Top basketball prospect Andrew Wiggins is headed to Kansas.
Wiggins signed a letter-of-intent with the Jayhawks at a private ceremony Tuesday afternoon in Huntington. He previously narrowed his choices to Kentucky, North Carolina and Florida State.
The Canadian star averaged 23.4 points and 11.2 rebounds per game this season for West Virginia's Huntington Prep.
Initially rated as a 2014 prospect, Wiggins shot to the top of recruiting charts when he decided last October to reclassify into his original high school class of 2013. The four major recruiting services have rated Wiggins as the No. 1 overall prospect.
Although his parents both attended Florida State, the Toronto-born Wiggins had kept quiet about his intentions. He had until Wednesday to sign with a Division I school.
