"I'm in the weight room everyday. I love lifting weights. I think it's like 10,000 square feet and 60 different stations."
Wink could tell that the NIU staff was serious in their pursuit of him as they were the first school to offer him a scholarship. "They weren't going to mess around. They saw me play a few times and came out and offered me."
David chose Northern Illinois after receiving interest from Davidson, Nevada, Oregon, Portland State, Santa Clara, and Washington State.
