The top recruit in the country (sorry Julius Randle) too an official visit to Florida State last night. The university was excited to see Andrew Wiggins, maybe a little too excited (more on that in a bit).
The Seminoles welcomed the undefeated Florida Gators to Tallahassee as well as Wiggins. I bet they wish they had been playing someone else because FSU got completely destroyed by the Gators 72-47. How embarrassing. FSU students painted his name on their shirts and had cheerleaders hold up signs for him, but all of that couldn’t hide the fact that they got punked in their own home by a top rival. And looked completely outmatched while doing it.
But Wiggins may not have been interested in what was going on at the game. Yesterday an interesting tweet from an FSU co-ed made it’s rounds on twitter. The “lady” in question tweeted out that if the fun Wiggins had with her and her girls then there is no way to convince him to come to Florida State.
Even though the Seminoles lost, it seems like Wiggins had a great time on campus.
Archie Goodwin made CBS Sports’ “Freshman of the Year” watch. He came in at number three:
It wasn’t a great week for Goodwin or Kentucky; the Wildcats dropped back-to-back games. Goodwin averaged 10 points, 6.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists in the two games — but his shot was off in both games and he struggled to take care of the ball against Baylor. It remains to be seen if Ryan Harrow will move Goodwin off the ball, where he’s more comfortable.
Marcus Smart from Oklahoma State was #1 and some guy named Anthony Bennett from UNLV was #2.
