You have no favorite boards.
With his UNC official visit done, the last of Andrew Wiggins' scheduled official visits is in the books, leading to the belief the recruiting home stretch is upon him.
Those last quotes are very reassuring!
I heard He hit it off real well withMeeks real well. UNC is def in a good position IMO!
I'm not expecting him to be a Tar Heel but I'm hoping like heck he becomes one! His dad being from Kinston, that's near where I grew up and it's 99.9% Tar Heel country in our region and I think that may factor into this decision. I know his dad went to FSU but I'm sure he would have rather have gone to UNC but we can't get em all. The next best thing, or even better thing would be to see his son with that interlocking NC on his jersey! Come on Mitchell you know you wanna be VIP at the dean dome and run elbows with those Tar Heel greats you and I both grew up looking up to! Two words Mitchell, Dean Smith!!!!!!!!!!!
My thoughts (uninformed and probably carolina blue tinted) i emailed this to a buddy
I look at it like this… We all know he is one and done. If he was so set on FSU because of parents, why not already commit to them being that he is not a huge fan of all the recrutitng hoopla. I don’t see him at Kentucky, i have read he is not a fan of the Harrison twins who are going to UK, plus they have a huge class of possible one and done guys coming in.. only one ball to share, everyone they bring in wants to be one and done. And Randle is leaning to them too. With Kansas I understand as they are a blue blood… But they lose their entire starting 5 (if ben mac goes pro like folks think)…. So does he want to go somewhere to rebuild and catch L’s (he could do that at his parents alma mater – FSU).. that brings us to UNC.. a blueblood, high profile as it gets (he saw first hand how the dook UNC game gets covered and can get that x 2). Jabari Parker vs Wiggins would only add to that… Possible line up of
PG – Paige
SG – Bullock
SF – Wiggins
PF – PJ
C – JMM
That is SICK = F4 contender..
with a bench of Lmac/Britt/Hicks/Tokoto/James/Meeks/Huburt
If ONE of JMM or Reggie leaves we still are strong… if both leave and add wiggins we have
with LMac/Britt/Tokoto/Hicks on Bench
still very strong, still would be looked at as contender
IF BOTH RB and JMM go
Not as strong, but still stronger than what FSU or Kansas will be IMO (if wiggins is as expected)
Plus what coach is more respected than Roy by former players? It is always said how well he takes care of his kids, cares for them, and how muck players are a part of the Family (see him visiting KM/ Barnes by surprise the night of their first NBA game only to fly right back to UNC) You don’t see Cal or K doing that. Also being a Heel would(you would think) give him a great shot of being signed by the Jordan brand, he could be the first big canadan player to wear that (I would think that is attractive to MJ himself)... It cant be bad that the main negative he hears about UNC (Roy cant develop players) has been handled by him talking to former players (Barnes included)
Just my thoughts..... BUT I CAN SEE IT
