Andrew Wiggins is the nation’s consensus No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2013 (according to 247Sports’ composite rankings), and he’s inching closer to making his decision on where to play his college ball.
According to Steve Jones of The Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY), the top prospect will be visiting the University of Kentucky on Feb. 27, Kansas University on March 4 and the University of North Carolina come March 9.
CBS Sports’ Jeff Borzello noted that the Huntington, West Virginia star has cut two schools out of the running:
Ohio State and Syracuse have been eliminated from Wiggins' list. The four aforementioned schools are all that remain for the No. 1 prospect in the class of 2013.
As per Borzello, the 6’8”, 190-pound Huntington Prep star has already taken an official visit to Tallahassee to visit the Florida State campus back in December, but hasn’t made any other major recruiting moves since.
Wiggins certainly picked a good time to strike out on the road, as he’ll get to catch the Jayhawks take on Texas Tech during his visit to Lawrence, and his trip to Chapel Hill coincides with the UNC vs. Duke rivalry game.
Whenever Wiggins makes a decision on which school he will attend (FSU, UK, KU or UNC), it will certainly send shockwaves across the recruiting landscape.
This young man can play a number of positions, has extreme athleticism, NBA three-point range and a high basketball I.Q. He’s going to be an instant starter wherever he lands and could even help bring a national title to one of the prestigious universities on his shortlist.
Wiggins is a game-changer, and we can’t wait to see which program the talented recruit finally chooses.
