Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 recruit for the 2013 college basketball class, announced on Tuesday that he will attend Kansas.
Wiggins had kept things quiet and there was only one reporter present at his announcement from his high school — Huntington Prep in West Virginia. The Toronto native is picking Kansas over North Carolina, Kentucky, and Florida State.
Wiggins’ father, Mitchell, played in the NBA, while his mother was a track athlete. Both attended college at Florida State. Wiggins’ older brother plays basketball for Wichita State.
Kansas seems like it will be a good fit for Wiggins. They’re losing Ben McLemore, Jeff Withey, and their three other starters, so Wiggins should be the star of the team unlike at Kentucky where there would be several other top players.
