“We are thrilled that Will has decided to join the Blue Demon basketball family” Wainwright said. “He is a skilled guard who also has the ability to score while still getting his teammates involved in the offense. Will is a tremendous addition to our program as we continue the challenge of BIG EAST basketball.”
