As of now, there is still debate as to whether 2014′s Andrew Wiggins will reclassify into the 2013 class. But if he does not (and it appears unlikely that he will), Andrew Wiggins could team with Xavier Rathan-Mayes and become a package deal at the University of Kentucky. Rathan Mayes has been a team mate of Andrew Wiggins at both Huntington Prep and on the AAU Circuit with CIA Bounce.
The possibility of a Wiggins/Rathan Mayes tandem at Kentucky got a bit more likely when John Calipari called Xavier on Wednesday to express his interest. Rathan – Mayes had this to say about the phone call and also about the possibility of playing at the next level with Wiggins:
“Coach Cal actually called me [Wednesday],” Rathan-Mayes said. “[He said] that he’s looking forward to seeing me when I go down to school [Huntington Prep in West Va]. They are about an hour and a half from the school, so he wants me to come up and see him and the guys… It’s pretty good to have Coach Cal call you.”
“Definitely,” the 6-foot-4 Rathan-Mayes of CIA Bounce told SNY.tv at Stockton College. “We’ve (he and Wiggins) always wanted to play together since we were young and go to school together so that’s definitely a possibility.”
Rathan -Mayes averaged 15.4 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists last season playing with Wiggins at Huntington Prep.
Kentucky is already the favorite to land the” Twin Tandem” of the Harrisons for the 2013 class but could 2014 be the year of the Huntington Prep tandem
