It’s no surprise that Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins will be bolting for the NBA after his freshman season in Lawrence. And after only one year in college it’s also no surprise that when asked to describe his experience his first response was that it went by too quickly.
“It went too quick. I wish I had more time to stay here and do my thing, just be here with the team and the coaches and all these wonderful fans,” Wiggins said, thoughtfully. “That’s one of the reasons I committed here. I came here on senior night and the fans were so loyal.”
“I don’t think it’s hit me yet. That’s how quick everything went by,” Wiggins said. “It feels like just yesterday we had our late night, so I don’t think it’s hit me yet.”
Wiggins was acknowledged with a huge round of applause by the Jayhawk faithful when coach Self asked him and other freshman, Joel Embiid and Wayne Seldon to stand at the end of senior night.
Although with all the hype surrounding him coming in, his sporadic play sometimes times left a lot to be desired, there’s no doubt Wiggins has the talent to be successful on the next level. It will be interesting to watch his transition.
