Thamel: Wiggins leaning Florida State for a low key college experience

Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel took a much-needed break from glorifying online relationships between two Samoan dudes to weigh in on the recruitment of Andrew Wiggins.

Right now many of you are asking, “Well, why do I give a flying Dirk Minniefield about anything Pete Thamel writes about Andrew Wiggins?”  And that’s a very fair question.  But here’s an excerpt from the article anyway:

Multiple people around Wiggins hinted that there’s a chance he’d choose Florida State, where both his parents attended, for a more low key college experience. Fulford said that Huntington Prep played six games in the state of Kentucky this year and drew nearly 35,000 people total in those games.

“We played in North Carolina, we had seven or eight people in Carolina shirts,” Fulford said, noting that North Carolina and Kansas are also suitors for Wiggins. “We’re in Kentucky and we’ve sold out three 6,000 seat gyms. They’re crazy. They’re crazy in a good way. They show how much they want you. It’s overwhelming. He just hates attention.”

This could be the first time the spotlight at Kentucky has had a negative impact on a player’s recruitment, although I believe the family ties are what’s really pushing him towards Tallahassee.

Don’t sleep on Calipari and Kentucky, though. Not yet. At the end of the day, it’s about what place is best for the recruit’s future, and Florida State doesn’t hold a candle to the opportunities Coach Cal creates in Lexington. Wiggins would be crazy to play in Tallahassee, where he’ll draw double and triple-teams every night. He’d get buckets at UK in a balanced offense while developing his game in practice against top talent everyday.

Come on down?

    I agree with you Drew that UK has the best tools in place for Andrew. But he is gonna be the top pick regardless of where he goes, double teams or not. He doesn’t necessarily need all those tools.

    Can’t blame him either way. Kentucky is not for everybody and we will be fine. The last thing I am worried about is recruiting in the Calipari era.

    If he can’t handle the attention of being a highlighted player for Kentucky then how the hell is he going to make it in the NBA?

    Hmm…the guy wants one low profile year, …but then immediately after will become the number pick in the NBA draft and all the attention in the world, shoe contracts, Nike commercials, etc. May be true, but I’m not 100% sold on the idea that he doesn’t want the attention.

    After his one year in college, he should play in the Antarctic Basketball League.

    Wiggins logic makes no sense. If he is the player that everyone thinks he is (and he is) then he is going to have loads of attention on him where ever he decides to go, and for the rest of his life. Might as well get over his fear now because he’s doing the wrong thing with his life if he can’t handle a lot of attention.

  14. El Pollo Loco
    1:51 pm February 7, 2013 Permalink

    All this article does is confirms that Thameltoe is snooping around Wiggins and trying to take him down. His editors likely got pissed and told him that they need something for all this time he’s wasting and to get something else out to deflect his Te’o crap. So, he wrote an article slightly disguised as a feature that was filled with underlying jabs at the kid, his parents and his background along with Canadian basketball.

    This is clearly just buying him more time. He’s still a douche.



  15. Bsb Coach
    1:51 pm February 7, 2013 Permalink

    Not that Cal needs any help (he doesn’t) but I would take the approach that UK is a good precursor, or medium if you will, for the NBA. And the idea that he can flourish w/o being the focus of entire defenses is very important. Plus, he will go against top talent every day in practice. (And as Drew said) and what is that worth if your goal is the NBA?

    I feel like he’ll get more attention at FSU where he’ll easily be the best player there by far. But at UK he’ll be the best but still only one of 6 or 7 great players, thus tking the pressure off of him and allowing his game to just be one cog in the machine.



  23. Kevin C.
    1:59 pm February 7, 2013 Permalink

    All the talent in the world can’t help you grow a pair. If he really can’t handle the attention, we simply can’t use him. Good luck at FSU, Andy.

    At least at Kentucky he could share the spotlight with the other guys. At Florida State it is only him. All the expectations and pressure is on his shoulders. It won’t be as low key as he thinks.

Thamel is a sad-sorry excuse for a journalist yet… I think we and KSR would do well to completely ignore his publicized-puke. The more we even acknowledge his unfortunate existence the more money and power we pour his way. Let’s resolve to never again even respond to an article of his here or anywhere.

    if he goes to FSU it is a still a win for Kentucky. Kentucky gets their pick of the top talent every year, and the guys we miss go to Kansas, Duke, UCLA, UNC to compete against us for a championship. If the next Lebron comes along and we miss him but he goes to a team that won’t be a top contender, it just puts more distance between us and the rest of the elite teams.

