Former Huntington Prep High school basketball teenage prodigy, Andrew Wiggins, 18, who has the nation buzzing with his court exploits, is currently projected to be the overall number one selection in the NBA Draft 2014; notwithstanding the fact that the prodigiously talented Ontarian athlete has only until recently decided on which NCAA collegiate basketball program will utilize highly sought services in the next college hoops campaign; which has been revealed in Wiggins taking his talents to play for Kansas Jayhawks in the NCAA 2013-14 season.

 

‘It was kind of a surreal feeling. I was so happy, but at the same time, it was almost a humble happiness, and so proud we were able to land Andrew to go with what’s already a terrific recruiting class’ said Kansas Jayhawks Head Coach, Bill Self.

 

Florida State University were intensely rumored suitor for Andrew Wiggins, primarily due to strong ties with the respected institution. Former Philadelphia Sixers NBA player, Mitchell Wiggins, and Los Angeles Olympics 1984 400m athlete Marita Payne-Wiggins are both products of Florida State – ironically, both of whom are the Canadian McDonald’s All-American standouts parents.

 

NBA scouts – and experts alike – claim that Andrew Wiggins has unlimited maximum potential to reach superstar status in the biggest basketball league in the world – NBA; often comparing Wiggins to NBA Hall of Famer, Scottie Pippen. The Naismith Prep Player of the Year 2013 recipient has lead Canada to a bronze medal finish at the FIBA Americas Under 18 Championship last year…yet a gold standard talent awaits to be unleashed next summer when the franchise altering NBA draft lottery arrives.
