Well, it appears as if this is going to be one of those bad news kind of weeks. Jeff Goodman is reporting that Maalik Wayns is through at Villanova, and will sign with an agent (reportedly Andy Miller) and forgo his final year at school.
Villanova fans probably already know this, but Maalik Wayns is done at 'Nova. Has - or will sign - w/ Andy Miller, source told CBSSports.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanCBS) March 21, 2012
Thinking back a week ago when it was originally announced that Maalik Wayns had entered his name into the 2012 NBA Draft, I noticed the following tweet from Leek. I chose to ignore it. I should not have done that and gotten my hopes up.
I know what I want I know what I'm doing ppl telling me different I'm know where I'm going!!— Maalik Wayns (@MaalikWayns2) March 14, 2012
Or you know, this one.
Where I'm from I've been going against the odds all my life why stop now it's time to prove em wrong once again the journey begins— Maalik Wayns (@MaalikWayns2) March 14, 2012
Anyways, I still hope Wayns changes his mind and doesn't sign with an agent. We are in major trouble and right back in the same spot we were this season without him. Unfortunately, it looks like he is gone.
Best of luck Leek, it's been real, and thanks for the memories.
