Link?

And my info is from UNC message boards, as recent as tonight when some posters have admitted to being behind, but still in it.

ESPN Insider/Recruiting Nation...all 7 experts asked including guys like Telep picked either FSU or UK.

As I said earlier, link to this quote? Seems like Tar Heel fans would be a little more excited about "leading" for Andrew Wiggins, on both premium and free message boards.

It's on IC. There is a guy in the area that Wiggins plays that is a high school coach and asked Wiggins coach who was the leader right now (the guys info was verified).

Lulz. The guy was verified by who? People in the thread are questioning him. People have said similar stuff for years on all message boards. A lot of it during the Barnes recruitment for example on Duke boards, etc. Hell, even now with Jabari and people at his church telling people he's going to Duke. Message boards in general, are full of absolute idiots with a few smart guys. Random dude with 500 or so posts, basketball coach or not, who may be connected to Wiggins (if he even is), probably not a good source when compared to guys like Dave Telep, etc.

Wiggins may very well end up at UNC, and it would be the smartest play for him potentially...but please. Linking IC as evidence and calling someone out on their information while yours is only a free message board rumor? Just, lulz. Right now, I'll trust my premium information from recruiting analysts like Telep and Co.

By the way both Paul Biancardi (the ESPN director of basketball recruiting) and Mike LaPlante said UNC is the favorite for Wiggins right now.

That was my fault, LaPlante said it would come down to UNC or FSU that's right.

So we got Telep, LaPlante, and Biancardi all disagreeing lol.
