Andrew Wiggins, a 6-7 SG/SF from Toronto, is seen as one of the best recruits since LeBron James.Wiggins attended Huntington Prep in West Virginia. He was supposed to be a part of the 2014 class, but he was eligible to change classes. According to ESPN, Wiggins would be the no. 1 recruit in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 classes. On his short list of dream schools were Kentucky, Kansas, Florida State, and North Carolina. Many expected Wiggins to choose Kentucky because of their recent success in recruiting. Others thought that he would choose Florida State because his parents went there. He chose Kansas.
He will join an excellent college basketball program in Kansas. Coached by Bill Self, he will try to rewrite the championship legacy of his predecessors. Kansas will bring in a great recruiting class including Wiggins, Joel Embiid, and Wayne Selden. The addition of Wiggins will thrust them into the elite class of college basketball teams.
Wiggins is an good three point shooter that can get out in transition with his freak athletic ability. Defensively, he has all the tools to become a premier defender at every position. He has long arms, excellent size and terrific athleticism. He has immense talent, which will help him in college and beyond that. He is a good rebounder and he blocks a lot of shots.
Wiggins is currently the favorite to be the first overall pick in the 2014 NBA DRAFT. He already has all of the talent to become a franchise changing NBA player. It seems that he will be the next true superstar. There is a lot of buzz around Wiggins and it is reasonably so.
Here is a video of Wiggins’ first dunk at a Kansas scrimmage.
