I am surprised that KU outbid Kentucky, for sure.

Best coach, best team, best school, best community, why would anyone want to go anywhere else?

I'm also sad that Andrew will be taking away playing time from Tyler Self.

Yes but:

I remember former K=State coach, Jack Hartman, explaining why he didn't like to recruit Juco players: "If you recruit kids that are willing to work hard and earn their playing time and then a juco kid comes in and steals that playing time, it makes your program a harder sell in the long term thus undermining the consistency of your program.

This still holds true but is made much worse for these players with the one and dones. Ben Mclemore was an exception because he was such a good kid and a tremendous talent that he was able to fit in. It sounds like Wiggins could be that type of player as well. If we have the type of year we all hope we do, we could have three one and dones. Lets hope we don't see to many of those committed players heading out the back door. We may need them after next year.
