    I know this kid is good, and I want him in UK blue next year but that video isn’t very impressive. Its just him dunking on a bunch of 5’6″ kids that offer nothing more than a small orange cone would. Again, I know he is good – but that video didn’t do it for me.

    I’m concerned he would be injury-prone. You know…hitting his head on the rim and all.

    The way he gets off the ground is amazing. There’s a couple of those dunks where it looks like is head is 5 inches above the rim.

    He looks pretty good. Is Cal interested in him? Could he be a preferred walk-on next year?

    I agree with you #3 in that the competition is obviously not very good. However, I think what this video showed really well is his athleticism and the complete control of every movement he had. He was at least a foot and a half above the rim on several of the alley-oops and put back dunks that he had. This video also showed how graceful – a la AD (but a little shorter obviously) – he is. He’s 6’8″ and from the footwork, moves, and ball handling skills, appears to have point guard level skills.

    If we get Wiggins, I will definitely Wig out.



  13. Alex
    12:48 pm March 27, 2013 Permalink

    What’s most impressive is his ball handling and shooting ability for his size. It’s like watching Kevin Durant.



  14. I'm confused
    12:50 pm March 27, 2013 Permalink

    A few weeks back, there was someone on here that told me to “Write It Down that Randle would pick Kansas”. So I’ve come across this written down passage on my notepad. What exactly is it that I’m supposed to do with this written down passage? Can it now be used as toilet paper?

    I like the part where he dunked the ball.



  17. Rob
    12:56 pm March 27, 2013 Permalink

    He’s the most explosive leaper I’ve seen since Vince Carter and is a better overall player. If he keeps his head on straight he’ll be a Jordan/Kobe type player in the NBA. I guess we could use that for a year at UK.



  18. Rob
    1:00 pm March 27, 2013 Permalink

    Willie is the only one who has a shot at the NBA this year but really needs to develop another year. Poythress and Goodwin are going to get a lot better practicing against these guys. Maybe they’ll have big Junior seasons for us so we can repeat. Honestly, Poythress has a spot on next years team in the rotation. If Wiggins is here, Goodwin will be sitting behind one of the Harrisions, Wiggins, and James Young. He may want to redshirt and work on his shot or transfer.

    Troll or not, it’s beyond stupid not to be impressed by this video. Does he dunk a lot? Obviously! He’s so freaking explosive it’s stupid. Why would he lay it up when he can throw it down on any given drive to the basket? Look at the ball handling: Elite PG level. Look at the stroke: High level SG status. This kid is the WHOLE package. NBA MVP written all over him.

    1:17 pm March 27, 2013 Permalink

    Naysayers need proof. Go watch the mix tape of Wiggins and Randle head to head at the peach jam last year….this kid has not touched his potential and Cal could make him the baddest man on the planet…Cal wants him to play in the all star games with the other UK signees and see how they fit together….if it goes well he will be a cat!!

    Sure he’s got some ability; but can he dunk? I’m sure the lane will be open all the time at the next level and most opponents will be little white guys.

    Looks a lot like MKG attacking the rim. A little more athletic, a better jump shot, and a better overall offensive game. Jesus Christ, I hope we get him!

    My family lives in Huntington, WV and have become close with Andrew Wiggins and taken the kid under our wing. We have met his parents a couple of times and they are very good people that honestly are open to him attending any of the final schools on his list. That being said, Andrew has become very close with a girl down in Tallahassee. He also wears FSU gear often but that is likely due to his parents being star athletes at the school and that he followed the school as a kid. When my wife asked him which school he liked the best overall, she said he did not hesitate to say FSU. He said UNC was a close second. With the girl attending FSU and his parents wanting him to follow in their footsteps, I think he ends up at FSU. He could surprise us a choose UNC or even UK, but I think it is a small chance. Our entire family are diehard UK fans and would love to see him play for Cal in Rupp Arena next season. We will do what we can to promote UK, but I think it will not help much.

    Lenny, haven’t you posted that exact comment within the past few weeks? If so, what are Wiggins’ thoughts on Randle joining the Cats? With Randle, the spotlight will be spread across the entire team. If he wanted to go to FSU wouldn’t he have declared earlier so that they could try to recruit other players on the fact that they have Wiggins? Is UNC a serious threat? I know he talks to Meeks on occasion, but it was always FSU and UK. His coach had to get him to check out the other schools so that he could see a few more places. So does he want a championship, or does he want the pressure of trying to carry a team to a potential tournament berth? I don’t think he would be so vocal about this decision. I don’t think he would tell your wife anything that she could leak. I also think his parents would have met you more than a few times if you “took the kid under your wing”. Also, how’d it allegedly get so close to a girl in Tallahassee? Also, if he wears FSU gear all the time, don’t you think there would be pictures posted? What…is he just wearing it around the house. I guess what I’m calling BS.

