Andrew Wiggins isn’t talking about Kentucky visit

Andrew Wiggins, the No.1 high school recruit in the nation, isn’t divulging any information about his first official visit to Kentucky earlier this week and his tight lipped approach is set to continue throughout the duration of his recruitment process.

Wiggins played in his Huntington Prep’s 121-50 win over Teays Valley on Thursday, just hours after making his first official visit to Kentucky, but it wasn’t the full schedule that kept Wiggins off the court during the victory. He received a hard hit in the face during the game’s opening minute and played just six in total.

The Canadian-born Wiggins appears to be a strong individual and remains determined not to reveal any information about his college choice.

“He’s not going to give up much,” Huntington Prep Coach Rob Fulford told the Herald-Leader. “You guys know him well enough.”

As Wiggins prepares for Sunday’s visit to Kansas, Fulford wouldn’t rule out the possibility his star player has already decided on Kentucky.

“That could be. It could be. I don’t know,” he said. “There’s no doubt about it that it could be. The fact that his parents are on his visits is crucial. Had they not gone to any of the other ones, I would have said that Florida State was a lock. Because they wouldn’t have had anything to compare it to. The fact that they are going says a lot about the process and that they had a chance to see different places.”

Wiggins will be court side as Kansas takes on Texas Tech Monday night and will visit North Carolina the following weekend.
