Watch the interview on the recruiting section of ESPN. Little to say about Kentucky and raving about FSU. It sounds clear FSU will be his choice.
These girls deserve some credit...
Wiggins dad played there ,that might be another reason why he wants to go there......But most of the highly touted high schoolers in Florida dont want to play there...They say Hamilton hasnt done a good job of helping players develope..And dont like the plays he runs...
Yea i have really heard of any top players going there. I am surprised no one is interested in texas, when their coach says he is focused on developing players for the NBA.
I think with UK somewhat not yet living up to expectations, there could be a possible logjam of talent at UK if current players arent in a good position to declare. Think that would effect his decision?
I saw the interview, and all he said was Kentucky is a definite one and done school, and Florida State is a school that develops great players and both his parents went there. He didn't make anything more clear.
I hope Ian Miller and Oakaro White decide to stick around for their seniors this if Wiggins does take his talents to FSU. That will be a tough team if they stay and the two talented freshman Boris Bojanovski and Aaron Thomas develop.
Basketball wise, why would anyone choose FSU over UK ever? Seriously it's not even close at all. Calipari has proven he will prepare you for the NBA, plus you will win and have a shot at a title, crazy loyal fans/boosters, great facilities, plenty of former UK players in the NBA, teammates will be NBA players. Plus Wiggins shouldn't worry about playing time, he going to be the best player, unless he doubts he that good?
But FSU is a really nice school, campus is nice, weather is warm, family ties, hot girls galore (although UK has plenty of hotties too). Maybe at FSU he'll be more of "the man", although at UK he would still be the best player it wouldn't be as clear as it would be at FSU.
Why go to UK and be just another one of Calipari's highly touted recruits when you can go play at your parent's alma mater with your best friend and dominate the college game in a historic fashion? He'll have way more touches at FSU because he won't be playing with other potential top 5 picks (Harrison twins and James Young). Plus Wiggins is already NBA ready now and only needs college because of the stupid rule in place. And yes Calipari has a track record of putting players in the NBA, but let's be honest 85% of them would have went no matter what school they went to
One of these things is not like the other...
Never rule out Kentucky. A lot can change in the next couple of months when dealing with the decisions of 17 year olds.
I'll believe he goes to FSU (where I want him to go) once he actually says he's going there...actually until he signs his LOI (Terrence Jones committed to Washington for about 3 hours).
Again. Never rule out Calipari and his methods of persuasion.
Why would you want him to go to FSU? They're never on TV.
Furthermore, we're talking about a team with little to no tradition, little historical success (1 Final Four appearance), and they're god awful this year (lost to Mercer and South Alabama at home!!!)
Please go anywhere else but Florida State, Mr. Wiggins!
Hold your horses. It's not official until the 1 hour "Decision" TV special sponsored by Vitamin Water.
Maybe Kentucky is losing its luster with this god-awful team they are currently putting out there...
This year's Kentucky's team isnt awful..They just havent found their indentity or roles yet....But they still have the tlent to at least make the Elite 8,If Harrow continues to play well.....
