My brother and I had a little Nerf hoop in the house that we would play on. We'd draft players from college basketball. Wayman was probably the only guy outside the ACC or the Big East that was ever drafted in our little one-on-one game where ... we were all five guys. It was just how good he was, how effortlessly he scored, how athletic he was. He seemed to just enjoy every second he was on the floor. I'd never seen a guy that was as good as him and scored as much as he did and have a smile on his face like that. I talked to him about two weeks before he had his surgery. When I gave him a call, I wasn't sure how he was going to be. I was incredibly amazed at how positive he was. It was just amazing the positive energy that he had.
OU basketball coachWayman, we love you and are praying for you. We can't wait to see you again back around at our games and supporting your Sooners. We can't wait to see you back out on the road touring and hear some of that great music that you play.
