A rumor popped up recently that Andrew Wiggins was down to two schools. The University of North Carolina Tar Heels and the Florida State Seminoles. The source is currently unnamed and apparently told this to Fivestarbasketball.com.
Lord, I hope this is true, because then the choice if very clear for Wiggins. Andrew, I know your parents were Seminoles and loved their time there, but you have a chance to play at the school the greatest basketball player of all time played at.
And if you play well, which you most certainly will, then you will get to meet Jordan and possibly even have a Nike contract coming your way as a resule.
Some scouts have claimed that his parents want him to follow their footsteps to Florida State; this may be true and Wiggins would surely have a blast playing there, but playing at Carolina would open doors for him that Florida State could not open.
This is the just the way these things tend to work. Join the Tar Heels; you will not regret it. And Chapel Hill fans? Don’t blame this kid if he leaves early. He is already primed for the pros and the fact we might have a year with him is only a blessing. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens here.
