Andrew Wiggins is entering his 2012-13 school year at Huntington Prep as a junior, but he’s taking the necessary coursework to reclassify, if that’s the route he chooses to take. According to his AAU coach, Wiggins is putting himself in a position to graduate next spring if he needs to.
“As of right now, he’s 2014, and if he decides to change it, he’s put himself in position if he wants to change it,” Mike George said in a phone interview with Steve Jones, now of the Courier-Journal. “He is going to take the courses regardless. … That leaves him with the option if he decides to do it, even if he doesn’t.”
George said it’s a difficult load but he expects Wiggins to handle it. He also said Wiggins will take college entrance exams soon, although he doesn’t see any urgency from the young star to enroll in college early.
“He’s a kid, man. He’s a kid at heart. He enjoys high school. He’s just having fun. … He enjoys being a kid. The other stuff that comes with college and the NBA life, I don’t think he’s really in a big hurry to rush into that.”
