Maryland men’s basketball guard Aaron Wiggins competed at the NBA Combine looking to impress scouts ahead of the 2021 NBA Draft.
Wiggins had the best time out of all the guards in the shuttle run coming in at 3.00 seconds. The time ranks the fourth best out of all players participating behind Greg Brown III (2.98 seconds) and Corey Kispert and Scottie Barnes who both finished in 2.99 seconds.
The Greensboro, North Carolina native is the third tallest guard in the combine standing at 6 foot 4.5 inches without shoes. Wiggins’ standing reach of 8 feet and 7 inches ranks fourth out of all the guards.
Wiggins participated in the first scrimmage, playing 21 minutes. He shot one for nine from the field, including missing all five of his attempted shots from deep, and grabbed six rebounds.
The NBA Draft will take place on July 29 and the deadline for Wiggins to decide if he would like to stay in the draft and lose NCAA eligibility is July 7.
