    Yes. Paul Westhead signed 3 players who were designated Prop. 48: Nate Langley & Kevin Ward in his first Mason recruiting class, and Nixon in his final recruiting class before he was fired. I spoke to Terrance Nixon about his situation, and he indicated that he was a good high school student at Oxon Hill, but didn't do well on his SAT. I believe that Terrance graduated from Mason with a dual major. And, unlike Langley and Ward, Nixon earned his 4th year of eligibility. So, he sat out the 1997-98 season as required and, then, played in 1998-2002.

    He was a good kid, and I hope that he's doing well.

    You are the man, thanks Pablo!

    What was E Herring? A partial qualifier?

    Nixon sat in front of me last year (homecoming I think) with his wife and child (son, if I'm remembering correctly). Polite. Seemed to be flattered to be remembered.

    If I recall correctly, Herring was ineligible the fall semester of his freshman season due to late admission.

    T-Nix and Q Randall were my good friends from high schools roommates in the mason townhouses one year.... think that was 99-2000. My friendw was a wrestler at Mason. I hungout over there a lot. Terrance would hang with us and play video games all night long. Q always had some girl over so he didn't hang with us much downstairs LOL.

    I saw him a year or 2 ago at the game and we talked for like 20 minutes. He works for Fairfax County over across from Mason.... I think he does something with social services/child services in some aspect for the county.

    Always liked him and would always cheer for him when he was on the court.

    Amazing dunk. Just a reminder though that Ian Boyd had a similar dunk in HS and I don't think the kid has ever dunked in a game here. DP does wonders to kids.....

    Man, this kid just oozes cool. I wish I could pull off a quote like that. If anybody needs me, I'll be here at my crib working on it.

    I like this quote even better: “As soon as I got it, I knew that I was going to try to put it on his head.”

    That is the attitude we need to get back in this program ASAP.
