Mega-recruit Andrew Wiggins, arguably the best prep prospect since LeBron James, announced on Tuesday that he will be attending Kansas. Wiggins, the final player in ESPNU's top-100 rankings to select a school, chose the Jayhawks over Kentucky, North Carolina and his parents' alma mater, Florida State.

Wiggins' decision immediately elevates the Jayhawks to serious Final Four contender status, despite losing every starter from last season's team. Wiggins slots in perfectly at the small forward spot and should be the team's lead option from the get-go, despite having other talented returnees around him and some really good other freshmen coming in, as well.

Wiggins' announcement process has been as unique as well, waiting well into the spring signing period to decide and then not making a giant spectacle of the decision, electing to announce it at his prep school in front of family, friends and classmates, with only local media member Grant Traylor invited to observe.
