Andrew Wiggins wants to play for the Toronto Raptors.

That was what next year's top draft prospect said Tuesday after accepting the Gatorade High School Athlete of the Year award.

Asked if the NBA draft were tomorrow which team he thought would draft him, the Toronto native said his hometown.

"I would like to say the Raptors," Wiggins told a reporter. "I want to play for them."

Wiggins' award has him amongst elite names to be honoured, including LeBron James, Dwight Howard and Kevin Love.

The 18-year-old Wiggins is bound for the University of Kansas, where he hopes to deliver the Jayhawks a national championship.
