The top basketball player in the 2014 class shooting guard Andrew Wiggins, listed the North Carolina Tar Heels along with Duke, Syracuse, Florida State and Kentucky as his top five. The 6’7”, 205 lbs swingman out of Canada can do it all on the court. Capable of playing the two, three or four spots at a high level.
Very talented and athletic some call him the best high school basketball talent in North America (wouldn’t that mean the world? just saying). Wiggins is a physical freak who runs the floor like a point guard, can lead the break with very good ball handling skills, is great in isolation and can create for himself and teammates in the half court. He possesses skills that rival and in some scouts minds trumps that of Jabari Parker.
His coach has his list even shorter here:
“I know he likes Florida State, I know he likes Kentucky and I know he likes North Carolina, but I don’t know anything outside of that,” his AAU coach, Mike George of CIA Bounce, told SNY.tv.
If you listen to his coach here, Carolina seems to have the edge over Duke
“I hear from both of them, Carolina probably a little more at this point but not to say that Duke doesn’t call,” Fulford said Sunday. “[Carolina] Coach [Roy] Williams came and watched him play when we were in D.C. this year.”
Wiggins’ parent both went to Florida State and the Seminoles look like they will be in the race to the end. Rumors have went back and forth about whether or not Wiggins will reclassify to the 2013 class or stay put with his current 2014 class.
