HAMPTON, Va. – It’s three years until the class of 2014 takes center stage, but Andrew Wiggins has already made a name for himself on a national level.
In fact, Wiggins might be the top player in his class.
The 6-foot-7 Canada native is explosive athletically and can score at will against most defenders. He has great speed and can get to the rim in traffic. Wiggins shoots the ball well from the perimeter and also crashes the offensive glass for second-chance opportunities. He handles the ball effectively and finds teammates for open shots.
In terms of recruiting, Kentucky, North Carolina State, USC and a host of other schools are pursuing Wiggins, but one university is the heavy favorite.
“Florida State is standing out right now,” he said. “Both my parents went there.”
Leonard Hamilton and the Seminoles picked up a five-star prospect in every class from 2007 to 2010, and could be on the verge of landing another big fish in 2014.
