Andrew Wiggins Will Sign on Tuesday

wiggins-undecided

For about two days…

From his high school coach, Rob Fulford:

The signing will be closed to the public and most press, so feel free to bring your signs for outside the school, just don’t expect to get in.  But even if you can’t watch it live, mark your calendars, BBN: 5/14/13 is Andrew Wiggins Day.  Come on down.

    It will have historical implications if he picks UK!! A title is not a bad consolation to going undefeated though… GO CATS!!!!!!!!

    This kid seems humble and where ever he goes he will flourish!

  6. So will he announce before that or will we not know until he faxes the LOI?

    Who was the last significant Kentucky recruit who did not hold a press conference? Just saying…

    Gonna be honest here. My confidence on him signing for us has gone way down the past couple days. Just from what I’ve heard it appears as if he will be a Seminole. Still hope he signs for us though. I guess Fla St is the 2nd best option though.

    17: True, but Cal is also a “hype engineer”. I understand Wiggins is relatively more reserved than the other recruits, but this being such a personal event makes Florida State seem to have the edge.



  20. GoodChicken
    8:52 pm May 12, 2013 Permalink

    My confidence in him coming here has also dropped. He doesn’t seem like the type of player that normally comes to Kentucky. He seems like the guy who wants to stand out by being different. So with that I think he’ll pick Florida State.



  21. John Wall

    Everything that has come out of wiggins mouth while doing interviews indicates that the only school he truly wants to go to is uk



  23. WWWD
    8:53 pm May 12, 2013 Permalink

    17) if he’s a “small wedding type of person” would he really want to play in an environment like Kentucky? Don’t get me wrong I really want him at UK, but it just doesn’t sound right, not holding a press conference.

    I say his parents and best friend trumped playing at UK. I don’t know Andrew at all, but I feel he is too kind hearted of a kid to let them all down.I feel he will sign for FSU. It is a shame if I am right, because he would have been an instant fan favorite and regardless of what people say about playing time, if he is the warrior we all think he is, he would have been on the court when it mattered. I truly hope I am wrong.



  28. asa

    23. The way this recruiting process has drawn out and all the publicity he’s gained from it pretty much says he’s not afraid of the big stage. What I meant was that I don’t think he wants to hold a press conference and would rather just announce to the people close to him.



  29. Catlogic15
    8:59 pm May 12, 2013 Permalink

    With press conference comes questions from the idiot media. He’s answered enough stupid questions and perhaps doesn’t want to deal with it Tuesday. Can’t blame him.

    I am very hopeful that he does join up with UK. However, I am preparing for the likelihood that he doesn’t come. If that happens, let’s be respectful BBN! Let’s please not provide any ammo for other fanbases to call us obnoxious.

    Everything being said on this comment section is pure speculation. We should all know by now not to speculate when it comes to Andrew Wiggins because nothing is official. He hasn’t said a word, but yet Florida State seems like it has the edge.



  33. CommonSense
    9:02 pm May 12, 2013 Permalink

    28: Just because his recruiting process dragged out doesn’t mean he’s not comfortable being in the big stage. All he had to do was nothing. In fact, he has probably dragged this out so long BECAUSE he can’t make up his mind and he’s afraid of the backlash.



  34. David from Bowling Green
    9:03 pm May 12, 2013 Permalink

    Depends on if his parents “allow” him to choose or if they pressure him to follow their wishes. If it is his choice then I think it will be UK.
    I think the delay has been AW has been holding out in hopes his parents will see things his way.

    33. When you’re that big of a talent you’re not gonna be afraid of the big stage, and if you are you’re gonna have to learn to break that fear because that’s apart of the game and the NBA i’d say is a pretty big stage. This whole thing about him being scared sounds like the biggest load, he even said himself that it was.

    39. I don’t think he will ever be afraid when he is on a basketball court because that is his natural element. But I think back to how immature I was at 18 and try to imagine making a decision like this that had such an effect on so many people. He has been hounded for months by everyone wanting to know what he will do. The biggest choice I had at that age was where to find a job, and that really only mattered to me.

    To the worrywarts, we’ve known all along he wasn’t going to make a big to-do out of his announcement. Many suspected he’d just tweet it after he decided.

    This does not bode poorly for UK or for anyone else. While a fantastic player, he’s a private guy and doesn’t want tons of attention, though he knows he’ll need to get used to it eventually since he’ll be going to the NBA.

