Eastern Michigan basketball adds third transfer, Daylen Harrison from Wyoming

By Rich Rezler

The Eastern Michigan basketball team added its third transfer this month, announcing today that 6-foot-6 forward Daylen Harrison from Wyoming has joined the program.

He joins previously-announced transfers DaShonte Riley from Syracuse and Glenn Bryant from Arkansas. All three will sit out the 2011-12 season and have two seasons of eligibility remaining with new EMU coach Rob Murphy.

“There's a great new coaching staff at EMU and a great group of guys who want to win and I am really looking really forward to getting started,” Harrison said in a statement.

Harrison started six games in two seasons at Wyoming, averaging 3.3 points and 2.1 rebounds. He’s a chemical engineering major and had a 4.2 grade point average at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s high school in Akron, Ohio, where he was a three-year starter.

“Daylen is a multi-dimensional wing player with skill and size,” Murphy said. “He is a good student that will make an impact in all areas of our basketball program.”

Harrison was released from his Wyoming scholarship on April 11, 10 days before Murphy's hiring was announced by Eastern Michigan. He is the third player to leave the Cowboys since the hiring of new coach Larry Shyatt.

Amath M’Baye will attend Oklahoma and Desmar Jackson is headed to Southern Illinois.

This year is going to be another tough one but next year looks really good. Also they are moving the student section over by the away teams bench much like what UofM did by putting a student section behind the away team bench in Chrysler. They are also putting in new seats in the lower section.

This coach must be doing something very right to get more people going into Ypsi than out. For the first time in a long time, there's hope around the EMU program again. Ypsi has seen a lot better days, but those who remember the Boykins era, or even the Gervin era, can remember how much fun it is to go to an EMU game when they have a team that inspires excitement.
