ESPN No. 65 ranked high school junior and Maryland commit Aaron Wiggins was named Co-MVP at Stephen Curry’s SC30 Selected Showcase, which featured some of the nation’s top juniors and seniors.
The all-star game was part of the Warrior star’s SC30 Select Camp, a three-day training session which included some the country’s top HS ballers.
Wiggins poured in 20 points while sinking a whopping 6 threes on a red-hot 60 percent from behind the arc.
“Every time I see Aaron Wiggins play, you never see any wasted motion,” ESPN’s Paul Biancardi told InsideMDSports. “He knows where he wants to go and what he wants to do.”
The 6-6 small forward out of Wesleyan Christian Academy (High Point, NC) averaged 15.1 points on 46 percent shooting from three for Team Charlotte in the Under Armour Association circuit this season (through 10 games).
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.”
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.”
