Kansas' Wiggins declares for NBA draft

  Andrew Wiggins averaged 17.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game this season.

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins made official Monday what he's been telling folks all along: He's headed to the NBA after his only season with the Jayhawks.

A 6-foot-8 forward who was voted second-team All-America earlier in the day, Wiggins is expected to go in the top three picks in the June draft. Some believe he could go first overall.

Wiggins was the top-rated recruit when he arrived at Kansas, and his brief career was a bit of a roller coaster. He struggled early in the season, caught fire midway through, and then flamed out when it mattered most in an NCAA tournament loss to Stanford.

Wiggins only scored four points on 1-for-6 shooting in the third-round defeat. Afterward, he said that he let his team down with his poor performance.
