After putting out the 2012 and 2013 rankings last week, it's time for the first release of our 2014 top 25. Leading the way is 6-foot-6 wing Andrew Wiggins.

Scout.com's 2014 Top 25

Over the spring and summer our recruiting team raided the country searching for and evaluating 2014 prospects.

Once the dust settled there was only one name – Andrew Wiggins -- strongly considered for the top spot.

Wiggins, who will transfer to Huntington (W.V.) Prep for his sophomore season, is a unique and special talent. An athletic wing, Wiggins is great in transition and does a terrific job of finding ways to score in the half court set.

Wiggins was especially effective in July playing for CIA Bounce. His jump shot is improving, he rebounds his position quite well and he has a chance to be a terrific defender.

Checking in just behind Wiggins is Chicago (Ill.) Whitney Young standout Jahlil Okafor. A wide bodied big man, Okafor carves out space in the paint, has a great set of hands and has already developed scoring moves on the block.

Another post prospect came in at No. 3. Dakari Johnson, who recently transferred to Montverde (Fla.) Academy, is a 6-foot-10 developing big man that maneuvers well inside and has an impressive scoring touch.

Theo Pinson came in at No. 4, while point guard Emmanuel Mudiay ranked No. 5 overall.

Pinson, an athletic wing, has great size and athleticism from the small forward position. Much like Wiggins, Pinson played up in the 17’s division in the EYBL and was effective playing against players two years older.

Mudiay, a 6-foot-3 lead guard, is a terrific passer, scorer and driver. He established himself during his freshman season at Arlington (Tex.) Grace Prep and built his resume on the summer circuit.

Noah Vonleh, Tyus Jones, Trey Lyles, Wayne Selden and Chris McCullough close out the top 10 in the 2014 class.

Lyles, an Indiana pledge, is the only committed prospect among the 2014 top 25.
