I got to thinking about Wagner’s potential return yesterday. I’m pretty 50/50 on what he will do and I think there’s a fair argument either way. I don’t think he will ever become a lottery pick, at least not with the talent on the roster next year so maybe it does make sense to leave now.
But if he were to return…I think he would have a fair shot at leaving a legacy of a top 5 player in program history. He might be the favorite for Big Ten Player of the year next year. Presuming a decent run to the Sweet 16 or better this year plus the potential of being a top 5 team nationally next year…Moe could go down as the best player and the face of one of the best 3-year stretches in school history.
Not that any player should have to feel compelled to “leave a legacy” over getting himself paid…but Moe does seem to be one to care about that kind of thing. I’ll be really interested to see what happens.
