Andrew Wiggins to Sign Tuesday; Poll: Where Will He Land?
The most anticipated high school recruitment in recent memory will finally come to a close on Tuesday when Andrew Wiggins makes his college decision.
The 6-foot-7 Canadian sensation will sign his National Letter of Intent “around 12:15,” according to Huntington (W.V) Prep head coach Rob Fulford.
“He does not want to have a press conference,” Fulford said by text. “He wants it private to just have his classmates.”
Fulford added: “Appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding. He wanted his mother [Marita Payne-Wiggins] to be here when he signed. I have no clue where he’s going or leaning.”
The last day of the NCAA late signing period is Wednesday.
Wiggins, the projected No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, is considering Florida State, Kansas, Kentucky and North Carolina.
I’m on record with Florida State, but we’ll all find out soon enough.
