May has been a big month for decisions this week for Andrew Wiggins. Last week, it was what type of tux (white, with a peach vest and matching bow tie) to wear for prom.
Tuesday, Wiggins, the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Player of the Year, announced he'll be wearing the crimson and blue of Kansas on the basketball court next season.
Wiggins, a 6-8 forward from Huntington (W.Va.) Prep who averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds this season, avoided as best he could the attention his recruitment drew, giving few clues to his choice. However, by waiting until the next-to-last day of the regular signing period to sign his letter of intent, the media spotlight only grew on the 18-year-old from Toronto and son of former NBA player Mitchell Wiggins and former Canadian track Olympian Marita Payne-Wiggins.
Second-best recruiting class this year (stupid Kentucky), and we're bringing back Perry Ellis (who is underrated) and Naadir Tharpe.
Andrew Wiggins (#1 player in nation)
Joel Embiid (best center in the nation)
Wayne Selden (#4 SF)
Conner Frankamp (#10 PG)
Brannen Greene (#9 SG)
If you guys haven't seen Wiggins...he has the potential to be the next LeBron James, and according to Zack Lowe, a few NBA execs have already stated that they would give him the max TODAY, to have him on their team. He defends all five positions on the court, can shoot, finish at the rim, pretty much do everything...best recruit since Kevin Durant.