    Anymore tidbits on what harrow, WCS,Archie and Alex are going to do??? I hope Ryan does not transfer. We need him bad as a backup point guard. Harrison is prone to injury. I also heard Kyle might transfer to the Zags or Ducks. WCS will go to the draft. Anyone have some solid rumors???

  61. Linda Taylor
    2:57 pm March 27, 2013 Permalink

    53 (Lenny) – No matter how many times you post this we still won’t believe you. If he is so stuck on the FL girl then why did he start following tons of hot KY girls on twitter after his visit here? Word used to be that he was very serious about a girl at his school in WVa who was a year behind him in school so he would be more likely to go to UK so he could be closer to her for his one year in college and her final year of high school. Rumor and speculation is all any of this is. We will know when he pulls the trigger and makes his commitment.



  62. bmt22033
    2:58 pm March 27, 2013 Permalink

    Doesn’t it seem weird, though, that a kid who reportedly hates all the attention and spotlight has waited this long to commit? If you’re really going to FSU, why not just commit and end the whole process that you supposedly dislike?

    Damn…If UK gets Wiggins it’s over, you know every other team in the country is sick thinking they will have to play against UK next year. This team with Wiggins would not only beat teams, they would destroy teams. How would you like to be one of the kids at the small schools like Transy having to come in and play this team???

    Best high school player I have ever seen.Smooth as silk. Was Kobe that good in high school? I don’t know I never saw him play in high school. I saw video of lebron and he was great, bigger and stonger but not as fluid and certainly could’nt handle the ball as well or play point. Andrew I believe could play just about any position. UK sure looks like a great fit, the fans adore him and the talent for him to practice with day in and day out will be unparalleled. As a UK fan I hope he comes and would be the icing on the cake of a unprecedented recruiting class already.



  66. RealCatsFan
    3:21 pm March 27, 2013 Permalink

    I look at it like this: No matter where he goes, he is the likely consensus #1 draft pick after next season. If that is the case, why piddle away the season playing for an also-ran school, when he can hang out with and practice against the best of the best (some of whom might become his teammate on an NBA team someday), and also be a part of something historic in college BB?

    It’s funny @53 somebody was saying the exact same thing about Randle, nearly identical to what you are saying. Wiggins is UKs to lose. FSU is all but out of it, it is down to UK and UNC with UK leading 70/30. Wiggins most likely commits within the next 2 weeks, possibly sooner.

    #87 no dice on Gordon, he will not be wearing the Blue/White next year, unfortunately. Hawkins is definitely a possibility. Depends on how the roster shapes up in the next week or two maximum. Wiggins is a definite possibility. #62 just because someone doesnt want all the attention doesnt mean it wont take time to make a decision. A lot is weighing on him. He is battling his parents to an extent. His brother has been quoted saying he wants his brother to be a wildcat. I dont think it can have much to do with who is coming back because it wouldnt matter, he would play over anyone on the current roster as well as any of the recruits. I believe he just wanted to see the schools again one last time to make sure he is making what he feels is the right decision, not only for himself but his family. Wanted to bring parents to make them comfortable with his choice in the case he doesnt choose Fla St. Needless to say, the nation is awaiting his announcement. We can only hope that he has talked his parents into siding with him to come to UK. He is the Secretariat of hoops, and their is only one place for Secretariat to call home, Right?
    My educated guess is that he is a wildcat no later than March 13th!

    Two things I liked: First, a very soft jumper to go with the leaping/dunking ability which a lot of guys have. Second, how quickly he made it down the lane on his drives. Scored before help could get there. Bonus is that he seems to have his head on straight – the kind of players that do well at UK.

    Starting Line up

    Andrew Harrison at the Point.
    Goodwin at the 2 spot, being pushed by Aaron who can shoot.
    Wiggins at the 3 backed up by Young.
    Dr. Julius at the 4 backed up by Alex and Wiltjer.
    Since WCS will go pro, not sure who starts at center, but worse case we split between Lee and Johnson.
