The most sought-after recruit in the country earned some hardware on Monday, as he was named the Naismith National High School Player of the Year.

Wiggins, who averaged 23.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 3.4 steals and 2.1 blocks per game for Huntington Prep in Huntington, WV, this season, won the award over Jabari Parker and Aaron Gordon.

The bigger question surrounding Wiggins is where he will spend his collegiate days. No one wants to bet against Kentucky, but over the past couple of months, the rumbling has been that Florida State is the favorite. Wiggins doesn’t like the spotlight. He doesn’t want the attention. And in Lexington, KY, it’s impossible for a basketball player to avoid the spotlight and shun the attention. They’re celebrities.

Quincy Lewis of Lone Peak High School in Highland, UT, was named National Coach of the Year.
