Wichita State adds Cleveland State transfer Anton Grady

Friday May 8th, 2015

Wichita State will add Anton Grady as a graduate transfer for the 2015-16 season, the school announced on Friday. He will be eligible immediately.

At Cleveland State last season, Grady averaged 14.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game while shooting 48.8 percent from the field.

The 6'8,'' 225-pound forward was named to the All-Horizon League first team.

“Anton certainly fills a need within our program with the departure of Darius Carter,” Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall said. “He can score the ball inside and out, is a relentless rebounder, and is also a very good defensive player. We feel like his maturity along our front line will be very beneficial.”
