Evan Daniels thinks Florida State is the current leader for Wiggins and other recruiting notes

In his live recruiting chat on Scout.com, Evan Daniels said he believes Florida State is in the best position for Andrew Wiggins right now.  The live chat opened up with a reader asking Evans where Wiggins will end up and when the decision will be made, and this is what he had to say:

It’s still a little early to know. If his recruitment ended today, I’d probably like Florida State’s position the best. But you can never count out Kentucky. UNC and Kansas have made moves for him. The next step for him is to actually visit those places. He will be a spring signee.

Also from Scout.com’s chat

— Recruiting analyst Brian Snow said Trey Lyles will go to “KENTUCKY, period, end of story.”

— Daniels said Texas and Florida lead for Julius Randle but he expects the top schools to change a number of times before Randle decides in the spring.

    We don’t want Randle or Wiggins anyway, too many character issues

    Hey Brian Snow, my profile over at ESPN doesn’t even have Kentucky listed as a school I’m considering. Get your facts straight.

    3. — No, ESPN needs to get their facts straight. I agree with Snow.

    I want Wiggins period…….even if that means no one else signs……with the verbals already given and wiggins its on like donkey kong. Wiggins on a different level than all other 2013 players. If he wants to have a chance to win title he will go to UK….if he does not he will go somewhere else. He has to know with the incoming players we have about a 75% chance of a title with him……they will figure out positions…….Harrisons, young, wiggins, Lee all 6’5″ or bigger they could play that line up against majority of teams. Very few college teams have legit dominating bigs. Rebounding should not be a problem with how athletic they all are and the size

    Remember when he said Brandon Knight was going to Florida or Teague to UL or Jones to UW or LAmb to KU or Noel to Gtown or Poythress to Vandy or…

    Florida State? Why in the world any top-ranked recruit go there? Talk about lack of fan support and an abyss for media coverage… it would be a good location for a player to go “hide”. Who would choose willingly to go play for Leonard Hamilton? Geez… REALLY??

    I’ll believe we don’t get 2 of the 3 of Randle, Wiggins and Gordon when it actually happens, regardless of what all the experts say. Experts always have their sources, and the sources are never the kid or their parents or anyone else that actually knows the decision.

    7) People go to schools like that so they can be THE guy. Even though people say Wiggins would be THE guy anywhere, fact is he’ll have to share the ball more at KY or UNC than somewhere like FSU.

    Here are Evan’s future opinions just to save everyone time: Kentucky is probably 3rd for (insert stud player). Louisville has a much better position for (insert stud player) than most think. Evan doesn’t intentionally mislead, he just thinks with his heart to often. He also has a bad habit of falling hook, line and sinker for almost all bad info he’s given.

    This guys no little. Lets have them guess where guys go then keep track. It’s a guessing game as if they knew and said then no recruits would tell them anything ever again. I love recruiting and following it but I do it by going to games and not subscribing to Scout and Rivals. I cancelled both memberships years ago. Go Cats.

    If we don’t get Wiggins or Randle there’s no chance in hell that we’ll win a title next year…PERIOD! We have to land one if not both. Very disappointing to read this… personally I think it’s all bullsh*t…I think we’ll get them both

    If we get 2 of 3 (Wiggins, Gordon, Randle) we have a strong chance to win the title next year. If we miss on both Wiggins and Randle I would be let down just cause I want to see an unstoppable team play for a chance to go undefeated!

    We have a shot at the title right now regardless of who else we sign, and you know we will get at least one more

    Its November, at this time last year the analyists were saying Muhammad was losing interest in UCLA because of their bad season. A lot can change in the next 5 months. Start worrying if you hear these reports in April.

    Evan Daniels is the most overrated recruiting analyst in the game. Why KSR believes this guy I’ll never know. He has been wrong on so many recruits. Wiggins will be a Cat.

    #14 Jones returns, have you ever considered that some of this years team will return will return to join join the Harrison twins and others? If Wiggins does go to Fla St. 1 man can’t win a national championship by himself. Just remember all players want to win a national championship before moving on. He won’t do it at Fla. St.
