The Victory Formation:
Andrew Wiggins has finally made his choice. For those of you who don’t know, Wiggins is the top rated high school basketball player in the class of 2013, and he’s arguably the most highly touted prospect since LeBron James. And this morning, Wiggins finally announced where he will attend school in the fall. Amongst a small group of friends, family, and just one media member, Wiggins revealed that he has committed to the Kansas Jayhawks for the fall. This announcement comes as a bit of surprise because Kentucky, Florida State, and North Carolina were seen as the favorites. Wiggins, who won both the Naismith Prep Player of the Year and the Gatorade National Player of the year awards, joins a stacked recruiting class that will no doubt make Kansas an early Final Four favorite.
