Huntington, WV---The Florida State basketball program and those who root for it are feeling a bit of a kick to the midsection Tuesday, at least metaphorically speaking.

Andrew Wiggins, considered by many, the best high school hoops prospect since Lebron James, has spurned FSU and signed with Kansas!

Wiggins a 6-7 post player, who handles the ball like a point guard, was born in Toronto but played high school ball for a prep school in Huntington West Virginia.

Both his parents are Florida State alums, his father played basketball there before going to the NBA, his mother a track star at FSU. So that certainly fueling much of the interest between Wiggins and Florida State.

He had narrowed his choices down to FSU, Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas.

Wiggins waited until Tuesday to sign basically because he could, he took his time, mulling things over for a few extra months.

Wiggins signing with only family and classmates on hand, and just one local reporter in Huntington.

It's believed he's the kind of talent that can turn any program into a serious national championship contender, though it's expected he'll be a one and done kind of talent.
