Effect of Andrew Wiggins’ Decision on 2013 College Basketball Season
When Andrew Wiggins announced he’s going to play for Kansas, the entire structure of the college basketball world shifted drastically. The Jayahwks are now a top five team with the top recruit in the country joining two other top-15 players to go along with two others in the top 50. Besides Wiggins, the group includes Joel Embiid, Wayne Selden, Conner Frankamp, Brannen Greene and Frank Mason.
But how did his decision affect the schools that didn’t get him? Kentucky shouldn’t care because John Calipari‘s NBA factory got five of the top 10 recruits in the country and the Wildcats are still the preseason No. 1.
North Carolina easily could have taken the leap back into national supremacy, but the Tar Heels will find a way to remain relevant.
Finally, the matchup everyone wanted to see regardless is still going to happen on November 12 when Wiggins and Kansas face Jabari Parker and Duke. These two top recruits faced off a couple of times in high school, but the stakes will be much higher in this top-10 contest.
