  • College Predictions for Wiggins, Randle & Gordon

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    The Lexington Herald-Leader asked a few of us to make college predictions for Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle and Aaron Gordon.

    So below are mine with a link to the full article here.

    Wiggins (Florida State): “Although Kentucky will get serious consideration (and possibly North Carolina, too), look for Wiggins’ family and other connections to win out in the end. Both of his parents played there, and his close friend and teammate, Xavier Rathan-Mayes, will be a Seminole. Wherever Wiggins goes, it will only be a one-year pit stop before he’s taken No. 1 overall in the 2014 NBA Draft.”

    Randle (Kansas): “This seems to be coming down to Kansas, Kentucky and possibly N.C. State, but in the end I expect Kansas to win out. Multiple sources close to the recruitment believe Randle will land at Kansas, where he had a terrific official visit and could follow in the footsteps of Thomas Robinson and other great KU frontcourt players. Again, expect him to spend one year on campus before turning pro.”

    Gordon (Washington): “This should come down to Washington and Arizona, but Gordon’s father is an old childhood friend of Washington Coach Lorenzo Romar, who has worked long and hard recruiting the 6-8 Blake Griffin clone. Gordon does have ties to Arizona through his AAU program, the Oakland Soldiers, so it wouldn’t be a shock if he landed there, either.”
