Andrew Wiggins goes No. 1 to the Cleveland Cavaliers (Krista Pirtle's Blog)

The Cleveland Cavaliers selected Andrew Wiggins with their No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

Wiggins joins Anthony Davis as the only No. 1-ranked high school recruits to go first in the draft since 2007.

Last season at Kansas, Wiggins led the team in scoring with 17.1 points per game with 5.9 rebounds.

His explosiveness offensively extends beyond the half court. Wiggins' athleticism helps him get out in transition as well.

At 6-foot-8, his length helps him on the defensive end where he can guard multiple positions. 

His father, Mitchell, played college ball at Florida State and played in the NBA from 1984-92 with the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers.

His mother, Marita, was an excellent track athlete at Florida State and competed for Canada in the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games.
