Kansas Jayhawks Commit Andrew Wiggins Sweepstakes Set To Begin This Fall

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

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Can you smell that? It is the smell of basketball and it is about to return this fall. NBA ball begins a bit before college basketball, so the first thing that will come to mind while watching those games is who the contenders are going to be. The next thing that will occur to me is which team appears to have the best shot in the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes. The Philadelphia 76ers come particularly to mind, but there are a host of teams that could be in the running. This is mainly due to a lack of talent, but there are several teams out there that are gearing up to tank next season. They have been deliberately negligent with how much talent they put on the floor and it is hard to sit with that as a basketball fan, but it is the reality of how you build a basketball team.

Wiggins was this year’s Gatorade high school athlete of the year and if he does as well as many are predicting, then he will be in consideration for some player of the year awards next season. Pro scouts have been salivating for Wiggins’ college career to commence, because now we will get some full game tape of him to process and more fully dissect his game. This is going to be a fun year everybody.
