Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker and Aaron Gordon are only three candidates to appear on every ballot
With lingering injuries to top players such Jabari Parker, Julius Randle and Andrew Harrison, new candidates have emerged in the national player of the year race to challenge clear front-runner Andrew Wiggins of Huntington Prep.
Julius Randle, No. 3 vote-getter in the preseason Mr. Basketball USA Tracker, suffered broken bone in his foot on Nov. 24 and likely out three months. We take a look at how this will affect this season’s national player of the year race and how injury has played a role in previous years.
Andrew Wiggins, the consensus No. 1 recruit in the country, leads voting in preseason HighSchoolHardwood Mr. Basketball USA Tracker, now in its sixth year. Jabari Parker and Julius Randle also collect first-place votes.
Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.) earns billing as the preseason No. 1 ranked team in the HighSchoolHardwood Top 50. It’s the third time a Kevin Boyle-coached team has earned this distinction. Nevada’s Findlay Prep and Chicago public league power Simeon round out the top three.
