Maryland Gets No. 30 Jr SF Aaron Wiggins

ESPN No. 30 ranked high school junior small forward Aaron Wiggins has committed to Maryland.

 

The 6-6 wing out of Wesleyan Christian Academy (High Point, NC) is averaging 15.1 points on 46 percent shooting from three for Team Charlotte in the Under Armour Association circuit this season (through 10 games).

 

“The atmosphere, the students and the coaches have built really strong relationships with my family,” Wiggins told Scout on choosing the Terps. “They made me a priority.”

 

“I feel like this is where I fit best,” added Wiggins. “I want to major in kinesiology and they have kinesiology program. They have everything that I was looking for in a school.”

 

His Wesleyan high school head coach Keith Gatlin, who is a former Maryland point guard, said the Terps are getting a special person in Wiggins

 

“He’s a great kid. He’s a great basketball player, but he’s a better person,” Gatlin told the Baltimore Sun. “Great family, great student. Maryland is getting a gem all the way around.”

 

According to Overtime’s Shanita Ward, Wiggins is an explosive scorer.

 

“Aaron Wiggins is one of the best shot creators from the class of 2018,” Ward wrote. “[He] can shoot from seemingly anywhere on the court and his range and release are reminiscent of Golden State’s Klay Thompson.”

 

The Terps beat out the likes of Arizona, Florida, Cal, Virginia, Wake Forest, and Florida State to land Wiggins.

 

He is Maryland’s first recruit in the 2018 class.
