Andrew Wiggins is a big deal on Florida State's campus and he is still in high school. 

The 6'7" high-school star is in the midst of choosing which school he will attend for his freshman season. The No. 1 prospect, according to Rivals, draws comparison to LeBron James and has programs across the nation salivating at the prospect of attaining his services. 

If that sounds like hyperbole, consider the welcome wagon he received in the form of beautiful coeds proclaiming their affection for all things Andrew Wiggins. 

Barstool Sports gives us just a sample of what it's like to be the most coveted prep basketball player in the nation. 

Hint: Things are good. 

Bob Ferrante of FOX Sports reported on Wiggins' first campus visit. With schools like Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Ohio State on his radar, something tells me there will be similar sights from students and spirit squads from each program. 

Perhaps the students thought they should get to work because their basketball squad certainly wasn't selling the program. 

During his visit, the Seminoles were destroyed by the No. 6 Florida Gators, 72-47. Still, things got fairly interesting, at least off the court. Per Ferrante: 

On Tuesday, Wiggins was shown around Tallahassee by a few Florida State co-eds. One of them, @NosillaDraw, tweeted on Wednesday afternoon a photo of Wiggins with three girls and said, "If my girls and I didn’t convince you to come to FSU last night I don’t know what would!" The tweet caused a stir in Tallahassee and Lexington, and on Thursday she tweeted, "Oh what a tangled web we weave. Just showed him around Tally for an hour. Then I made a notorious tweet about it. #Wiggins2FSU"

Yes, the Wiggins love-fest has broken out into near hysteria. 

The report also makes sure to note both of his parents are Florida State alums, making his stay in Tallahassee a perfectly reasonable expectation. 

That is, if the coeds don't scare off his parents first.
