His college Bio sucks a**, his pro performance kicks a**!!

I wonder why he never started for N. Carolina, They really stunk it up the last 5 or more seasons and it seems to me Willie could of helped them.

Late bloomer maybe. Sounds like an animal in the weight room. He has something to prove on the pro level. And now is the time. Way to go, keep fighting.
