Fair point. Along with Jarod Wilson's suggestion as well.  How about the 


 # check for the first user and add it to user wheel and then to sudoers

 USER=$( grep 500 /etc/passwd | cut -d: -f1 )
 GROUPS=$( groups $USER )
 if ! groups $USER | grep -q wheel ; then
         usermod -a -G wheel $USER
         sed -i 's/# %wheel    ALL=(ALL)    ALL/ %wheel    ALL=(ALL)    ALL/' /etc/sudoers
