DDN: Calvin all in with Raiders

Excerpt from the Dayton Daily News

Trey Calvin kept Wright State fans in suspense at the end of last season after saying he planned to explore his options with other schools — much like teammates Tanner Holden and Grant Basile did the previous year.

But though he’s certainly a high-major-caliber player, the 6-foot guard admitted he actually wasn’t waffling as much as he made it sound.

“I really didn’t get hit up by too many schools,” he said. “There wasn’t a lot swaying my decision. My loyalty is here with Wright State. It was a pretty easy decision.”

Holden announced he was transferring from Ohio State back to Wright State on May 17, but the Raiders knew of his intentions well before that.

That’s why Calvin didn’t wait long to reveal what he planned to do with his fifth year of eligibility. On March 13, he posted on Twitter, “Loyalty is the first law of God. Let’s run it back one more time Raider Nation.”

Asked last week why he was so sure about coming back, he said: “Why not? I want another championship. We’ve got a great team. Tanner came back. We’ve got all the tools to get another championship.”
