There is usually a lot of hype surrounding top high school prospects and their decision about where to play in college. Andrew Wiggins was no different. He signed with Kansas over a litany of top college programs.
Apparently, he was worth the hype. Gary Parrish at CBSSports.com passes on what he heard when Wiggins took the court for the first time at a Kansas practice.
"Wow!" the source said. "Like watching a video game. He'd be the No. 1 pick this year."
And, remember, this is the same KU that just had Ben McLemore, a prospect so talented he could go No. 1 in next week's NBA Draft. But not if Wiggins was in it. Because this 6-foot-7 wing is apparently operating at a different level, and that's precisely why he should be a preseason First Team All-American and the top pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.
