Just in case you haven't heard, this Andrew Wiggins kid is pretty good.
The Kansas Jayhawks' star freshman made his official debut with the team during their annual "Late Night in the Phog" scrimmage at Allen Fieldhouse on Friday night, with fans and students getting very excited for the season to begin in November.
Wiggins made sure to give the fans a show. He showed up big in the scrimmage, and had the crowd on their feet with some exciting plays, including more than a few highlight dunks.
The consensus No. 1 recruit from last year's high school class has been hyped since before he landed in Lawrence, Kansas. He was regarded as the best player in the nation due to his freakish athleticism and physical dominance. He can make big plays on both sides of the ball, throwing down some monster slam dunks and rejecting opponents at the rim.
His legend has continued to grow before even stepping on the court for an actual college game. It was announced on Thursday that Wiggins was the first freshman ever selected to the Big 12 Preseason All-Conference team. Based on what we saw from him on Friday night, it's pretty easy to see why.
The Jayhawks are looking to maintain their reputation as one of the best college basketball programs in the country. They finished the 2012-2013 season with a 31-6 record, but fell to Michigan in the Sweet 16.
With Ben McLemore gone, the Jayhawks needed another superstar. It looks like they have one in Wiggins.
