Andrew Wiggins has been called the Canadian LeBron James; I personally think the comparison is a bit off, but I see why people have said it. One thing is for sure; James has noticed Wiggins’ game and is impressed. Wiggins actually played in front of the entire U.S. Olympic team last summer at James’ skills camp.
“He plays with a maturity about him at a level that’s above a lot of high school kids,” James said. “If he continues on the path he’s on, he can be really good.”
Wiggins still has not decided where he will attend school, but everyone has their best guess. My readers know what my guess is.
“Certainly Andrew Wiggins would be the best prospect FSU has gotten,” said ESPN senior recruiting analyst Dave Telep. “It would cast a huge spotlight on FSU and give them a lot of street cred. If they get him, they have to have a big year in order to fully capitalize on it. Expectations will be wildly out of control.”
When this news came out it really caught my ear. Telep did the courtside interviews at the National High School Invitational in Bethesda, Maryland; I was highly impressed by his work and tend to listen when he has a prediction or theory.
It will be fascinating to watch Wiggins’ game develop and the only question that remains is where he will spend his lone year in college.
