Wright State transfer visits Dayton Flyers

Could Wright State’s loss be the Dayton Flyers’ gain?

Mark Alstork, the Raiders’ leading scorer last season, told this new organization he visited the University of Dayton on Monday night.

National basketball analyst Pat Lawless was the first to report the news. 

Alstork is a Thurgood Marshall graduate who spent a season at Ball State before transferring to WSU. He requested his release earlier this month.

His services appear to be in high demand with Michigan, Louisville, Georgetown, South Carolina and Illinois all also reportedly showing interest. (The Wolverines reportedly added Alter graduate Jaaron Simmons as a graduate transfer from Ohio University this week.)

McKinley Wright, a three-star 2017 prospect from Minnesota, signed with the Flyers last fall but asked for his release after Archie Miller left to become the head coach at Indiana.

Wright said last week Dayton and IU are among six schools he is considering. 

Miller was replaced by Anthony Grant, who said last week he is exploring multiple options as far as filling up his new Dayton roster for next season and beyond.

When Alstork requested his release from Wright State, he said he would enter the NBA draft process.

If he does not like what he hears from NBA scouts, he will transfer somewhere else for his final season of eligibility.

Were Alstork to end up at Dayton, he would be the second men’s basketball player to transfer between the schools since WSU moved up to Division I.

Cain Daliboa was a Flyer for three seasons before joining his brother, Seth, at Wright State for the 2001-02 campaign.
