Chrishawn Hopkins, a 6-1 guard, has officially committed to transfer to Wright State after playing two seasons at Butler University, WSU head coach Billy Donlon announced Monday. He will be eligible for the Raiders at the end of the 2013 fall semester and will enroll in classes in January.
The Indianapolis City Player of the Year at Manual High School, Hopkins played in all 37 games as a sophomore at Butler, starting 24 games. His career-high 22 points came against Evansville in his first collegiate start. He later matched his career high against Gardner-Webb, while also collecting 19 points against Indiana and being named to the 2011 Hoosier Invitational Team.
"Chrishawn is a proven player in the Horizon League," Donlon said. "He is a young man whom I trust will make the most of his second chance. We are very excited to have Chrishawn join the Wright State family."
A Third Team All-State guard in high school, he was the fifth leading scorer in Indiana at 25.8 points per game and registered his career-high 38 points against Richmond.
Wright State is currently 3-0 on the young season and will travel to Utah this week to square off against Central Michigan, Idaho State, and the University of Utah. Raiders are next at home against Morehead State December 1. For tickets, call 775-2771.
