Kentucky fans thought Wichita State junior guard Nick Wiggins was a wise man last summer when he said he thought Kentucky was the best spot for his brother, Andrew Wiggins. But now Nick Wiggins is rethinking where his brother, the nation’s No. 1 recruit, should go.
“I think both my parents would like him to go to Florida State University because that’s where my mom and my dad attended school so it would be pretty amazing to see him do that and I believe they would be happy with that decision,” Nick Wiggins told SNY.tv during an exclusive interview in at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta Friday where the Shockers were preparing to play Louisville today in the Final Four. “But I mean they would also be happy with anywhere that he goes to school.”
Andrew Wiggins is considering Kentucky, Kansas, Florida State and North Carolina. He said during the McDonald’s All-American Game he was not ready to make his college choice and might wait until May. His brother hopes he does it in the next “two week to three weeks” and would like to see make his announcement in an ESPN event like other top recruits have done even though he knows that likely won’t happen because of his brother’s personality.
Nick Wiggins told SNY.tv that with the loaded recruiting class UK already has, Kentucky might not be the best place for his brother “to go and shine like he wanted to” but did emphasize that was his opinion and not coming from his brother. At the McDonald’s Game, Andrew Wiggins seem to at least be considering just the opposite. “If I went to that team (Kentucky), we’d win it all, for sure, because there’s nothing anyone can do with me, Julius [Randle], the Harrison twins, Marcus Lee, Dakari [Johnson] and James Young,” Andrew said. ”That’s something special.”
