Andrew Wiggins Will Likely Go Pro After 2013-14

by Bill DiFilippo / @bflip33

Well, that didn’t take long.

With Kansas’s season set to kick off in a week, star freshman recruit Andrew Wiggins appears to have already made up his mind about whether or not he’ll go pro after this season.

In an interview with ESPN the Magazine, the nation’s No. 1 recruit said that he wants to enjoy his final year of school and laid out his goals for the next 12 months.

From ESPN:

In an interview for ESPN The Magazine’s college basketball preview issue, Wiggins was asked what he’s enjoyed most since he arrived at Kansas.

“I would say just being able to enjoy my last year of school,” Wiggins said.

The 6-foot-8 wing is widely considered a lock to be the top pick in the 2014 draft if he declares.

He was asked his goals for this season.

“Win another championship, a national championship,” he said. “Follow in Anthony Bennett’s footsteps of going No. 1.”

While Wiggins has yet to suit up in an official game for the defending Big XII champions, it appears that he already has his sights set on the NBA.

    Genuine question, what kinda courses do these players typically do at college? Just any kinda wishy-washy degree just so the college can suit them up?

    He’s right. The money is on the table, he might as well grab it while he can. I was in favor of guys playing four years of college but f…k that, get paid while you can. You can always complete your degree in the summer. Besides there are a boatload of terrific courses (MIT for instance) that you can take online. (If you are motivated of course but that’s another story)
