Andrew Wiggins Contemplating Reclassifying To Class of 2013

According to his high school coach, highly touted 2014 recruit Andrew Wiggins may reclassify to graduate with the ‘13 class, making him eligible for the 2014 NBA Draft. ZagsBlog.com has the details: “Wiggins told CatsPause.com that he was ‘not going to do it,’ but left the door open that he could change his mind during the school year. In that regard, Wiggins would be similar to incoming Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel, who changed from 2013 to 2012, allowing him to go in the 2013 NBA Draft, where he is currently projected as the No. 1 overall pick by DraftExpress.com. ‘If we could get him to college early which would then get him to the NBA earlier, as a coach and a mentor to him, then we have to tell him, ‘Hey, this is probably the direction for your development that you will probably want to go,’’ Fulford said. ‘But also if he’s not ready we’re not going to push him because he’s still young. He wants to experience high school. It’s not like coming back here for a year is not going to help him. He’s gotten bigger, stronger. He’s gotta develop.’ Fulford said Wiggins, 17, would need to do some additional coursework at Huntington Prep in order to reclassify to 2013.”

    Kid is going to go 1st overall whether in the 2014 or 2015 draft…

    He may end up being as great a Canadian player as Nash. For their shambled basketball program’s sake, I certainly hope so.

    Where is the petition to demand that this young man be called “Ender” by everyone?

    Allen, i’m calling him Ender (which Ender’s Game is the best book ever written, every man should be forced to read that book in their lifetime, i don’t care if someone/anyone disagrees) when he finally makes the league. I’ve been planning this since i heard his name lol

    nbadraf.net is already assuming that he will reclassify and has him as the 1st pick in 2014; he has to reclassify he’s too dominant not to, oh and sports illustrated got it so wrong Parker is not Wiggins,just wait a year from now sports illustrated is going to put Andrew Wiggins on a cover page and name it: “the new king” to try to make up for there mistake.

    Shambled basketball program? Enlighten me, Conor

    I think he is talking about our shambled National Men’s Team. The development programs, in terms of kids, are actually pretty good.


    When I coached Andrew at 14 he could have started for the Raptors and easily averaged
    18 points and 5 rebounds. People doubted me then when I said this is the next Mike or Lebron. So believe me when I say you have not seen anything yet. I’m sure this kid has only showcased 70% of what he has. That means there is another 30% we have not seen.
    When he gets to the league its go to be a nightly show.
