Andrew Wiggins isn’t saying much about which team he will choose orAndrew Wiggins isn’t saying much about which team he will choose or when he will make his decision leaving us all to wonder what will happen with the best prospect since LeBron James. All the uncertainty leads to endless speculation about where the mind of Andrew Wiggins is at and what factors into his decision. One thing I personally believe is legitimate in his decision making process is that Wiggins likely wants to know who he’s going to be playing with before he makes his final decision.
Roy Williams recently went on the radio and stated that he thinks the trio of James Michael McAdoo, Reggie Bullock and P.J. Hairston will return to Chapel Hill. CBS Sports’ Jeff Goodman reported that Hairston was in fact coming back before he family refuted that a decision had been made. Signs point to more staying than going this year for Carolina, so what does that mean for Wiggins.
The only logical conclusion I can draw from Wiggins waiting so long is that he wants to see who’s staying and who’s going. The picture is a little more clear in Kentucky with Julius Randle recently committing to Lexington. Now he needs to know what Kansas and Carolina will look like before he makes his final decision.
I’m not sure if Wiggins needs to see all three players come back in order to pick UNC, McAdoo’s decision probably means more than anything. If all three come back it will be interesting to see what Roy does with the starting lineup. So Roy thinks all three of his NBA prospects will be back next season, what does that mean for Andrew Wiggins?
Wiggins is still waiting with no indication of when he will announce his college decision. At this point it’s anyone’s guess where Andrew will go but having a strong supporting cast is obviously something that can’t hurt with Wiggins who has mentioned winning a title as one of his primary goals in college.
