Blast From The Past: KSR’s first mention of Andrew Wiggins

August 13, 2011

Andrew Wiggins #1 in 2014
By: Matthew Hays

 

He's from Canada

I think now is a pretty good idea to start talking about recruiting the class of 2014. ESPNU has released their Terrific 25 fro 2014 and sitting atop the list is Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins is a 6’7 small forward from Toronto and he is high on John Calipari’s wish list. This is what ESPNU has to say about their new #1:

Strengths:
Andrew is very skilled and very athletic young wing. He’s a long, skilled perimeter player who can play the 2, 3 or 4. It’s his physical talent that makes him stand out right now. He has range to 22 feet, can score off the dribble or slash to the hoop. He has all the tools to be special.

Weaknesses:
Unfortunately, he does not play hard all the time and he lacks toughness. He does compete when he’s challenged but he doesn’t walk on the floor and expect to dominate yet.

Bottom Line:
Andrew could easily be the top player in the 2014 class whether he’s in Canada or the U.S. All the tools are there to be great because he is so physically imposing at such a young age. His father played in the NBA.

Sounds like a Canadian who would look good in blue and white.

    #1, according to Wikipedia: On March 30, 2013, Lucas was acquired by the “Canton Charge”. I wonder if we could still get him to consider Kentucky……or not.

    With Mrs.Wiggins in town, it’s time to salute the original, Carol Burnett.

    The fact that they are keeping this as private as possible made me nervous at first becuase it appears as though they are wanting to keep BigBlue Nation out. But, think about this. They turned down an offer to announce at the McDonald’s and Jordan Brand. I know there was a BBN presence at both events, but not an overwhelming presence. This has nothing to do with keeping BBN out. They really do want to keep this as simple as possible.
