Andrew Wiggins cancels scheduled visits with North Carolina, Kansas and Florida State


The nation's top high school basketball player turned some heads with an announcement Monday morning.

Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 player in the class of 2013, has canceled scheduled visits with North Carolina, Kansas and Florida State that had been set for early this week. The news was first reported by's Jeff Goodman.

According to Wiggins' high school coach, Rob Fulford, the cancellations are the product of Wiggins being exhausted from his recent trip to the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, and not an indication that he is close to making a college decision. Wiggins had multiple flight delays during his return trip to his current hometown of Huntington, WV.

Wiggins, who is commonly referred to as "the best high school basketball player since LeBron," was scheduled to meet with Roy Williams on Monday afternoon, Bill Self on Tuesday and Leonard Hamilton on Wednesday. Instead, Fulford said Wiggins will speak with all three coaches on the phone.

The one candidate to land Wiggins that wasn't scheduled to meet with him this week is Kentucky, the program that has long been considered the favorite to land the 6'7 small forward. John Calipari has already become the first coach to sign six McDonald's All-Americans in one year, and adding Wiggins would likely put to bed any debate over whether or not UK's 2013 recruiting class is the best in history.

Wiggins, a Toronto native, scored 17 points to go with nine rebounds and four assists for the "World Team" in the Nike Hoop Summit all-star game on Sunday.
