No. 1 recaps official visits

The nation's top prospect -- Andrew Wiggins -- just took his last scheduled official visit. The Huntington (W.V.) Prep standout recapped his recent trips to Scout.com.

Andrew Wiggins is glad to have his official visits out of the way.

"It's a big relief," Wiggins told Scout.com Tuesday afternoon.

Scout.com's No. 1 player took an official visit to Florida State in December. After taking some time to focus on his high school season, Wiggins recently took trips to North Carolina, Kansas and Kentucky.

This past weekend the Huntington (W.V.) Prep superstar traveled to Chapel Hill (N.C.) to visit North Carolina.

"The atmosphere was great," Wiggins said about UNC. "The fans showed me a lot of love at the game. The atmosphere - even though they were down the fans still supported them the whole game. You could tell how much their fans loved basketball."

Wiggins, who was accompanied on the visit by his parents, heard Roy Williams's pitch.

"He just told me how he would coach me and how their program would be better," Wiggins said. "He's a really good guy. He's a legendary coach."

What stood out the most about the trip to UNC?

"The rivalry between Duke and North Carolina was crazy and how close the schools are to each other like N.C. State and North Carolina too," Wiggins replied.

Prior to visiting UNC, Wiggins officially visited Kansas.

"It was a good trip too," Wiggins said. "It was senior night for both UNC and Kansas. It was senior night for Kansas."

At North Carolina it was the rivalries that stood out the most for Wiggins. At Kansas, the players were a highlight.

"The players were really cool and the coaches," Wiggins said. "Again the fans at Kansas are some of the greatest in basketball."

Wiggins also recently visited Kentucky.

"It was good," Wiggins said. "It was good. Again the fans showed a lot of love at the game. Got to hang out with all the players and all the coaches. The players were cool too."

When asked about Calipari's and Self's recruiting pitch, Wiggins said they were similar.

"All the coaches basically give the same pitch," Wiggins said.

Did any of the three recent visits stand above the rest to Wiggins?

"Not really," Wiggins said. "No. They are all in the same category. I haven't had a chance to sit down and reflect which school would be best for me yet."

Although he has now visited all four of the schools on his list officially, Wiggins doesn't have a decision timetable.

"Nope," he responded when asked if he knew when he would decide. "Not yet."
