Andrew Wiggins, the top high school prospect in America, will visit Kentucky for Big Blue Madness Oct. 12.
The news was first reported by Evan Daniels of Scout.com, but Huntington Prep coach Rob Fulford told SNY.tv that Wiggins actually told Kentucky he would visit “three weeks ago.”
Wiggins will join 2013 commit Derek Willis, uncommitted 2013 forward Marcus Lee and 2014s Cliff Alexander and JaQuan Lyle, and potentially others, including uncommitted 2013 wing James Young, for the event.
The 6-foot-8 Wiggins has yet to officially announce whether or not he will reclassify to 2013 from 2014.
He is expected to meet with his parents relatively soon to make the decision.
He has long said that Kentucky and Florida State — alma mater of his parents — are recruiting him the hardest.
