UNC Basketball Recruiting: Andrew Wiggins Commits to Kansas

The long and exhausting recruiting drama that has followed Andrew Wiggins is finally over!

Wiggins held a private ceremony where he signed his National Letter of Intent to play and attend the University of Kansas!

Speculation had been that he would choose Kentucky, but in fact the results where in quite the opposite direction.

Wiggins this season averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds and ranked as the No. 1 overall recruit for the 2013 basketball class. He will play one year for Kansas unless something terribly goes wrong and then will enter the NBA draft next season. He is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s class as well.

His commitment came on the next-to-last day before the end of the signing period. He faced a ton of criticism from fans all over the college basketball campus from taking such a long time to make a decision. Wiggins will fill a rather large hole at Kansas that was left after the draft and graduation swept the Kansas roster after their Sweet 16 run this season.

The No 1. overall recruit chose Kansas over Florida State, Kentucky, and North Carolina. Fans of Florida State are already lashing out with negative tweets intended for Wiggins after he chose Kansas.
