Everybody loves a good player comparison. Here, 247Sports national recruiting analyst Jerry Meyer gives player comparisons for six of the top 2013 prospects, including UK signees Aaron/Andrew Harrison as well as UK targets Andrew Wiggins and Julius Randle.
The nations top Class of 2013 hoops prospect, Andrew Wiggins, has amazing athleticism. So which established player does he compare best to?
Good read. Since its been James Young day on Catspause anyone have a comparison for him?
Xavier Henry and Morris Peterson are the closest I've seen IMO.
So if Kentucky gets Randle they will basically be starting
Center (TBD, depending who comes back and no comparison for Lee or Johnson right now)
In the words of Coach Cal, "I like my team."
Maybe WCS- Tyson Chandler.
Dakari Johnson- Kendrick Perkins?
those sound like good comparisons, and that makes next year's team even more scary.
I would compare Wiggins to Dominique Wilkins.
Wiggins reminds me of Pippen defensively. He will be able to guard four positions next year, and possibly the year after. Not many guys you can say that about.
Offensively he has more upside than Pippen as he is so explosive. Will be interesting to see how his offensive game develops. This will determine if he is an all-star or an all-timer.
I don't know if I agree with Meyer in that Wiggins doesn't have McGrady's scoring ability. Maybe I'm missing something but Wiggins is an elite scorer and will only get better. McGrady was a great player but he lacked leadership ability and toughness. That why he could never get the Rockets over the hump. I believe Wiggins has that slit your throat ability that McGrady didn't have.
I havn't seen Young play a full game but in the tap I have seen he reminds me of D. Anderson.
