Since reclassifying to the 2013 class, Andrew Wiggins recruitment has been a hot topic in college basketball circles.
“Dates are tentatively set for (Kentucky), Kansas and (North Carolina),” Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford told Scout.com. “Waiting on confirmation from parents that they can go on those dates.”
The dates of Wiggins’ official visits will most likely be Feb. 27 for Kentucky, March 4 for Kansas and March 9 for North Carolina. He already visited Florida State earlier this year, and they now look like a bit of a long shot. His parents need to make sure they can accompany Wiggins before those visit dates will be set in stone.
“Nothing is confirmed until parents confirm,” Fulford added.
I think this is now a two-horse race between Kentucky and North Carolina. The Tar Heels have a real shot at evening up the recruiting battle between them and Duke. North Carolina has a rich tradition to offer Wiggins, but so does John Calipari. Calipari can also probably offer Wiggins his quickest route to the pros. The real advantage the Heels can offer? Playing time and the ability to show his full ability on the court. Wiggins would be joining a crowded Kentucky team and would still get playing time, but would have to sacrifice some of his individual abilities for the good of the team. In Chapel Hill? Roy Williams would hand him the keys to the car.
