The NEXT NEXT NEXT big-time recruit

  1. North Carolina
  2. Duke
  3. Syracuse
  4. Florida State
  5. Kentucky
Looking over that list of colleges two things jump out at me.  First, those are some of if not THE top basketball programs in college athletics, all except 1 with a longtime coach who is surely a Hall of Famer. Second, Florida State?

Andrew Wiggins is a big time recruit. He's the kind of recruit that could change the course of a little known program forever. But, that's NOT going to happen. This superstar ultra-athletic wing is going to take his place at one of the big-time elite powerhouses in the ACC or SEC, spend a year showcasing his talents in some made for TV match-up like Kentucky vs. North Carolina in the Carrier Classic this past year and then off to the glitz and glamour of THE LEAGUE. The chance that we get to see him on a college campus for his sophomore season probably only happens if god forbid he gets a serious injury and misses significant time(although this didn't deter Kyree Irving) or he develops a strong bond with his team and they don't win the championship but would be the consensus favorites should he choose to stay.


If Wiggins decides to remain in the 2014 class instead of reclassifying to 2013 as some are suggesting he should/will do it could be just the right time for an electric, dynamic, high flying wing to run the break with 2013 commits Nate Britt and Isiah Hicks.
