Honestly, after hearing that Willie Cauley-Stein and Alex Poythress are coming back to UK and looking at their incoming class (with the addition of Wiggins likely) I don't see how all of those recruits suit up for UK next year.
Word is that despite recent rumblings KU is still strongly in the running for Wiggins. But I doubt he'll come to KU.
I was watching this recruiting show on ESPNU yesterday and as far as UK goes they brought up the same point: Most kids want to play (that's why Rio is leaving) and a lot of talented players won't get a lot of minutes at UK that they would have at another school. No kid wants to "be apart of the best recruiting class in history" like what Cal is allegedly feeding this kids and the public, they mostly care about playing and getting to the NBA. As the guy on the show stated, you can't get showcased properly by playing limited minutes or in a backup role. He then gave the other guy a look and waved his hand in front of his face alluding something fishy is going on then they started talking football recruiting.
It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when Cal is going down.
