Now for McAdoo.
I saw Roy Williams is going to meet with Wiggins on Monday.
Saw where Evan Daniels just tweeted that it's probably not even a factor with Wiggins. Wonder what that means?

Doubt its even a factor... RT @bdheelfan: If Bullock goes pro does UNC become the leader for AW?
To me it means Evan Daniels is pulling whatever it is out of his ass. His "expertise" means little to me.
Probably means the same thing we've said here about the decisions of other players in regard to whether it has any bearing on Wiggins to Kentucky. I think we've reached the point where everyone is reading way too much into any and everything that is said regarding Wiggins. Evan knows his stuff. He's as connected in the industry as anyone. But I also don't think he was saying anything other than Reggie Bullock's decision has no bearing on Andrew Wiggins' choice.
Looks like Self and Williams meeting with Wiggins one more time. Will Cal?
These programs are losing their players left and right. Their teams are going to be awful. They will meet with every top uncommitted prospect in the country. Wiggins wants to play for a National title not an NIT title.
I wouldn't worry about it too much. Based on AW own comments and his brother's I would be extremely surprised if it isn't UK or FSU. I just don't see him picking the Seminoles unless his parents really pressure him or they make the decision for him.
Exactly. It should be noted neither has done much without the majority of seasoned vets on their team.
I think, it can potentially be a big deal. If UNC is going to stink next year, UNC has 0 merit. Tradition is nice, and marketing is nice, but that's only true if it's a Final Four contender.
Why would Wiggins pick UNC over FSU if UNC is going to be just as bad as FSU, and possibly worse with JMM leaving.
Wiggins wants to win. Period.
Preseason rankings are bologna as far as I am concerned.....but.....who is gonna be ranked preseason #1?
Who has been playing with the UK recruits the past few weeks? How important is chemistry to a team?
At this moment in time, what college team has the best "branding" in basketball?
What former high school players and what play made sportscenter this past weekend?
How and what can playing for UK do for Wiggins that no other school can offer?
If you are Wiggins, when you are 45 years old, how will you look back at the one year that you spent in college before you turn pro?
I am certainly not the "sharpest tool in the shed", but these are some of the questions that come to my mind when I think about Andrew Wiggins decision on where he plays his college ball. There are many factors that he will have to take into consideration.
Bottom line is that I hope that he makes the decision that is best for him and wish him all the best wherever he decides to go. With talent like he has, he really can't go wrong.
And as far as the "create his own legacy" argument, come on, he will only be there one year. You talk about branding, UK was in the NIT, the NIT, and the ratings for the game were better than the NCAA tourney games. Granted, it was the play-in games but if another team besides UK was playing, how many viewers would have watched? He can win it all at UK. Not going to happen at FSU and most likely will not happen at KU and UNC. Albeit, I will say I am biased.
UNC will be very good next year if they add Wiggins. I've yet to see anything saying McAdoo is gone. If he stays and Wiggins comes they will be formidable.
