Wright State men's basketball coach Billy Donlon has announced the signing of two recruits to letters of intent to attend WSU and play basketball for the Raiders next year: 6-2, 195-pound guard Joe Bramanti from Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, and 5-10, 175-pound point guard Antonio "Bobo" Drummond from Lumiere Academy in LaPorte, Indiana.

"Joe and Bobo both come from excellent programs and have received great coaching," Donlon said.  "We are excited to have them join the Raider Family.  Joe will be able to play multiple positions, and I believe defend at our level, walking in the door.  Bobo is a guard who makes good decisions.  He has a very good feel for how to play."

Bramanti, originally from Andover High School in Massachusetts, averaged 22.3 points, six rebounds and four assists during his senior season when he was named the Most Valuable Player of the Merrimack Valley Conference.

"Joe was instrumental in leading us to a National Prep Championship!" said Brewster head coach Jason Smith.  "He was our toughest player and best perimeter defender. There's no question we do not win 33 games without him in our program. Joe is a winner and will be a tremendous addition to Coach Donlon's program at Wright State."


Drummond was a team captain who started every game and averaged 13.3 points and 4.9 assists as a junior and 13.8 points, 6.2 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 2.9 steals as a senior.  Prior to La Lumiere, Drummond played two seasons on the varsity team at Peoria Central in Illinois and averaged 8.0 points and 4.7 assists per game as a sophomore.

"Bobo is our undeniable leader," said Lumiere head coach Alan Huss. "He is as tough as anyone and is a winner above all else.  He will be an excellent addition to the WSU basketball program."

Donlon indicated he expects additional signings in the near future.
