If we printed out all of the articles written about Andrew Wiggins since his commitment to Kansas and laid them end to end, the path of paper would likely stretch from Lawrence, Kansas to Jupiter (and not the one in Florida, either).
He'll be scrutinized all season long as he takes his required stopover in college before entering the NBA draft. While expectations vary wildly on how much he'll score as a Jayhawk, it's commonly accepted that he'll thrive in whatever role coach Bill Self asks him to play.
Wiggins is an odd fit at Kansas, since Self has had limited success with one-and-done prospects. Xavier Henry was a 13-PPG scorer. Josh Selby missed his first nine games and left after averaging seven points on 37 percent shooting. Ben McLemore played well in his one season, but that was after sitting out a season with transcript issues.
Self is a coach unlikely to build his entire system around one player, so Wiggins will be hard-pressed to reach gaudy scoring figures. If he wins national honors, it's more apt to be through a stellar all-around season.
He's a skilled and smart enough player to average six rebounds and six assists per game, numbers that can certainly draw All-American honors if he can add 16-18 points per game. Whether his stats are gaudy or shaky, though, Wiggins will never leave the national radar.