    Wiggins needs to decide if he wants to be a superstar. As a superstar your going to have attention and expectations no matter where you go. The kid needs to realize that UK will help prepare him for the NBA. He’s going to get a lot more attention in the NBA than he would at Kentucky. He needs to understand that at the next level he’s going to be in the spotlight.



  54. Big O
    2:36 pm February 7, 2013 Permalink

    Respect the young man’s personality and not wanting the attention. It is a no-brainer he is a one-n-done no matter where he goes to college. The talent is already there and pro teams sign on talent an potential. So the college he attends does not matter in respect to moving on after one year. That mindset does hurt UK’s chances. However, I just wonder how this young man will handle the attention he will receive as the #1 pick in the NBA and all the hype that goes with that business? UK could probably provide him with more experience on handling attention that is sure to follow him than Florida State. Food for though!



  55. UKIT
    2:36 pm February 7, 2013 Permalink

    Yeah, if Wiggins doesn’t like attention, maybe he should have taken up chess instead of basketball. Ya know espn doesn’t exactly pay that mutch attention to the chess bracketology. I would have suggested spelling bee for Wiggins, but hell, that’s even on tv now.

    Not buying the ‘no attention’ thing that is being promoted around – that is the ONLY excuse for him (or anyone) not coming to UK.

    Also, let’s be honest – if FSU and Hamilton keep losing, who knows if Hamilton will be back.

    I’ve accepted the fact that Wiggins isn’t coming here. There’s been too much of a negative vibe around UK in his recruitment lately to think otherwise. I’d love to have him and welcome him with open arms but I’d be shocked if he announced he was bringing his talents to Lexington.

    This isn’t exactly new news. The kid’s on-court abilities are unrivaled by any current college players, much less high schoolers. But the off-court demeanor does matter, especially in Lexington. If he is getting anxious over 6,000 people in stands at a high school game, 24,000 screaming could be a problem in Rupp.

If Wiggins can’t handle the attention of BBN, then the attention he gets from women once he gets some NBA money in his pocket just may kill him.

    6 – I agree.

    Ok, let’s be real though, the best player out of HS since LeBron hates attention? That may be true, but like a duck that hates water, he’s going to have to deal with it the rest of his life, so he might as well embrace it. Plus, it’s not like he won’t get attention at FSU. The sure-fire #1 pick, standing out from his average teammates as a superstar at a college full of hot/money hungrey coeds…. ooooooooh, OK. Yeah Pete, that’s definitely what it is, “he hates attention.” I take it old Petey had a little trouble sticking out to the other girls in the journalism group at Syracuse.

    He’ll have attention on him regardless, but there isn’t anything that comes close to the fishbowl these kids are in at KY. Not everyone is cut out for that and the kid needs to do what’s best for him. It didn’t hurt Shabazz to say no, and it wouldn’t hurt Wiggins either.

    As basketball fans we all appreciate how blessed Andrew is. He is LeBron 2.0. His brother gets it. Mixing Cal with his talents for a year is a business decision. Besides, he will still be the first pick even if he plays for the Carleton University Ravens in Halifax in front of 1,500 people escaping the weather.

    If he hates attention, then he better hope for a playing career overseas somewhere, because he will be under an even bigger microscope playing in the league. If he aspires to play in the NBA, then not only would Kentucky be best for his draft and marketing stock, but Lexington would provide the ideal “transition stage” for the sort of attention and scrutiny he is bound to receive in the NBA.

    If Pete Thamel says he’s going to FSU then I gotta believe he’s coming to UK

    So his sources are saying “there’s a chance” Wiggins goes to Fla St. Well my sources are saying there is a chance if Thamel had on lipstick and a dress that Sex in Nursing Homes would be taking him home tonight…oh who are we kidding there is no chance that he wont anyway.

    Thamel Toe says FSU and I believe him because he has no bias at all when it comes to Kentucky

    So if Wiggins doesn’t like attention what is he going to do in the NBA? Also, did anyone read his twitter he just said, “don’t believe everything you hear, don’t believe everything you read”

    So he doesn’t want to go to a school where he’ll share the attention with his class/entire team. But he’ll go to a school where he’ll be THE face, #1 on the scouting reports, the automatic team’s go-to, only superstar on team, etc? And he’ll be one and done and off to the pros? That makes sense…

    No problem.
    If the fella hates attention, then indisputably KENTUCKY is NOT the school for him.

    Am I the only one disgusted that Kyle Wiltjer wasn’t mentioned as one of the bright Canadian players mentioned?
