This weekend two future stars of North Carolina basketball are in Chicago for the McDonald’s All-American Game. Along with them is potential Tar Heel superstar and No. 1 overall basketball recruit in the 2013 class, Andrew Wiggins.
There has been a lot of speculation that Wiggins will commit to John Calipari and the University of Kentucky after the two met after his send off to Chicago last week. Meeks was quick to dismiss that and continued to confidently say that he thinks he has sealed the deal for Wiggins to be a Tar Heel come the fall.
“I think we’ll get him,” said Meeks to USA Today. “Me and Andrew are pretty tight and I have been working on him all week. I think I’ve got this thing done.”
Meeks even told Inside Carolina a few weeks ago: “I’ve been talking to Andrew [Wiggins] most of the time. Just telling and getting him to realize that Carolina is a perfect fit for him. Letting him know he’ll be helpful to us, even if he only stays for one year. I’m just helping out I guess.”
Wiggins’ brother, Nick, who is a current player for the Wichita State Shockers tweeted that the world and basketball fans were going to be shocked when Andrew announced where he would be playing college basketball.
What that means? Nobody but Nick truly knows, because Andrew appeared to be caught off guard when he was asked about the tweet and what it could potential mean.
Wiggins has until May 15th to make his decision and appears to be waiting until that exact and final day to do so.
