NCAA Rumor: Wiggins set to commit to Florida State?

Source tells me Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 recruit in the 2013 ESPN 100, will commit to Florida State. Nothing official as of yet.

If Wiggins goes there, they would be a good team. Without him though, not really. This past year they didn't make the tourney and only went 18-16. Out of all the teams left for Wiggins, they're the worst of the bunch. He would be a star there by himself though, kinda like Kevin Durant when he went to Texas.

Florida State is not known for their basketball program, they're known for their football program and baseball program.

To try to make more sense of it for you.

Wiggins at Florida State is like LeBron when he was with the Cavs and had little help.

If Wiggins wanted to win a title in his one year at college, he would go to Kentucky. If he goes to Kentucky, they would be more stacked then when LeBron went to the Heat.

I hope he goes to Florida State though with the few colleges he has left as his choices. Better for competition, and Kentucky doesn't need him, they already have 3 of the top 5 HS Seniors going there, they don't need 4 of the top 5(Totally Kentucky has 6 of top 20 HS prospect, Wiggins would make 7/20, that is uncalled of).

his dad went to florida state and Kentucky is a bit crowded for a single player to shine. Also, his teammate from high school (another Canadian Xavier Rathan-Mayes) is going to Florida State







the ladies wanted him. so he had to go

I think MSU and UCONN and the CUSE are good fits,but my prediction is UNC

Wow, looks like Wiggins could be Kentucky now? If so, Kentucky has just pulled off the best basketball class I can remember of. This is like the Fab 5 class for Michigan.

Still some way to go but usually when a prospect cancels all his visits but one it means something.......
they already have the #6 overall player at SF. If UK gets Wiggins they will have 7 of the top 18 players (5 of the top 7). much better than the Fab 5.

No doubt. Looks like Wiggins might have cancel all his visits though, even Kentucky so maybe not a sign he is going there or not........I pray he doesn't go there.


But IF Kentucky does get him, like you said, it would be the best class ever on paper. From scout.com rankings, Kentucky already has the #1 PG, #1 SG, #1 PF, and #1 C. If Wiggins would go there, they would add the #1 SF. You can't do much better than that and they have 3 more commits to go on top of that.

Respect if he wants to go to a lesser team and make them a contender. Maybe he will be the "new NBA". And change the LBJ way of stacking your team to win rings.

Not sure what people mean when they Wiggins would be "creating his own legacy" by going to FSU. Florida State already has a legacy.

Would be cool to see one of these top rated players in a smaller school. They're only going to school for 1 year and a player like Wiggins is almost NBA ready.

I would go to University of Hawaii, chill at the beach and play some ball

I'd go wherever I thought I could be developed best or the NBA. Big picture. One year of grown men, parasites, groupies and "friends of the program" fawning over you? Fine, but get ready for a 15-20 year career while you're at it.

From the sounds of it, Wiggins could commit on Tuesday.

Many think Florida State, but some say the dark-horse is Kansas.

I'd be surprised if he didn't go to FSU. It would be awesome to see him pair up with Xavier Rathan Mayes
