Iowa State signee Lindell Wigginton got a nice ratings bump from Rivals when the site released their newest rankings for the 2017 class on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-1 four-star point guard jumped up nine spots to No. 31, five spots behind the last five-star on the list.

The Oak Hill Academy product is averaging 17.7 points, 4.4 assists and 3.7 rebounds so far during his senior season. He’s shooting 48 percent from the field and 32 percent from 3-point range.

Wigginton and fellow ISU signee Terrence Lewis, who stayed steady at No. 116 in the Rivals rankings, were both named nominees for the McDonald’s All-American game over the weekend. The final teams will be selected by the game organizers from the list of nominees.
