Nova Scotia’s Lindell Wigginton made his college decision this morning as ESPN’s Paul Biancardi broke the news on the Canadian commitment to Iowa State.

Others in the run for this Top 10 NPH ranked Canadian were Arizona State and Oregon.

Wigginton has proven his worth over the years at Oak Hill Academy under Coach Steve Smith. He’s been trusted as a scoring guard that can set the table as well, and be a lock down defender. There’s no shortage of athleticism either, whether in transition or tracking down a ball coming off the rim.

The fit at Iowa State seemingly sets up a smooth transition as the Cyclones will have two key contributors in their offense, Monte Morris and Naz Mitrou-Long finishing their college careers after this season; in turn, opening up major minutes for “Linny” to come in and provide scoring.

On the International stage this past summer at FIBA Americas he contributed with an average of 14 points, 4 rebounds and 3.4 assists.

With Wigginton headed to Iowa State, that leaves Shai Alexander, who reopened his recruitment, Oshae Brissett, Marcus Carr and Shamiel Stevenson from NPH Top 10 Canadians that have yet to commit.
