Recruiting Rundown

The nation's top prospect -- Andrew Wiggins -- discusses his game and Indiana jumps into the top 10 in the recruiting class rankings.

Wiggins says he's playing his best ball

Huntington (W.V.) Prep wing Andrew Wiggins has been the topic of conversation lately with his recent reclassification to the 2013 class.

Known for his freaky athleticism, Wiggins is a dominating force from the wing position and is recognized as the nation's best high school basketball player. Headed into his final season he says he's playing his best basketball.

"I'm at the top of my game," Wiggins told Scout.com. "I'm looking good. My handle is feeling tighter and my jump shot is falling. I'm playing more aggressively."

With that said, Wiggins said he still has a lot to work on.

"Nothing can ever be perfect," he said when asked what he was working on. "My jump shot, my handle and always playing hard throughout the whole game. Not taking any breaks and then always being a lock down defender."

Wiggin's, Scout.com's No. 1 player in the 2013 class, is one of the best prospects to hit high school basketball in recent years. Despite the tag of being the best player in America, Wiggin's says he isn't letting the pressure bother him.

"There will always be pressure," he said. "But there hasn't been a time where a lot of people came out to see me and I disappointed them. I'm confident in myself that I can provide for people and entertain them and show them what they want to see. There will always be pressure, but I never let it get to me."

Does Wiggin's think he's the best?

"I think Jabari [Parker], Julius Randle, the Harrison twins, James Young, they are all amazing basketball players and they are going to be pros one day, but I always put myself first, before anyone else."

Indiana jumps to No. 9

Indiana scored the biggest commitment of the weekend by securing a pledge from Scout.com's No. 42 prospect Troy Williams.

With the addition of Williams, Tom Crean and his staff at Indiana now have a pair of top 100 prospects. Stanford Robinson, of Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep, checks in at No. 57 overall.

Joining Williams and Robinson is four-star big man Luke Fischer and three-star forwards Devin Davis and Collin Hartman.

Indiana's five-man class now jumps to No. 9 in the 2013 recruiting class rankings. Last year the Hoosiers finished No. 6 in the final class rankings.

Weekend Commitments

It was a slow weekend for commitments. Outside of the Williams commitment, only three prospects popped up on the Scout.com radar this weekend:

Rene Castron – Butler
Forrest RobinsonDePaul
Donnelle Munda – Farleigh Dickinson
