The Word on the street is: Ding Dong, can we come in?

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.

    John, you are right. I out of curiosity went back and checked my files this morning and will have to make a few adjustments.

    Going for the home runs with these titles can get tricky and with Deng Leek and Leek Leek it gets even trickyer if that is a word. Wild spelling with trickyer….

    Deng Leek & Leek Leek are in the country illegally, Kids are being used by older brother, Kids live in Laurel, Maryland but plays for a AAU team in Indiana. AAU have a 100 miles rule. All the adults involve with these kids should be investigation by the INS and the NCAA. What happen with Veritas Sports Academy? The adminstrator or coaches at these schools that let these kids in needs to be fired. Kids are being used for basketball and coaches advancement

    A-HOPE FOUNDATION is associated with these two kids, Deng and Leek was brought in the USA by Our Savior New American School not A Hope Foundation. Me down the money is being paid for these somewhere. Veritas couldn’t paid it teachers last year, sounds shady to me. Some how Gatlin is involve but……..who knows. That is the landscape we live in. Making money off kids or selling kids.
