Andrew Wiggins, a 6-foot-8, 200-pound versatile forward from outside Toronto was the No. 1 prospect in the class of 2013 and is widely considered the likely No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA draft. The once-in-a generation talent has Kansas fans in a frenzy, but it’s not the first time a first-year Jayhawk has had that effect, writes Luke Winn in this week’s Sports Illustrated -- on newsstands now.

Winn compares Wiggins to former Jayhawk greats Wilt Chamberlain and Danny Manning. “The notion of what Andrew Wiggins could be, if he can cultivate a relentlessness to pair with his talent, is why he is being received differently -- even at a school that’s won nine straight regular-season Big 12 titles and has two other potential first-rounders in guard Wayne Selden and center Joel Embiid,” writes Winn. “Even in a college town that’s seen this already, twice.”

In fact, Kansas coach Bill Self told the freshman star when he arrived on campus in June that, “if you handle this right, you could potentially have everything you ever dreamed of and go down as one of the most loved athletes to ever come through this university.”

With just weeks until college basketball season begins, fans won't have to wait long to see if the highly-touted freshman lives up to expectations.
