Wayne Newton had a successful singing career but he was also a very good spot-up shooter, who valued the basketball.I first read the header of this thread to say that we signed Wayne Newton and thought it was some kind of Vegas naming rights deal for the arena. I'm relieved to see it is Woody and not Wayne that will be joining us next year.
Judging from the highlight reel, Woody Newton appears to have perfected the three-point "bank" shot.Wayne Newton had a successful singing career but he was also a very good spot-up shooter, who valued the basketball.
I knew someone else went there but couldn't remember which player. I think Paulsen recruited him too (maybe when he transferred the first time).did anyone else notice that Woody Newton was on the same Mt. Zion Prep team in Baltimore as Otis Frazier III?
Did aj Wilson go there also?
Probably waiting to see if he gets a waiver to play right away. I highly doubt he is interested in hanging out for a full year on the bench at Mason.There has been no press release on Woody to date. He is also not listed on our roster page. Everyone else from the portal had a press release and is currently listed on our roster. Anyone have any insight as to why this is the case?
All Woody has to say to the NCAA is that his coach hollered at him once during practice for not having his shirt tucked in for wind-sprints and he'll be granted a transfer waiver.Probably waiting to see if he gets a waiver to play right away. I highly doubt he is interested in hanging out for a full year on the bench at Mason.
Paperwork takes sometime, no issues.
I really wanted to see that young man in green and gold. One of many lost opportunities.At least we can all feel good about it not being the Therence Mayimba type of paperwork.
