Wainwright the Deathdog
« on: November 14, 2017, 11:15:37 AM »
From a past Wichita Eagle article:

Kansas State landed one of the nation’s top unsigned junior-college guards Thursday.

Amaad Wainright, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound sophomore from Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, Texas, orally committed to the Wildcats after averaging 14.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists last season.

“He fills up the stat sheet,” Trinity Valley coach Guy Furr said in a phone interview. “There were nights he led us in scoring, there were nights he led us in assists, there were also nights when he led us in rebounds. Had he been selfish, he could have easily averaged in the 20s for us, and he would have done so at most junior-college programs. But he is a team player.”

Our new Super Grunt, and he is better than Hot Horndog.

He's a lot better than a grunt.  Will be a big part of the rotation with Sneed, Brown, Diarra, Stokes, and maybe Patrick.  Five or six good players manning three positions.

The nice thing is that he can be a Dominique Sutton type of player. Athletic 2-3, play some defense, score a bit, rebound. Though he might be more like Akeem Wright.

I do like our rotation for all spots from the 1 through the 4. I feel better about the 5 spot, but not for sure yet.
