What is Andrew Wiggins going to do? Is the Huntington (W.Va.) Prep standout going to pick Kentucky, Florida State,  North Carolina or Kansas?

Wiggins has set no timetable for when he might pick a school, and a source close to him says that decision might not come quite as quickly as some are expecting from the nation’s top-ranked prep player.

“I can make arguments for why he might pick any of his four final choices. At the end of the day I think that Andrew will choose based on his comfort level with the school and the coaches,” the source said. “I have no idea how he’s leaning. No one knows but Andrew and he may not know yet.  I think it will still be some time before he’s ready to announce a decision. He has some big games coming up and I think he will be focused on those for the next few weeks.”

Wiggins will play in the McDonald’s All-American Game in Chicago Wednesday. He has the Jordan Brand Classic and Nike Hoop Summit to follow later in April.

However, don’t doubt that UK fans in the Huntington area could help influence Wiggins’ decision.

“The BBN is alive and well in Huntington and the Tri-state area. I think even non-Kentucky fans would enjoy seeing Andrew at Kentucky because it will make it easy to follow him in college. Canada is his home but I think he has enjoyed his time in Huntington.  I hope being close to his second home will be a plus in the Kentucky column,” the source said.

“Andrew is well deserving of all the accolades he has received. He’s a phenomenally skilled athlete and player. He makes big plays look easy. I’ve seen him play now for two years and am still amazed by what he does. It’s fun to bring someone to a game who has never seen him and see their reactions. We will be watching Andrew Wiggins highlights for years to come.  Off the court he’s a sweetheart. Can’t help but want to see him succeed.”

    People can say what they want about Cal and his recruiting. But I can’t get over just how, really, really good most of (if not all) these kids are as humans. And we have not had one embarrassing incident for the team or University since Cal has been here.
    Yet, another reason to love this staff.

    He’s a great one, no doubt, but he needs to make the best decision for himself naturally, so we’ll just have to wait for that moment.

  • Ben says:

    What is the hurry! I just want him to make the best decision for his life. I would love to see him come to KY, but only if that is truly where he wants to be. We will have a great team without him and a fantastic team with him. We will know his decision before next year. Go Cats!

    • King Ghidora says:

      I agree with thinking he really wants to come to UK if he does come. But the rush is that there are other players waiting to make a decision based on what happens with Wiggins. I know that doesn’t affect him but it does affect us UK fans. There are only so many scholarships and they’re holding one for him. If he waits too long UK might not even be able to fill that scholarship. I have a problem with that actually. Players are certainly needed but if they cause you to miss out on other good players then they have done damage to your program.

    I agree with all of the above posts. The Atlanta-Journal Constitution is reporting that Ryan Harrow is transferring to Georgia State and will petition the NCAA for immediate eligibility due to the illness of his father. I think Ryan’s originally from Georgia.

    Thanks, likely good move for all concerned.

  • BobbyBlue says:

    Not familiar with Georgia State…where is the school located,in Georgia ?

    King I disagree. Programs grow weary of waiting for players all the time. They always have the right to take another player and tell the hold out sorry but we couldn’t wait for you anymore. No one is going to do that to Andrew Wiggins. Wiggins has earned the right, as the #1 player, to take all the time he needs and get it right.
