In 1992 a group of young NBA players visited St. Croix to promote their league. One rookie Chris King had played at Wake Forest University, in Winston-Salem North Carolina. Chris saw Tim playing in St. Croix. He persuaded Wake Forest Coach Dave Odom to check out his talented kid. Tim was just 16. Soon, other schools heard about Tim, too. They wanted Tim to playe for them but Tim eventually settled on Wake Forest and started school there in 1993.

At Wake Forest Tim became one of the best college player in the county.

He won the important Naismith and Wooden awards.
