Andrew Wiggins: The Decision

thedecision

The long-awaited Andrew Wiggins decision is less than an hour away and fans are dying to hear the news. The final word is expected to come around 12:15 ET from a private ceremony in Huntington Wv. and we’ll have plenty of Wiggins chatter leading up to grand finale of his recruitment.

So gather around, friends, and join me for a running diary of predictions, gossip and nonsense as we sweat out these final moments…

 

12:10 p.m.

KANSAS!???????

He’s at the table…

12:05 p.m.

The crowd is gathering…

(via @KeithMorehouse)

 

12:02 p.m. 

Rob Bromley is in Huntington.

That has to be a good sign, right?

 

11:59 a.m.

Evan Daniels tweeted, “As of 10:00 this morning, Andrew Wiggins had not told his parents, according to his coaches.”

Interesting.

 

11:51 a.m.

The sports director from WSAZ-TV in Huntington made his way into the building. Here’s the scene from his view:

That’s a lot of chairs. Did he invite Canada?

 

11:46 a.m.

The KSR radio show is on fire this morning as Matt, Ryan, Shannon and Maria call celebrities for their predictions for Andrew Wiggins. We’ve heard from a nervous Josh Hopkins, ER‘s Noah Wyle, former WCW announcer Tony Schiavone, our friend Bomani Jones, Erin Calipari, Barry Booker, the Sklar Brothers and many more. Tune in to via the live stream shortly south of this post.

    FSU makes some since as it gives him a chance to basically hold off growing up: he gets to sail thru a year of BB playing with his best friend, making his parents happy and jacking up shots…all the way to the no. 1 overall pick

    If he doesn’t pick KENTUCKY then let him pick UNC. Lets play!

    12:01 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    We have the best class EVER regardless so I can’t wait to see the delusional fans thinking all is lost if we don’t get Wiggins. It’s both embarrassing and funny at the same time. Congrats to Cal on what’s already been done. I hope we get him but its not the end of the world if we don’t. Hey at least he’s not going to Louisville or Florida.

    They just sounded the tornado alarm in Louisville to let everyone know Wiggins is coming.

    Noah Wyle is a bit random. Is he a UK fan?

    Or is he just pimping Falling Skies everywhere? (Hey, I watch. Also watched his Librarian movies.)

  52. kentuckyjeff
    12:12 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    I say he’s going to Kansas.. The only thing that ticks me off is that he told Cal that he was coming so Cal passed on the Gordan kid that signed with AZ.. grrrrr…. Cal won’t make that mistake again



  53. Han
    12:12 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    Any chance Cal picks up one of the Transfers out there, or does he just give the schollie to Polson now?

  55. Han

    52) Wiggins would’ve played the 3 here, Gordon the 4. Cal took Randle over Gordon.

    I totally see why he picked Kansas. I mean that worked out really well for top ranked guys like Xavier Henry and Josh Selby, right…?

    Best of luck to Wiggins, but he will not be meeting his goal of winning a title next season.

    UK plays UNC. UNC plays FSU. Maybe since Kansas doesn’t play the 3 he chose them idk? Well I hope Kansas plays UNC or UK in the tournament. I’d like to see James Young D up on Wiggins. I think Young will be a really good perimeter defender.

    Did you purposely schedule the world’s longest commercial break for now…including two promos for the actual show we are missing?

    Well, UK started the morning with greatest recruiting class in history, and we will end the day with….the greatest recruiting class in history! Wiggens will likely be a footnote.

    Nice timing on the 37 consecutive commercials, Matt.

    Good luck, Andrew (unless you play UK next year). I don’t understand your reasoning, but it’s yours to make. See you in Dallas.

    Ironic that we have an endless stream of drinking commercials as we miss out on a top recruit. Still, I’m good with the the guys we have.

    12:23 pm May 14, 2013 Permalink

    I don’t think it matters much with this group who plays the 3 or the 4 or 5 or 2 .. I mean honestly this is a multi talented group. size, strength, speed and so on. Cal just signs the best athletes which is why I wanted Gordon. The road to number 9 !



  84. somervillain

    -Harrison retrieves it, over to Harrison, down to Randle. Dunk! And that puts the exclamation point on Kentucky’s dominant win

    Can you say! SELF CENTERED SHOW BOAT! I said it a month ago on this board that he would not go anywhere that he was not the star of the show! He would rather be the star of the show than to win at the end!
