Wright State men’s basketball adds recruit

The Wright State men’s basketball team added another recruit Thursday when it received a national letter of intent from 6-foot shooting guard Tyler Mitchell.

As a junior at Kings High School, Mitchell averaged 14.7 points, 4.3 assists and 2.9 rebounds while leading the Knights to the Eastern Cincinnati Conference championship and winning the Player of the Year award.

“We are very fortunate to sign one of the top guards in the state of Ohio this year,” Nagy said. “Tyler should immediately impact our team because of his ability to handle, pass, and shoot the basketball. His toughness is also a quality that you can’t coach. His signing is a great start our 2016-17 recruiting class which will be the new foundation for our program.”
