oklahoma_city Willie Irick - The Draft Review

Background: Growing up in Teaneck can be hard for anyone, but it was especially difficult for Irick. His mother was killed and his father struggled with a substance abuse problem. But despite these challenges Irick made a solid splash into the competitive Northern New Jersey basketball community and earned a top 225 prospect ranking by most recruiting services. As a senior at Teaneck High School he averaged 18 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists per game and also earned second team all-state honors. Irick struggled academically, but went on to do extremely well at Vincennes Junior College. Division I schools Providence, Missouri and Morehead State soon became interested in his services, but when past academic issues resurfaced Irick had to sit out a year. He went back home to attend Bergen Community College and earned the remaining credits required for transfer to a four-year institute. Oklahoma City coach Ray Harper kept up on Irick and offered him a scholarship. Since then Irick’s career at Oklahoma City has been a success with back to back NAIA championships.
