Ranking the Nation's Top 20 Small Forwards for 2013-14 NCAA Basketball Season
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports
KU's Andrew Wiggins is considered the top NBA prospect in college basketball and that tag brings with it heavy expectations.

Andrew Wiggins is the movie that everyone tells you is going to be incredible and you have to try to temper expectations in your own head or you're just going to be disappointed. 

Yes, he's really, really, really talented. His highlight video is incredible. 

Next thing you know there will be video of Wiggins walking on water, stepping out and then jumping flat-footed over a car while pulling off a between-the-legs dunk. 

Not possible? Pshhhhhh. Social media can make this happen. 

Ask anyone around the Kansas program and they will tell you that Wiggins does not love all this attention, but he realizes it comes with the territory. And after the last year of building hype, he's ready to step onto the stage fully realizing the expectations are out of this world. 

That self-awareness is commendable and it's why you will find the freshman at the top of these rankings. There's no way to justify picking someone else. That does not, however, mean the rest of the country's small forwards are chopped liver. They're pretty good too. So, here it is, Wiggins and the other 19. 

And in case you missed it, here are the top 20 centers and top 20 power forwards with next week's schedule below for the rest of the rankings. 

Nov. 4: Shooting Guards

Nov. 6: Point Guards

Nov. 8: Top 100
