Darrion Trammell has announced that he will be staying with the Redhawks basketball program via his twitter account on Thursday. The 5’11 guard had originally posted that he would be entering the transfer portal back on April 5th and was expected to get offers from several schools.
Trammell led the Western Athletic Conference in scoring at 20.5 points per game and also averaged 1.9 steals and 5.3 assists. His performance had him as a finalist for Player of the Year and despite not winning, he was selected to the All-Conference First Team and All Newcomer Team. He averaged 19 points per game in the WAC tournament which also led him to make the All-Tournament Team.

Once an offseason that was seen as a step back for the Redhawks program, now appears to be one of progress. The pairing of Trammell and fellow All-Conference teammate Riley Grigsby will once again be one of the best in the WAC. Also add in a solid recruiting class and the main core of the team returning and the Redhawks now look like a threat to the top.
