SLAM Magazine tells the story of Andrew Wiggins

He's the best high school player in the country and arguably the best since LeBron James. He's considering reclassifying to the class of 2013 so he can start his college career early, likely at either Kentucky or Florida State. He's Andrew Wiggins from Huntington Prep, and he's the subject of SLAM Magazine's latest piece, simply titled, "Let's Go." Have an excerpt:
Some speculate that he may go to Kentucky and play for John Calipari, who has coached three of the last five first overall NBA Draft picks. Others say that he might choose Florida State, his father’s alma mater. Those close to Wiggins say that where he goes to school isn’t important. “It doesn’t really matter where he goes, to be honest with you,” says Mike George, an assistant coach with Canada’s Global Challenge team and co-director of CIA Bounce, a Canadian AAU outfit. “He’s at a level where he can play whether you push the ball or play more in the half court. His athletic ability helps him create for his teammates; it’s a characteristic like LeBron has.” One thing that makes Wiggins’ situation dissimilar to LeBron’s is that Wiggins has to go to college, while LBJ had the luxury of being able to skip school. He’s already Canada’s most celebrated schoolboy baller ever and doesn’t even go to school there anymore. He ranked at the top of most major rankings for the Class of 2014, and many goes as far as to call him the best player in high school, period.
