6-foot-7 small forward Andrew Wiggins, the no.1 recruit in the nation, has committed to play for the Kansas Jayhawks after deciding between Kentucky, North Carolina, and Florida State.
Wiggins, who hails out of Canada, averaged 23.6 points, 11.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists for Huntington Prep in West Virginia last season after transferring to the basketball loving school. His hard work earned him the Naismith High School player of the year award.
Kansas Jayhawks coach Bill Self was surprised by Wiggins decision to play for him because “we never had an idea which way he was leading.
“Andrew did this the exact way he said he was going to,” Self said in a news release. “He played his cards very close to his vest as did his mother and father. I knew we were one of four. The competition was very stiff and we were fortunate that we were able to ink him today. He’s a tremendous talent and a terrific kid.”
