Wiggins signs with Kansas

Wiggins signed with Kansas Tuesday, choosing the Jayhawks over Kentucky, Florida State and North Carolina.

Kentucky already had the top-ranked recruiting class coming into Tuesday but John Calipari and the Wildcats missed out on the crown jewel.

Rated as the consensus No. 1 overall prospect in the 2014 class by the 247Composite, Huntington (W.V.) Prep's Andrew Wiggins signed with Kansas Tuesday, choosing the Jayhawks over Kentucky, Florida State and North Carolina.

In a quiet event fitting of his shy personality, Wiggins quietly signed his national letter-of-intent in front of his friends, family and coaches.

The ultra-athletic 6-foot-8, 195-pound forward is the fourth 5-star recruit in the 2014 class to ink with Kansas--joining Wayne Selden, Joel Embiid and Brannen Greene--and bumps the Jayhawks' class up to No. 2 in the 247Composite Team Rankings.

With six 5-stars of its own, Kentucky retains top billing and along with Michigan State, Louisville and potentially Kansas, goes into next season as one of the prohibitive favorites to win the national championship.

Kansas made a late move with Wiggins to overtake UK and Florida State, who had long-been considered the two front-runners. Wiggins' brother, Nick, will be a senior at nearby Wichita State next season.
