Wiggins Named to Preseason Blue Ribbon All-America Team

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas freshman guard Andrew Wiggins has earned his first preseason accolade by donning the cover of the 2013-14 Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook.

Being on the cover, Wiggins is a preseason All-America by Blue Ribbon. He is joined on the Blue Ribbon cover by Oklahoma State sophomore Marcus Smart, Creighton senior Doug McDermott, Louisville senior Russ Smith and Michigan State junior Adreian Payne.

Ranked the No. 1 recruit in the class of 2013 by every recruiting service, Wiggins, a 6-8 forward from Thornhill, Ontario, Canada, averaged 23.4 points, 11.2 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 2.5 assists last season for Huntington (W. Va.) Prep leading his team to a 30-3 record and a No. 7 finish in the USA Today Super 25 national rankings.

Wiggins was named the 2013 Gatorade Male Athlete of the Year in July after earning numerous national basketball high school All-American and player of the year accolades along the way.

“This is a great honor but really means nothing since I have yet to play a game in college,” Wiggins said. “We’re working hard every day to get better as a team and get ready for the season.”
