Andrew Wiggins has cancelled his in-home visits this week with North Carolina, Kansas and Florida State.
The 6-foot-7 Wiggins was to have met today with Roy Williams, Tuesday with Bill Self and Wednesday with Leonard Hamilton.
“He will be doing them by phone,” Huntington (W.V.) Prep coach Rob Fulford told SNY.tv. “He’s drained and didn’t want to meet.
“There is no timetable. He’s not back from Portland. He has had two flights cancelled.”
The NCAA Recruiting period ends Wednesday, and a Quiet Period starts Thursday. After Wednesday, he can’t do any off-campus contact visits.
After playing in the Hoop Summit Saturday night, Wiggins told reporters he was looking forward to taking a break.
“I’m looking forward to shutting down for a couple of days, getting some rest, getting some ‘me’ time and just chilling with my friends and cherish the last few days I have of summer before it all gets crazy,” he told Michael Grange of sportsnet.ca. “I’ve been travelling for like three weeks straight so I’m just looking forward to being able to relax and watch TV for hours for hours and lay in my bed for hours and just be me.”
Wiggins already met with Kentucky coach John Calipari before the McDonald’s All-American Game, but it remains unclear if this latest decision means he has settled on Kentucky.
The projected No. 1 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Wiggins can sign a Letter of Intent until May 15, or he could opt to wait until after that to sign scholarship papers.
