Top college basketball prospect Wiggins picks KU

The News & Observer
Andrew Wiggins, regarded as the top college basketball prospect in years, announced on Tuesday that he will play next season at Kansas. Wiggins’ other three finalists were North Carolina, Florida State and Kentucky.
Wiggins, the 6-foot-7 forward from Huntington (W.Va.) Prep, provided no indication of which school he was favoring, and so his signing with Kansas was met with surprise. Florida State, which is where his parents met and where his father played basketball, had been considered the favorite.
Wiggins made public his decision during a small, private ceremony at his school. The announcement was not televised because of Wiggins’ desire to avoid the spotlight.
His decision to attend Kansas means that UNC will avoid facing Wiggins next season. The Tar Heels will play against his other two finalists — at home against Kentucky in December, and at Florida State.
