Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Andrew Wiggins is somewhere in USA Today’s new piece on Andrew Wiggins. Well, everything except where he is going and whether or not he’ll reclassify.
Eric Prisbell writes about Wiggins’ life as a high school junior in and outside of the spotlight, his addiction to Eggo waffles, and how he ended up in Huntington, West Virginia.
There’s even a little bit about which way he is leaning and who will help him decide:
Despite the public interest, Wiggins’ college decision has been on the backburner. Wiggins had not spoken at length about it with Fulford until Friday, when the coach asked, if Wiggins had to choose a school right now, which it would be. Wiggins had no idea. And he said he was unsure of which schools were recruiting him.
Though Fulford has told Wiggins that he believes Wiggins should enter college next season, Wiggins said his final decision will be made in consultation with his parents in Canada.
Wiggins’ host family, meantime, is divided when asked if they’d be surprised if he returned to high school.
“I would be,” Scott Thomas said. “It’s like jumping in a pool. The water is cold at first, but I think he will jump in and be fine.”
Countered Lesley Thomas: “I wouldn’t be. Mentally, he questions himself, and if you question whether you are ready, you are not ready … I think if he goes, it’s because he is pushed, not because he’s ready.”
Give it a read and then continue praying that he comes to Kentucky.
The kid is unreal.
