Wiggins in a class by himself in 2014 

August, 8, 2012

Canada has been good to the United States in the past decade when it comes to college basketball talent -- from Avery Bradley to Tristan Thompson and Myck Kabongo -- but the best is yet to reach the college level. Andrew Wiggins (Toronto, Ontario/Huntington Prep) is not only the best performer in the Class of 2014; he is the top overall prospect in high school basketball.

His ascension to the top spot in his class occurred last summer. Wiggins' coronation as the top overall prospect came this summer. He is an athletic mixture of size, scoring and physical abilities that are uncommon in most 6-foot-7 wings. The son of a sprinter and former player at Florida State, Wiggins' genetics help him leap opponents, hunt dunks and take over a game as needed. Through the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League and into the final month of summer, Wiggins consistently delivered command performances, culminating in a runner-up spot at the Peach Jam and thrilling head-to-head encounter with senior Julius Randle (Dallas/Prestonwood).
