) and Solomon Callaghan from Wadsworth, OH (Wadsworth High School).
“We have had good recruiting classes in the past, but I honestly believe this is the best we have ever had. All three of these young men are incredible students and teammates as well as phenomenal players,” Nagy said. “I can’t say enough how excited we are about the future of our team and the individual college careers of each of these incredible young men.”
Anderson, a 6’3″ guard, averaged 19.5 points per game last season as a junior while adding 3.8 rebounds a night and 2.5 assists per contests at Ponitz High School on the way to being named Dayton Public Schools Offensive Player of the Year.
“Dayjaun was our first commit of the summer and really helped us kick off our great recruiting class. He is a very serious student in the classroom and on the floor. We think his athleticism and his tremendous shooting ability will be a great asset to our team,” Nagy said. “Having a player of his caliber from Dayton gives us a big boost in the area and were so glad he and his family gave us their trust to help him reach his academic and basketball goals.”
Brown, a 6’0″ guard, averaged 21.0 points, 4.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game as a junior at Catholic Central High School and was named an All-Michigan Division 2 First Team performer. Brown helped lead his team to the 2021 Division 2 state championship before finishing as the 2022 Division 2 state runners-up.
“We are very excited about having Kaden join our team. He is one of the top point guards in the entire state of Michigan and his teams are used to winning a lot. Kaden exemplifies all of the things that it means to be a Raider,” Nagy said. “He is a tremendous student, he is tough, he is highly competitive, he is a tremendous defender and he can really shoot the ball. We believe our fan base will fall in love with his infectious passion for the game.”
Callaghan, a 6’2″ guard, averaged 18.2 points per game as a junior while collecting 4.6 rebounds per contest and passing out 2.9 assists per game at Wadsworth High School as he was named an All-Ohio Division 1 honorable mention performer.
“Having Solomon join our program gives us great flexibility on the perimeter. He can play several positions on both ends of the floor and is a very physical presence as well as an incredible passer and teammate,” Nagy said. “He is an excellent student and is exactly what we are looking for when we try to define what being a Raider means.”
