Andrew Wiggins Headed to Kentucky for an Official Visit

USA TODAY Sports

The top prospect in the 2013 class will be in Lexington on Wednesday.

The nation's best high school player, 2013 small forward Andrew Wiggins, is headed to Lexington to check out the Kentucky Wildcats. Wiggins, a senior at Huntington (WV) Prep, will start his official visit on Wednesday. He is expected to attend Kentucky's game against the Mississippi St. Bulldogs before stopping by practice on Thursday morning.

Wiggins has visited Kentucky before, including attending 2011's Big Blue Madness. Along with Kentucky, Wiggins lists the Florida St. Seminoles, Kansas Jayhawks, and North Carolina Tar Heels as his finalists. Wiggins has already taken an official visit to FSU, considered the frontrunner at this point. He plans on taking his last two official visits to KU on March 4, and UNC on March 9. Following the visits, Wiggins will then make a final decision, with the Regular Signing Period approaching in April.

Although Wiggins has visited Kentucky before, he's expecting this upcoming visit to be different and give him more insight into the program. Chris Fisher of The Cats Pause ($) talked with Rob Fulford, Wiggins' high school coach.

"When you go on an unofficial, you watch practice but you don't really have a chance to hang out with teammates. He'll actually get a feel for what college life would be like," Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford told CatsPause.com.

"He'll have a chance to meet different people: the academic people, the athletic director. It's more official as far as what you're looking for and getting a feel for the school."

Along with Wiggins, Kentucky's coaching staff also has offers out to 5* forwards Julius Randle and Aaron Gordon. Kentucky's 2013 recruiting class already features five McDonald's All-Americans, but John Calipari would love to add the consensus top-ranked player to its highly touted class.