    Do you know anything about recruiting? You do realize this years crop of recruits were extremely weak, right? You do realize that this years crop is a class of studs, right? You do know the difference, right? You should also know that Chris Walker wanted to be a Cat and Cal turned him down, right?

    48. Well, Florida has had some pretty good players for the last six straight years and flamed out in the tournament, so whats up with that? Also if I recall, UK beat your Gators once this year, without Noel, so what does that say for them?



  53. GatorTard
    9:28 pm May 12, 2013 Permalink

    48 how’d getting the top recruits the previous three years work out for us? Keep holding on to the glimmer of hope that last year was the new standard for us, and we will look forward to crushing that hope and showing you that last year was the exception.

    9:35 pm May 12, 2013 Permalink

    I really hope we get Wiggins, but I think this whole one press member thing is not good for any of the big time schools. Probably reading too much into it like we all do, but I totally agree with 36. If we dont get him, please be respectful, only thing we do is hurt ourselves if we bash him for not making the logical choice. We are pre-season favorites next year regardless of where he goes, I’ll take that any day, but that would be some sweeeeet icing on the cake if we get him.

    His friend who is going to FSU tweeted earlier that this is going to be an amazing week or something to that effect. Don’t see him making that kind of statement if Wiggins was choosing UK. Still would love to see him choose us but I don’t expect it.

    Most of us would like and probably think every stud recruit should choose UK. After all we are UK. In reality we do get our fair share (especially the past 4 years). We would like to think Wiggins would want to choose the Big Blue and make history with the greatest class ever. I have no idea which school he will choose. No matter where he goes his NBA future is set. College choice will not impact this future. With this being said, I does seem like FSU may well be his choice. One and done so follow parents and attend their school for that one year. UK will still be UK. Hope he does choose UK but if not our egos will be scared for a few days and life will go on. Wish the young man the best and most of all -happiness!

    83) looserville won because the talent in the NCAA last year was obsurdly underpar. So next year when the talent level is at its highest in years we will see how you bitches end up. I’ll guarantee it won’t be what u expect. So quit trolling a UK website. You shouldn’t be that interested in UK. Btw wiggins will likely be a Cat, but if he isn’t we are still going to dominate.

    A new school could only be that damned loserville, I’m sorry but I have a 6th sense when it comes to things like that. ANYWHERE but there!

    After reading all the opinions on here I concor that with the parents involvement up to the last minute that they are holding out for Florida State, while Wiggins, who neither wants to “hurt” his parents or coach Cal, has been torn between the two for months. Evan Daniel even thinks the two schools in contention are Kentucky or FSU.

    At this late hour, barring his parents giving in to Andrew’s wishes, it appears they probably have won out and will get their way regarding him and he has consented to attend FSU. Aparently the introduction the past few weeks of North Carolina and Kansas were merely added into the mix by Andrew, as a means to get his parents to consent to another school besides FSU as a means of compromising versus going to UK.

    Since no such compromise was forthcoming, they held fast to FSU. Andrew realized his dream of playing for Cal was not to be
    without tearing his family apart.

    There is only one other logical excuse for choosing FSU over Kentucky, and that is financial
    considerations, FSU, is coached by Leonard Hamilton…just sayin’

    Cal, cannot offer and will not offer any inducements to attend UK. The watchdogs even sift through the Calipari trash cans,
    it would be immpossible to cheat even if he wanted to.

    So, if he announces for FSU, Mama & Daddy win out, and the cash trail will be well hidden you can be certain.

    This rumor of a new school is hopefully just a wild rumor.

    Everybody just calm down!! Andrew Wiggins is going to be a WILDCAT Tuesday!! It’s just a bunch of idiots trying to persuade him to go anywhere but UK! So what if Meyer, 24/7 and a few others are scaring all UK fans, just because they have feeling or a hunch that he’s going to be loyal to his family!! Look I say Andrew knows exactly what he’s doing! He, of course, wants to be able to practice against the best everyday!! Cal will help him improve his game, and polish his skills, thus getting him ready for the next level!! And of course, he wants to be a part of the greatest recruiting class in the history of the NCAA!! And anybody in their right mind knows he wants a Championship ring!! So now there u have it! Come 12:15 Tuesday, he will be a KY WILDCAT!!

    My favorite basketball coach (who led his team to a state championship) once said, if you want to be the best, you have to play with the best players possible, and you have to play the most competitive teams and the most competitive schedule possible. If Andre Wiggins wants to improve his chances in the NBA draft. He needs to play with the best…THE KENTUCKY WILDCATS…
