Andrew Wiggins is the top overall prospect in the 2014 class.
His ranking shouldn’t be a surprise. In fact, Wiggins, a 6-foot-8 wing out of Canada, has proven himself as the nations top overall player and prospect, regardless of class.
Wiggins is one of the best prospects in recent memory because of his size, length, rare athleticism, skill set, defense and shot making ability from the wing position.
In the prestigious Nike Peach Jam, Wiggins scored 21.9 points and grabbed 8.9 rebounds per game, while shooting 47.8-percent from the field and leading CIA Bounce to the title game.
Jumping up to No. 2 in the updated 2014 rankings is Apple Valley (Minn.) High standout Tyus Jones.
Jones, who Scout analyst Brian Snow thinks could become a Chris Paul type player, put up 25.8 points and tossed out 6.5 assists a game, while leading Howard Pulley into the playoffs at the Peach Jam.
Jones has it all from the point guard position. He’s wise beyond his years and has a poise is unmatched at the high school level. His decision-making is tremendous, he has very good speed and he’s a threat from long distance.
Just after Jones in the ranking is Arlington (Tex.) Grace Prep guard Emmanuel Mudiay.
Suiting up with Texas Select this summer, Mudiay was tremendous every stop. In Milwaukee he strung together a game where he tossed out double-digit assists and he followed it up with impressive outings in Las Vegas.
At 6-foot-3, Mudiay has tremendous physical features. He has very good speed, is a dynamic athlete and is becoming more confident in his shooting ability from mid-range out to the three-point stripe.
The top post scorer in the 2014 class – Jahlil Okafor – checks in at No. 4 overall in the class.
Okafor, a 6-foot-9, 260-pound center, helped lead the USA Basketblal U17 team to a World Championship. He averaged 13.6 points and 8.3 rebounds a game, while shooting near 60-percent from the field.
Noah Vonleh, a combo forward from New Hampton (N.H.) Prep, is the No. 5 prospect in the 2014 class.
At 6-foot-8, Vonleh is a versatile forward that is at his best starting inside and working his way out. He’s a very good rebounder and athlete, but also someone that has developed a consistent shot to 22-feet.
Cliff Alexander, Dakari Johnson, Trey Lyles, Kevon Looney and Justise Winslow close out the top 10 in the 2014 class.
The updated 2014 list consists of just four committed prospects. Louisville commit Quentin Snider is rated the highest of the committed prospects at No. 26 overall. BYU, Missouri and Virginia also have committed players in the top 75.
