Interview: The Top High School Basketball Players Talk Sneakers, Hoops, and MJ at the Jordan Brand Classic Photo by Bryan Horowitz

Andrew Wiggins

Arguably the top player in the country – depending on your opinion of Jabari Parker – the Canadian-born Wiggins is a lethal scorer who would probably be the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft this season if he could declare for the pros. Most likely, the Huntington Prep star will merely have to wait a year for that. A favorite of fellow Canadian Drake, Wiggins is undecided between Kentucky, Florida State and North Carolina.

Andrew, what did it mean for you going forward to have played in this game with Michael Jordan in attendance?

It’s an honor. I give cheers to the fact that all these celebrities came to watch us play. So I just appreciate that, and I’m blessed to be here, with the opportunity to play among the best players in the world.

Did Drake say anything to you?

No, he just shouted us out on stage, me and Tyler (Ennis) and Kasey (Hill.)

How’d the XX8’s feel?

(Smiles) They were good, pretty good.

Going to get a lot of shoes over the next couple of weeks at All-Star games and such, huh?

Maybe? I don’t know. (Laughs)
