E-mail Print PDF

Ranked first in the nation according to USA Today, the Huntington Prep Express will roll into Marshall County High School Friday for the 17th Annual Hoopfest.Huntington Prep Head Coach Rob Fulford has had a whirlwind November with four of his seniors signing letters of intent to play for major Division 1 schools and Andrew Wiggins, the number one player in the Class of 2014, recently reclassifying in October to the Class of 2013. Wiggins, whose short list of possible schools includes the University of Kentucky, Florida State, North Carolina, Ohio State and Syracuse, plans to make his decision at the end of the 2012-2013 season.


Huntington Prep comes into the 17th Annual Marshall County Hoopfest ranked number one in the USA Today Super 25 poll with wins so far this season over Evelyn Mack Academy of Charlotte, NC, 73-52, Christian Faith Center Academy of Creedmoor, NC, 61-44, Quality Education of Winston-Salem, NC, a former Hoopfest participant, 50-40 and Kennedy Charter of Charlotte, NC, 70-39.
The Huntington Prep Express will play Memphis East on Friday, November 30, at 7:00 which will be their first opponent of the season not from the state of North Carolina and will tip it off on Saturday at 9:00 against Briarcrest Christian.
Wearing the colors of Carolina blue, white and navy, Huntington Prep has an all-star line-up which includes senior Dominic Woodson who recently signed with Baylor, senior Travan Landry, a University of Tennessee signee, senior Xavier Rathan-Mayes heading to Florida State, Moses Kingsley who signed with the University of Arkansas and Andrew Wiggins who is still uncommitted at this time.
Woodson, will head back to his roots in Texas next season with his commitment to Baylor. Rathan Mayes will continue in his father Tharon's footsteps by playing for the Seminoles next season and Kingsley, who hails from Nigeria, will remain in the US and play for the Razorbacks.
Wiggins, who wears the number 22 is a 6'8" 200 pound small forward for Huntington Prep, from Ontario, Canada, made the move to West Virginia in the 2011-2012 season. Wiggins and Rathan-Mayes both hail from Canada and the similarities don't end there, both of their fathers played in the NBA. His genetics don't just come from his father, Wiggins' mother was an all-star sprinter for Florida State and a silver medalist in track and field for Canada in 1984.
Wiggins will no doubt give Florida State his full attention with teammate Rathan-Mayes already making the committment to the Seminoles as well as his parents' alma matre, but Kentucky's Head Coach John Calipari will work his magic to persuade Wiggins to become a Wildcat.
Coach Fulford, who has been at the helm of the Huntington Prep program since 2006, has compiled a 170-24 record in six years at the West Virginia school.
Huntington Prep's roster looks like this:

No. Name Height Position Grade
 1 Montaque Gill-Caesar  6'5"    SF   10
 2 Hakan Pomakoglu  6'5"    SG   11
 3 Tavon Landry  6'1"    PG   12
