Kansas Basketball: Andrew Wiggins' Trimmed List Includes Jayhawks; Sets Visit

Andrew DoughtyCorrespondent IIFebruary 14, 2013

Consensus top recruit in the 2013 class Andrew Wiggins (Huntington, West Virginia) has trimmed his list of potential schools to four, with the Jayhawks included, reports Jeff Borzello of CBSSports.com.

The 6'7" small forward is also considering Florida State, Kentucky and North Carolina after eliminating Ohio State and Syracuse from his list of six. 

After his re-classification to the 2013 class, the Canadian-born dynamic scorer has kept his recruitment quiet, as this recent announcement was his first indication since December when Wiggins visited Florida State. His tentative dates for official visits are February 27 (Kentucky), March 3 (Kansas) and March 9 (North Carolina).

Bill Self has five commits for his 2013 class, one of the deepest groups during his 11 years of recruiting in Lawrence, and Wiggins would be a tremendous offensive compliment to a young roster.

As the Jayhawks expect to lose their entire starting five, the following have committed to Kansas for next season: Conner Frankamp, Joel Embiid, Brannen Greene, Wayne Selden and Frank Mason.

That starting five includes the most versatile scorer in over a decade for Kansas in freshman Ben McLemore.  He is on pace to record the best statistical season by a freshman in KU basketball history, but the five-star Wiggins has the potential to be even better.

The 2013-14 Kansas rotation remains cloudy but littered with long-term potential on both ends of the court. Andrew Wiggins is not the only highly-touted recruit visiting Lawrence in the coming weeks, as the No. 2 overall player (Rivals.com) Julius Randle will be on hand Saturday as Kansas welcomes Texas to Allen Fieldhouse.
