Andrew Wiggins still doesn’t know, and neither does anyone else

 

The Nike Hoop Summit has been a positive experience in the past for Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins really burst onto the scene last year for the World Team when he led his team to a victory by pouring in a team-high 20 points. Wiggins will look to repeat some of that magic tomorrow night as he once again will lead the World Team against some of the best American high school basketball stars in the country.

Tomorrow night will be Andrew Wiggins’ final basketball game as a high schooler. Wiggins plans to leave on a good note, “I wouldn’t want to play my last game and lose.” Wiggins’ goal is to change the World Team’s luck by winning in consecutive years for the first time in Nike Hoop Summit history.

Although this will be Wiggins’ final game before making his decision, which at one point was thought to potentially be announced at the event, Wiggins wants to make sure everyone knows that his decision has still not been made (regardless of what many have been saying). He told Michael Grange of Sportsnet.com, “Anyone who says they know where I’m going is a liar. I don’t know where I’m going, so they can’t know where I’m going.”

Wiggins’ teammates speak very highly of him and his motivation for the upcoming game. “He really takes on whatever responsibility is needed,” said teammate Roy Rana. “…He’ll have the flag on his jersey and he’ll take it seriously. He’s such a giving person… it’s not really about him, it’s what he can give others.”

    There are rumors that he is also considering 2 or 3 schools not on his final list.

    Dudes know where he wants to go months ago!! Holding out like this = DRAMA QUEEN, ATTENTION SEEKER! Go ahead, go somewhere other than UK…. Who gives a damn!!!

    Folks he will pick UK. Going to meet with the other schools next week to tell them thanks but no thanks in person. Very adult thing to do.

    Me thinks he wants to play for Wichita State with his brother!

    JK, I really think he logically knows he MUST play for UK.

    If he is so great and really is the next Lebron, he should go to a school with only one or two good players. Grow a set and take an average team to a title.

    I have felt good about him for a long time. I still think he picks UK, but I would not be shocked if he picked somewhere else.

    I really don’t care where he goes anymore. He’s an attention seeker and would be cancerous on a good team like UK or UNC.

    He’s been committed to UK since October, but Calipari agreed to keep it quiet in order to maximize and help promote his brand. Andrew Wiggins will commit to UK either Wednesday or Thursday this week. Get ready to celebrate even though this deal has been settled for a while now.

    I don’t know about y’all, but take a break on the Wiggins post. We get that he doesen’t know yet. I’m personally sick of looking at the site and seeing the same damn post everyday

    #7 lol, so you mean Wiggins should do the complete opposite of what Lebron did even tho he is the next Lebron? Lebron went to the Heat so he could play with enough good players to finally compete for a title

    They got the second Boston Marathon bomber, wounded but alive. Dude was holed up in a boat on a trailer in someone’s back yard. People of Boston are out in the streets cheering and clapping for the cops and military personnel. Great scene.

    If his college coach is supposed to know where he is gong at this point, why doesn’t he know?

    KSR shows more love to Wiggins then they do our kids coming next year like Willis and Hawkins who actually played in the Kentucky Derby Classic tonight. How about getting off Wiggins sack for a couple days, and actually supporting the kids that are already signed and WANT to be a Wildcat!!

    Great and very informative post you have shared with us i like this blog post.

    He knows once he commits somewhere other than Kentucky his “significance” to college basketball drops 90% because of the BBN. So he’s going to wait till the last minute to do it. We are fine without him. Stop all the drama.

    Yea that makes sense call 3 coaches from UNC/Ku/FSU just to tell them thanks but no. Wouldn’t a phone call be more professional instead of dragging 3 coaches to his high school just to say that? That would be a waste of the coaches time and money. Cal already had his final visit on Wiggins and all 3 coaches are getting in one more pitch. If Cal had anymore allowed visits he would be there next week also
    Just have to except the kid hasn’t decided yet.

    We’re getting his high school coach and he is coming to the Ville!

    22… Hahaha that’s hilarious. Nice try… His coach already said that if he were to be hired by one of the schools, wiggins wouldn’t be able to go there

    looks like October will roll around, and he’ll be sitting home, unable to pick a school….

    Gotta love some of our idiot fans who say they hope he goes
    elsewhere and that he’s a drama queen. Please, go cheer for
    another team. You don’t know this kid at ALL. Maybe he’s just having a really tough time making one of the biggest decisions of his life. He seems like a great kid in all his interviews and he’s insanely talented, and would take this team from being great to unbeatable. Saying you don’t want him on our team just shows your ignorance.

    23, I heard him say that too… why would that be? Cal hired Milt Wagner at Memphis to get DaJuan, and I believe Jamal Magloire’s high school coach was hired at uk….

    I don’t know his motives and don’t really care. I’ve just honestly become bored with it and don’t follow as much. We’ll be fine either way so whatever happens happens.

    25 – they’re probably trolls.

    Let me really stir things up: He should go to Texas Tech and play for Tubby. 🙂

    Just kidding (unless that’s really what he wants to do)…he needs to make his own decision. We would love to have him at Kentucky obviously but he has to live his own life…sometimes we lose the human side of things – this is an individual life we are talking about here. So Mr. Wiggins – if you think you would be happy at Kentucky – please come! If not, best of luck to you wherever you go. Sorry you are being hounded by so much media and the rumor mill.

    Rixter – A NCAA rule implemented in Jan. 2010 states that any Division I school that hires a high school, junior college or AAU coach for an entry-level position will be prohibited from recruiting players from that coach’s program for two years.

    big decision, what a bunch of bullshit. he’s going to a school for a 1 year pitstop, just pick UK, your best chance for a title and get it over with.
