Kansas Jayhawks Coach Bill Self Says Andrew Wiggins “Should Welcome the Expectations”

Andrew Wiggins High School Basketball: McDonald's All American Games

Recently read the excellent piece below by USA Today addressing Andrew Wiggins and the expectations folks have for him next year.

“We have recruited other good players before, but we have not had anybody with this type of attention at all,” Bill Self said to USA Today. “I kind of feel for him. But the whole thing is, he is just a kid. I told him the other night, he had not made a basket yet and the attention he has received is based on potential, it’s not based on anything he has done. But I think he should welcome the expectations.”

If Wiggins welcomes the expectations, then he should be expecting to go all the way. His high school coach Rob Fulford certainly sensed that desire in his former forward and it should be exciting to see if Wiggins can deliver.
