It appears that five-star Huntington (W.Va.) Prep swingman Andrew Wiggins will not be coming to Kentucky's Big Blue Madness after all.
Wiggins told FOXSportsNEXT today that he is leaning toward returning home to Canada instead of visiting the Wildcats, but wanted UK fans to know it was not a change in his recruiting outlook.
"We are on fall break and it gives me a last chance to spend extended time at home before the season starts," Wiggins said. "I plan on coming up (to Kentucky) to a game early in the season that fits with our schedule."
That may come in mid-November when Huntington Prep is scheduled to play in an event in central Kentucky. HP coach Rob Fulford said Tuesday that plans are being finalized for a venue in the area.
Wiggins, who is currently the consensus top-rated prospect in the Class of 2014, is expected to discuss his potential reclassification with his family during the trip home. He is considering a move to the Class of 2013 with UK being one of his top choices. He is also strongly considering Florida State, where his parents met as student-athletes.
The list of expected guests for Big Blue Madness currently includes 2013 Texas twins Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison, who committed to UK last week; 2013 UK commitment Derek Willis of Bullitt East; 2013 California center Marcus Lee; 2014 Chicago big man Cliff Alexander; and 2014 Indiana point guard Jaquan Lyle. There has also been mention of potential additions like 2013 Michigan swingman James Young and 2014 Indiana forward Trey Lyles.
