Top Basketball Prospect Andrew Wiggins Selects Kansas 

Mitchell Layton/Getty Images (NEW YORK) --  Andrew Wiggins is a Kansas Jayhawk

The top basketball prospect in the nation signed a national letter of intent with Kansas Tuesday afternoon in Huntington, West Virginia.

"I'm looking forward to getting there and just doing my thing," Wiggins said.

The 6-foot-7 small forward was also considering Florida State, Kentucky, and North Carolina.

Wiggins averaged 23.6 points, 11.7 rebounds and 4.3 assists for Huntingon Prep last season after growing up in Toronto.  He was named the Naismith High School player of the year.

Kansas head basketball coach Bill Self is thrilled to have Wiggins on board.

"Andrew did this the exact way he said he was going to," Self said in a news release. "He played his cards very close to his vest as did his mother and father. I knew we were one of four. The competition was very stiff and we were fortunate that we were able to ink him today. He's a tremendous talent and a terrific kid."
