Nothing in the world of NCAA men’s basketball recruiting mattered until today, as the presumed No. 1 recruit, Andrew Wiggins, finally made his decision about which school he’d attend for one year before declaring himself eligible for next year’s NBA Draft. A 6-8 forward, Wiggins was the American Family Insurance ALL-USA Player of the Year and averaged 23 points per game for Huntington Prep, and his slam dunk mixtape had some people calling him “The Canadian Jordan”.
Every bigtime program in the nation was recruiting this 18-year old phenom, including Florida State, which had its best and brightest (above) turning up the fire for his recruitment. And a lot of people predicted that he’d follow in the footsteps of other bigtime one-and-doners like Anthony Davis and Nerlens Noel by attending Kentucky.
But they were all wrong, as Wiggins announced that he will play for the Kansas Jayhawks next season. In the wake of his decision, there is a ton of hate being spewed at Wiggins on Twitter right now, so I thought we’d examine one of my favorite hateful Tweets and shake our heads at some others.
