Months of speculation and rumors over whether Andrew Wiggins, arguably the top high school basketball player in the country, would reclassify to the 2013 class can now come to rest. The highly-touted recruit’s father told USA Today that his son is ready and looking forward to playing in college next fall. With Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, and the Harrison-twins also leading the pack for the 2013 group, this has to be one of the greatest classes of all-time. From USA Today: “Mitchell Wiggins said Thursday that he expects his son, Andrew Wiggins, to play college basketball next season. Andrew Wiggins is a 6-foot-8 small forward at Huntington (W.Va.) Prep who is considered the best high school player regardless of class in the United States. “It’s time,” Mitchell Wiggins told USA TODAY Sports. “It’s time for him (to show) that he is the best in college right now. I think he is ready for the next step. Academically-wise he is doing great. Maturity-wise he is doing great. He has a lot of talent. He is ready for the next step, and everybody knows it is time. It is Andrew’s time. Next year is coming soon and he is ready.” Mitchell Wiggins said his son will publicly announce his decision to reclassify and attend college next season when he is comfortable. Kentucky and Florida State are among the schools in the hunt. “
