Andrew Wiggins. It’s the name of one kid that has consumed the concentration of four of the nation’s best basketball programs over the last several months. Florida State, Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina have put all their efforts into recruiting the nation’s best player for the class of 2013. Yet, nobody has any idea where he will commit.
There is this mystery and obsession about Wiggins’ recruitment that has never been seen before. It’s become this obsession for the fans of these four schools. Forums and article commentts are going crazy about why fans think he will commit to their school. However, I wonder to myself why we’ve all become obsessed with his recruitment. Even I don’t understand why I am watching it closely other than, I want him to play for North Carolina.
The question truly shouldn’t be which school he will commit to anymore. It should be, when will he announce his decision. Wiggins has just over a month left before he must make his decision. The deadline is May 15th and it is fast approaching.
Wiggins has sent off signals that he was leaning towards Kentucky after his meeting with John Calipari. Wiggins has reportedly said he would commit to the loser of the UNC vs. Kansas game, which was North Carolina. Wiggins was said to commit to Florida State because of his family’s history with the school.
Nobody besides Wiggins, truly has the slightest idea of where he is thinking. At this point, it just seems that he will wait until the absolute last day he can to announce his decision.
