Florida State, Kentucky Vying For Andrew Wiggins

via roundballdirect.com

The top high school basketball recruit in the nation Andrew Wiggins is still deciding whether to classify himself as a 2013 or 2014 recruit. Both Florida State and Kentucky are waiting to see what he decides.

Andrew Wiggins, the top high school basketball recruit in the nation, has two teams vying for his commitment. The Florida State Seminoles and the Kentucky Wildcats are at the forefront of his recruiting and are awaiting word on whether or not he will reclassify as a Class of 2013 recruit.

Both Wiggins' parents, former NBA player Mitchell Higgins and two-time Olympic silver medalist runner for Canada, Marita Payne, attended Florida State. Andrew Wiggins' high school coach, Rob Fulford, says that he won't make a decision without his parents:

Andrew's really at this point, he doesn't want to make any decisions without his parents, which is obviously a smart move on his part. He just has to get in front of his parents and they need to have a conversation to get that process started on exactly what it's going to be.

Fulford believes that Wiggins could have been drafted at No. 2 behind former Kentucky player Anthony Davis. He doesn't necessarily believe that Wiggins needs the one year in college to improve his game much.
