Wichita State Shocker, and Final Four participant Nick Wiggins was once singing the praises of the Kentucky Wildcats and John Calipari. Before the college season began, he was interviewed about his younger brother and where he thought Andrew should go to college. He said Kentucky was the best choice for his brother, but he was going to make his own choice. Fast-forward 7 months, and Nick Wiggins now thinks Andrew should not go to Kentucky because of all the recruits the ‘Cats have already promised scholarships to. He reflects on this years team and how they didn’t gel. He says Kentucky is not the best fit for his younger brother. In an interview with the Courier Journal, the elder Wiggins says he thinks Andrew would disappear among the other talent Kentucky will have on the court. Personally, I can see where he would think that scenario can happen. No matter what school Andrew Wiggins goes to, he will get his minutes, his shots, and all the publicity he wants. He will probably get the most media attention at Kentucky. With Kentucky’s games on national television, the hype for this coming season, and the other star players surrounding Wiggins, there would be permanent exposure and NBA Scouts living in Lexington for a season’s length. Wiggins can “build a legacy” at Kentucky, even with the plethora of talent that is already coming in. Why? Because he’s that good. If Wiggins goes to a school not named Florida State, they will immediately be national title contenders. If Wiggins comes to Kentucky, there will be serious considerations of an undefeated season and #9. Here is the full interview with Nick Wiggins:
