The Word on the Street is that they are doing some heavy checking on the Leek(Deng/Leek) brothers, that were with Keith Gatlin over at Veritas Academy in Kernersville last year, to see if they can transition with Keith to High Point Wesleyan for the upcoming season.
The Word is, “Ding Dong, can Deng and Leek Leek come in?” Right now, there seems to be alot of cheking going on and the NCAA Clearing House is even set to get involved if necessary to make sure that the Deng and Leek are legally in the United States and that the two tall young men will be cleared to play for Coach Gatlin at Wesleyan.
The Deng/Leek combo stand right at 6’7 and 7’0, and if they are declared to be legal exchange-type students now living legally in the US, then they will be able to play for the HPW Trojans.
With all the eligibility scrutiny going on at every level these days you can never be too safe. You don’t want to win a title and have a very successful seaon and then have it all taken away.
Coach Gatlin will get it all checked out and we hope he is ready to settle in at High Point Wesleyan for many years to come.
