Maryland basketball’s 2018 class has its first official member. Four-star small forward Aaron Wiggins, who committed to the Terps in June, signed his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday morning.

It’s the first day of the early basketball signing period, which runs for one week until Nov. 15. Two more Maryland commits—five-star power forward Jalen Smith and four-star combo guard Eric Ayala—are expected to sign the dotted line in the coming days.
Wiggins grades out as the No. 41 overall player in the country, the No. 10 small forward and the No. 4 prospect in North Carolina in the 247Sports Composite rankings. That makes him the highest-rated Maryland signee since Diamond Stone in 2015—at least until Smith puts pen to paper.
The High Point native became the first member of Maryland’s 2018 class with a pledge in June. That commitment is binding now, and Wiggins will be in College Park next fall.
