Huntington, WV (Sports Network) - Top high school recruit Andrew Wiggins finally selected a school on Tuesday when he announced his intention to play for the Kansas Jayhawks next season.

Wiggins' announcement was held in the gym of Huntington Prep School with the only member of the press allowed in attendance Huntington Herald-Dispatch reporter Grant Traylor, who tweeted "Andrew Wiggins will be attending Kansas."

Originally from Toronto, Wiggins had narrowed his options to four schools before Tuesday, and selected the Jayhawks over Florida State, Kentucky and North Carolina.

The 6-foot-8 forward was the Naismith Prep Player of the year this past season and is the No. 1 ranked prospect in the class of 2013 according to Scout.com.

Wiggins, whose father Mitchell played in the NBA, will follow in the footsteps of Ben McLemore, who declared for the 2013 NBA Draft after a stellar freshman season with Kansas this past year. Last season, Kansas finished 31-6 overall and earned a No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.
