Andrew Wiggins recently made the decision to skip Canada’s U19 World Championship training camp, and I have to say it was the right one. Wiggins has been on the road basically all year and he finally got some time this summer to spend some time in Canada with his family.
Bummer. Andrew Wiggins pulls out of Canada’s U19 World Championship training camp. Wants to focus on Kansas: http://t.co/dgmpmMpwoU

He can now settle into his freshman season easily with plenty of time over the summer to get to know his teammates, coaching staff, and schemes. He will be there for the Canadian squad too when he tries out for the 2016 Olympic squad, which he will almost assuredly make.

Wiggins is up for Gatorade’s national high school athlete of the year and I’m pretty certain that I will have the opportunity to speak with him, so if you have any questions you’d like me to ask definitely let me know. Wiggins will probably go home with the hardware this year, but I will definitely have to check out the other nominees before I make a prediction.
