Wiggins to Kansas = good news for MSU

News has broken that likely one-and-done Andrew Wiggins has chosen Kansas over Kentucky, North Carolina, and Florida State. Setting aside FSU (his parents' alma mater), I see this as a positive development for MSU in a few ways:

1. Of Kansas, Kentucky, and North Carolina, Kansas was thought to have the lowest chance of competing for a national title in 2013-2014. They will certainly be a good team, especially with this addition, but Wiggins to either Kentucky or North Carolina might have created a more formidable NCAA tournament opponent.

2. Kentucky and North Carolina are on MSU's schedule, whereas I don't know of a potential MSU-Kansas showdown happening before late March. Sure, it might have been fun to watch MSU play against, and potentially beat, Wiggins' team, but these early-season contests tend to be rough enough on the Spartans regardless.

3. For whatever reason, MSU seems to compete for recruits with Kansas a bit less frequently than with Kentucky or UNC. I don't mind the latter two being denied some recruiting momentum going into 2014. Small stuff, maybe, but it can pass for good recruiting news until the 2014 dominoes start to fall.
