Top recruit Wiggins to play for Jayhawks

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Top prep basketball prospect Andrew Wiggins told a small gathering of family and friends at his high school gym that he will play at Kansas.

Then the Huntington Prep star signed his letter-of-intent and officially became a Jayhawk. No big speech. No bands, live TV coverage or props. Just the way Wiggins wanted it. And just like that, Lawrence, Kan., became more of a focal point for the upcoming college basketball season.

The 6-foot-8 Toronto native chose Kansas over Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida State. Wiggins said there wasn’t one particular selling point, taking into account each school’s coaching staff, players and program.
