Brad Wanamaker and Dejuan Blair were part of the same class. Blair, an obvious NBA player from day one, left after only two seasons. Wanamaker’s rout was much different. The Pitt alum worked hard to even be considered for the draft, but finally, his recognition is coming.

Fortunately, hard work is something Wanamaker has a extensive background in.
