Incoming Canadian freshman Andrew Wiggins put on one hell of a show in his first official practice as a Kansas Jayhawk, according to Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com. "Like watching a video game," a source told Parrish. "He’d be the No. 1 pick this year." While the "video game" comment may be a bit hyperbolic, the idea that Wiggins would be the first overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft is spot on as he’s projected to be selected first in 2014, a draft class that scouts say is much stronger than this year’s. Wiggins is a 6-foot-8 forward from Vaughan, Ont. He was one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the United States as he’s been compared to NBA stars such as Scottie Pippen and LeBron James. He recently concluded his high school career at Huntington Prep School where he averaged 23.4 points and 11.1 rebounds per game in his final year.
