Andrew Wiggins #1 in 2014
By: Matthew Hays
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:
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.
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.
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.
