Andrew Wiggins Will Announce College Decision on May 14

Tim KeeneyContributor IMay 12, 2013

The end of the speculation surrounding Andrew Wiggins' college decision is officially visible on the horizon. 

For months (and years, for some), college basketball fans have wondered where the nation's best high school basketball player would play his collegiate ball, and that question will finally be answered on Tuesday. 

The news comes from Rob Fulford, Wiggins' head coach at Huntington Prep in West Virginia:

Wiggins' appeal is obvious at first glance. He already has an NBA body at 6'7", 190 pounds, and his versatile offensive game and absolutely unparalleled athletic ability are drool-worthy.

As a clear one-and-done prospect (he's projected by most to be the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA draft), Wiggins has the tools to produce on the collegiate scene like few other true freshmen we've ever seen.

The two assumed front-runners for his services are Florida State and Kentucky, two schools coming off disappointing NIT appearances. 

Florida State usually isn't in contention for elite recruits of this nature, but Wiggins' mother and father were both Seminoles, and Xavier Rathan-Mayes, his teammate at Huntington Prep, has already committed to Leonard Hamilton's Tallahassee squad.

Then you have Kentucky. 

John Calipari, who is notorious for preparing one-and-done talents like Wiggins for the NBA, is already bringing in quite possibly one of the best recruiting classes of all time. Julius Randle, Andrew and Aaron Harrison, Dakari Johnson, James Young and Marcus Lee are all McDonald's All-Americans and future Wildcats. 

The long shots are Kansas and North Carolina, but it would be foolish to completely count either out. Both schools boast a rich basketball tradition, diehard fanbase and elite head coach.

Wiggins' recruitment has been slightly drawn out, but come November, he'll likely prove to us all that he's the type of player who deserves such otherworldly hype.

On Tuesday, we'll know what lucky school he'll be doing it for.
